What they say…
Making a very welcome third appearance in the Acoustic Sussex programme, Amy Wadge is is a fine singer/songwriter and inspirational live performer, with a vocal range that can be as intimate as a whisper or as powerful as gritty gospel shout.

She first came to national attention in 2002 when she won Best Female Solo Artist at the BBC Welsh Music Awards, ahead of Charlotte Church.  She went on to win same award the following year (beating Cerys Matthews).  Her honest, unsentimental emotionally articulate songs have often been compared to Sheryl Crow.

She has appeared at many festivals including Glastonbury and the Cambridge Folk Festival. In 2003, she was personally invited by the Welsh Prime Minister Rhodri Morgan to perform for the 'Wales Rocks Sydney' showcase in Australia during the Rugby World Cup. She has opened for the legendary Jeff Beck and played support to Van Morrison, Damien Rice, Brian Kennedy and Eric Bibb, among others

Amy’s new release, "Bump!", was recorded at Room With A View studios in Dorset, at the end of her "Bump on the Road Tour", when she was nearly eight months pregnant! Amy has four previous releases; The Famous Hour, (2002), Woj, (2004), No Sudden Moves, (2006) and Tougher than Love, (2007), by an all female, three part vocal harmony group called Hummingbird, in which Amy was involved and which toured extensively during 2006-7.

What we say…
Amy is a superb singer, guitarist and songwriter – she really has it all. She was our choice for the first ‘official’ Acoustic Sussex gig in February 2005, and this welcome return marks her third appearance for us. Just great!

Support for this show is from Brighton-based Andy Walker, who last year supported Sandi Thom in the Acoustic Sussex programme and has recently been performing with Kiki Dee.
