Amy LeVere & Will Sexton @ The Zoo Bar

July 3 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

$12.00

Born in Shreveport, Louisiana, Amy’s family travelled throughout the United States and Canada for her father’s job. She moved to Memphis in 1999 and Will joined her nine years ago. Signed by Archer Records, Amy released her debut album “This World Is Not My Home” in 2006. That same year she made her acting debut as Wanda Jackson in Walk The Line, and another role in Black Snake Moan. In 2007 Amy released “Anchors and Anvils,” produced by Jim Dickinson. This second album rose to number six on the Americana Music Charts and earned her a nomination for the Americana Music Association Awards Best New or Emerging Artist. Her sweet soprano voice, coupled with her whimsical and biting lyrics, is the reason The City of Memphis named Amy “Best Singer in Memphis” in 2010 and 2011. In 2012 she formed The Wandering – a quintet bluegrass band – with Luther Dickinson, Shannon McNally, Valerie June and Sharde Thomas.

With a career that began as a nine-year-old guitar player sitting in with Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble, Will Sexton has had a long career as a musician, songwriter and producer. On July 15th, he performed at Six Springs Tavern in Richardson with his wife, upright bassist Amy LaVere as part of their North American tour. As a teenager, Will was signed to MCA Records and released one self-titled album in 1988 with his band, Will and The Kill, which reached #129 on the Billboard 200. The featured single, “Heart of Steel,” peaked at #28 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.
