In the nine years since she released her debut album, Amy LaVere's music has been called many things: dark and sexy, witty, feisty, breezy, mysterious. And she is all of that on 'Runaway's Diary'.

If 2011's 'Stranger Me' was Spin Magazine's "Break Up Album Of The Year', then it's 2014 follow-up solidifies LaVere's position as masterful storyteller.

Produced by Luther Dickinson (North Mississippi Allstars) and recorded at Music+Arts Studio in Memphis, the new concept album sets to music the details of Amy's journey as she ran away from home at the age of 15.

Press Quotes

Aptly entitled Runaway's Diary - "she was that runaway, at 15, when her parents split. This is her story. Her band plays all kinds all kinds of subtle, repsonsive Memphis-out-of Nashville rock 'n' roll" (4*)


"a stunning return to form, proving that life experiences oftenprovides the best inspiration" (4.5*)

The Sun

"Sexy, and wild, sad and funny – this is a Diary well worth making a date with" (4*)

The Daily Mirror

"Runaway's Diary' is a record of hugely impressive depth and emotional range." (9/10)


"an album of emotion, catharsis and innocence"

"Considering the subject matter, this is an upbeat album, as if LaVere is looking back on her youthful adventures with a twinkle in her eye" (4*)
