From her website:
"It may be her haunting, husky voice that first grabs a listener, the way it glides over melodies like smoke, but it’s the songwriting that Spicer really wants you to hear - The turns of phrases, the wistful poetry, the smart (and sometimes smart aleck) lyrics. They are intimate and visual, like walking into a movie. There is an edge, a turbulence, in many of the places Amilia writes about, but not all of them.
