Amilia K Spicer is a Los Angeles based singer-songwriter who’s chosen instrument is the keyboard. Spicer moved to Los Angeles a few years ago with the intention of becoming a film director. Although the visual medium inspired her, she craved a more independent way to express herself. Soon she was performing around town as solo artists on keyboard or with a backing band.
Now touring nationally, Amilia has performed at such esteemed venues as the Kerrville Folk Festival Min Stage, Bitter End, McCabe’s, Club Passim and the Viper Room. Amilia has shared the stage with Dar Williams, Bill Morrissey, Martin Sexton, and other well-known artists. On September 11, 2002 she performed with the Washington Symphony Orchestra for the tribute on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol building.
CDs include Like an Engine (debut album 1999), and Seamless (2003). Performances can currently be heard on HBO and Showtime and some of her songs have been featured in movies. Spicer is a recipient of FEMMUSIC’s top ten Solo Artists of 2001, National Academy of Songwriters: Female Artist of the Year, and ASCAP Plus Award. Her song “Like an Engine” was Get Fancy Magazine’s Top 20 Favorite Songs of 2000 and a 2001 Best Song nominee by Jus Plain Folks.
