Amy Rigby established herself as a solo artist in 1996 with debut album Diary Of A Mod Housewife, but had already been writing and performing her honest, intelligent and instantly-memorable songs for years as a member of early NYC alt-country band Last Roundup and girl group the Shams. Over the last two decades she has toured the US, UK and Europe and released four more acclaimed solo albums, as well as three duo records with her husband Wreckless Eric. This fall, Diary Of A Mod Housewife will be released on vinyl for the first time and Amy is touring to revisit the classics and play new songs from her upcoming solo album due out next year.
"Her whimsical, often autobiographical songs are masterful. Funny and enticing, she is up there with the likes of Paul Simon and Randy Newman."
