Singer, writer & all-round music addict. In her final year studying music at the University of Westminster. Amy runs both a personal and a music blog, as well as writes and releases her own material. She’s a big fan of music from the 50s/60s, but will probably love anything that has a great melody or message behind it. Not a fan of death metal. It scares her.
