“My music is my diary”, 22 year old country singer songwriter Amy Lawton said when asked about the inspiration for her songwriting.
Amy, born in Manchester and finally settling in the Midlands after moving around with her parents and attending 7 different schools found music and songwriting as a perfect way of expressing her experiences growing up as always being the ‘new kid’. From writing poetry and stories at a young age, songwriting was a natural progression once Amy had picked up a guitar.
Highly sought after for her melodic and lyrical abilities and sweet, pure, beautiful voice, moving to London to pursue her passion Amy has shown no sign of stopping.

Amy is a burgeoning name on the UK live scene. Having just completed her first ever regional tour where she played 19-dates across the country, Amy recently performed at The Great Escape Festival, Ronnie Scotts, The Social, The Troubadour and supported Jack Savoretti at Cadogan Hall.
Still fresh-faced, Amy comes armed with sharpened experience well beyond her years and is proving herself to be an exciting new name on the singer/songwriter scene.
