GFM recently had the opportunity to interview singer/songwriter/pianist Amy LaCour. A few months ago we posted a preview of Amy’s new album entitled The Upswing which is out now and can be purchased on her website amylacour.com iTunes or CD Baby.

In this interview, we talk about Amy booking her first solo tour, professionalism in the indie age, musical influences and more.
