Swamp HouseNews & Reviews

On stage this week at Newcastle’s home of original live music, The Stag & Hunter Hotel, Mayfield. Friday, March 31st – Archer with Amy Vee | 8pm Free Entry;  Archer is an old-time sing-song man. “well you woodnt call him smart but you woodnt call him stupid neither… he does have sum kindofa way about him…weather he be damned or blessed he certainly can pull a song outta the deep earth or the spaceless space and make you wanna cry or yell or just about any plain ol thing…he speaks of bullshit and of truth and he’s got a red raw beatin heart and a soul which says a lot in this day and age… he’s got a sound that harkens back to an earlier age but also to a future age where the plastic fancies of today are but dust….hes been called a lunatic a mystic a fool and a saint.. the truth is.

Singer/ Songwriter – Amy Vee has returned to the spotlight, exploring the turbulence of life’s joys and despairs with newer sounds from an older soul. Juxtaposing her trademark ethereal alt-folk sound against digitally deconstructed beats and textures, Vee has distilled over a decade of experience as touring singer, songwriter and musician to present a contemporary collection of new songs, exploring themes of grief, fear, acceptance and the all-too-quick passage of time.
