Amy is a young girl with big dreams and determination. Since the age of nine, Amy has been fortunate enough to collaborate with iconic Australian and US based folk, bluegrass and country music artists. Amy and her family often travel far and wide and have met many people along the travels.

The places they have travelled and people met along the way must be given credit for Amy’s musical journey.

Amy holds a strong connection to Birdsville and the Diamantina Region in the far South Western Corner of Queensland Australia. The family travelled to the area when Amy was just two years of age and it was then when her parents noticed Amy’s natural music ability. Amy picked up a couple of gibber stones as they walked on Adelaide St, Birdsville. She began to make music and express her feelings with the stones tapping them together in rhythm on their walk

 

This was the start of Amy’s musical journey.

There were many family holidays, but the family holiday in 2019 to Australia’s Country Music Capitol (Tamworth) cemented Amy’s future with a burning passion for performing, song writing and storytelling. Cutting her teeth busking on peel street with a strong work ethic enabled Amy in 2021 to graduate the Country Music Academy aged at eleven years. With the fire well and truly lit returning to Tamworth for the festival is the family’s must do destination each January among many others that you can now find Amy performing and displaying talent and maturity well beyond her years.

In 2022, Amy released her first single “Sitting Pretty” which soon followed with her debut Album “Our Land”. The track “As I Ride” co-written with Peter Smokie Dawson, saw Amy reach number 1 on the Tasmanian Australian Independent Country Chart.

 

In January 2023, Amy received the Brumby Award for under 18 female vocalists of the year for the song “Diamantina Dreaming.”  A song Amy turned to music from a poem her father had written about the families love for the region.

 

Amy enjoys telling her stories through lyrics and playing guitar and loves performing these whenever she has the opportunity.  Amy released her second Album “My Escape” 21st July 2023 and is being well received.

 

Amy has captured the attention of many in the audience and the music industry with her big personality, confidence and skills.
