Amy has spent many years building a successful career as a singer, actor, pianist and more recently a writer and director.
Amy’s first performance came at the age of 8 when she and her sister performed a duet of the song “We Are the World”. Both girls were most upset to think they were being booed offstage by the crowd…...they had never heard the word “encore” before, which is what the crowd were actually shouting.
Amy was always artistically involved at school which led to a course at the William Bates Academy of Performing Arts after high school.
Amy’s first “paid” gig came when she joined the band “MoTunes”. Amy spent two years touring Australia with the band. One band led to another and Amy has now worked with over 12 bands as both a lead and backing vocalist.
Musical Theatre is also a great passion of Amy’s. Some of her credits include: The Castle (Fab Nobs 2006), Rizzo in Grease (ACT 2007), and Vi in Footloose (WMT 2009).
In 2010, Amy wrote and directed two productions. The first, a one woman Cabaret called “The First 30 Years” which she also starred in and the second, “Once Upon a Time”, a show created for the Drama students at PAHQ.
Amy has discovered a natural flair for writing and directing and hopes to study both in the near future.
From February to April of 2011, Amy ventured to New York City where she lived and became immersed in her art. Whilst there, Amy had the opportunity to spend time with a Broadway actor, who allowed her backstage after a performance, where she was able to stand front and centre on a Broadway stage, a moment that no words could describe.
Currently in Melbourne, Amy is writing several projects, directing some of her own work at
“Club Voltaire”, singing with several cover bands and gigging solo with her piano.
