Free MP3's of Amy Spear - One of the Best Female Singers in Rock

I used to play guitar in a band called the Poppyseeds. We were an average psychedelic garage rock band with an extraordinary singer - Amy Spear. The problem with the Poppyseeds was that we went through bassists like Spinal Tap going through drummers. In two years we went through ten bass players - from a punk junkie to a jazz cop to a Lemmy (Motorhead) look-alike. What made the struggle worth it was playing with Amy. She's one of those singers that has it all - amazing song writing skills, massive vocal range, and a solid stage presence.

Amy Spear's new self-titled band plays a very cool mix of dance pop rock. Her guitarist and co-writer Alan Reed is a cross-genre master weaving blues, country and rock licks into these highly produced songs. Think Led Zeppelin backing Kylie Minogue.

Her site has five free MP3's.

You can also find Amy Spear on The Unsigned Musicians Network.
