Ofttimes the easiest way to describe someone's music is by lumping them into a broad genre and putting a dot on it. With Amy LaVere it's easy to say she's an Americana artist. Which totally makes sense because she was nominated for a Best Emerging Artist award from the Americana Music Association. But she also integrates gypsy jazz and alt-country into the mix. And it's a beautiful mix. To top it off, she's also an actor and has appeared in feature films like Walk The Line (as Wanda Jackson) and Black Snake Moan.
