She is the face of unsigned music this is where the true talent is right here in independent music she's totally in a class of her own with her own unique & distinctive style of sound, she deserves your undivided attention her music will stick in your head for a long time.

Amy started to recognise her talent when she began writing music at the age of 12, learn't to play keyboard at the age of 13 and taught herself how to play the piano, much of a quiet child  she kept most of her feelings & emotions within herself her music became her tool to communicate the feelings that she couldn't speak.

Quoting Amy she has said 'It's hard for me to box myself in because i transend genre, i write from a subconscious place of mind, my music is a reflection of everything i am', 'Music is who i am, not what i do'.

She writes to become one with her emotions to engage in her subconscious, thoughts & to express her feelings, music is her childhood saviour, her companion, closest friend & therapy, music has always been an integral part of her life, you can't define her music it's so distinctive & unique that's what i love about her she writes thought provoking lyrics and delicious melody lines.

I can really feel the elements of Bat For Lashes, Enya, Bjork, Florence & The Machine & Kate Bush in her music which i just adore it's an experimental licious fusion of different styles & influences full of ambience.
