Product Description

Recorded in Amy's adopted hometown of Memphis, TN and produced by Paul Taylor, This World Is Not My Home features Amy on vocals/stand-up bass, Jimbo Mathus (acoustic & electric guitar). Jim Dickinson (piano), Tommy "T-Bone" Burroughs (fiddle/mandolin), Paul Buchignani (drums), Forest Parker (pedal steel), Tony Thomas (accordian), Jason Freeman (acoustic/eclectric guitar) and Paul Taylor (percussion/ukulele/acoustic & electric guitar/mellotron/washtub bass). The 10 original tracks on the album, 5 written by Amy, showcase her moody distillation of traditional country, artful rock and cool jazz that shatters the expectations of the genres.

Review

Good solid Country album, teeters on the edge of bluegrass and has some evident jazz influences, I definelty recommend.. --Connie Phillips, Blogcritics.org., December 20, 2005.

An acoustic gem that prances about in a weird netherworld, somewhere between torch, country, vintage folk and other earth stuff. --Andrew Dansby, Houston Chronicle, December 23, 2005

This album is fantastic! It is such a relief to find a fresh, new sound with all the canned, drum machine, mixed stuff out right now. I met her in TN (she's really sweet) and purchased the album from her and lost it. Quickly, I found I missed it in my collection so bought another. Amy has recorded a great album that nicely blends the blues, country and jazz. What an amazing sound that is perfect for any setting. Her voice transfers the depth of the lyrics and the songs are relatable. The song choices range from the deep (This World is Not My Own) to the whimsy (Sailing??)and it is a purchase I encourage any music fan to make. Best album I've purchased in years.

I find myself listening to this one over and over.

I love her voice--somewhere between Lucinda Williams and Kasey Chambers--and the accompanying music adds a dimension often missed by other artists in that it truly complements rather than competes with the vocal.

I was not familiar with this artist until being drawn to the lovely cover art and deciding to take a chance. Glad I did.

That is the best word to describe this debut effort from this virtually unknown artist. There are hints of Norah Jones, Martha Wainwright, Jolie Holland here 'n' there. Yet Amy definitely has a sound & style all her own.
I recommend all the selections on this album. Her interpretations are such that you forget the original versions, but it is her own compositions I admire most.
My only gripe is its shortness. It leaves you wanting more & more of what you just heard. So the best solution is to simply play it again!
The arrangements are perfect(Taylor's production is to be commended). And it is not that Amy has the most powerful or amazing voice. Not at all. She is a singer who is clearly aware of her strengths & her weaknesses, & therefore sings in such a fashion that it puts you in some sort of...heaven. Honestly!
I discovered Amy LaVere (as I do with many artists) from, of all places, the Ben Stiller/Farrelly Bros movie Heartbreak Kid ("Take 'Em or Leave 'Em").
On top of all that she's a beautiful specimen of a woman & plays the upright-bass to boot!
Check her out AND her follow-up 'Anchors & Anvils' which is equally as good (yet as short as well).

Amy Lavere has a voice like those oh-so-vulnerable, little-girl singers of the Roaring Twenties singing, "My Heart Belongs to Daddy." You don't really believe them. Nor do you believe Lavere. There's a tongue in cheek, amusing flavor to her songs. The flavor of the CD is conveyed by the cover photo of small angelic Amy with her great big stand up bass.

The 10 songs range from country -- "Leaving" is a clone of "Your Cheatin' Heart" -- to jazz, rock, and cabaret. The instrumentation is acoustic and electric guitars, quavery mandolin, steel guitar, keyboards and Amy's own bass. It won't fit in any genre. The subject of the songs include loss of innocence and broken romances. Lavere wrote several of the songs. I wish the album included the clever lyrics. Example: "We went sailing...you jumped ship to fish for another....you'd be swimming by with the other sharks...making my world dark....And I don't go fishin' anymore."

I liked this CD well enough to immediately order her followup CD "Anchors and Anvils." Lavere is a winner.
