Originally from Keith in the North-East of Scotland, Amy has been gathering and writing songs over the last eight years. Read Me Write is the product of the Scottish songbird’s musical maturity and growing confidence.
Amy’s debut release is a lesson in flawless vocal dexterity and heartfelt song writing, the result of which is a contemporary, hypnotic and soaring sound with a side of sass, funk and class.
Since making the final of the BBC Young Traditional Musician of the Year 2018, Amy has performed on BBC Radio Scotland’s ‘Take the Floor’, at BBC Proms in the Park and The Lotus Temple in New Dehli to name a few.
The album features a stellar line-up of seasoned Scottish musicians including Charlie Stewart, Graham Rorie, Innes Watson, John Lowrie, Phil Cunningham, Rory Matheson and Ross Ainslie.
