Ahead of her massive national tour, Queensland born 8 time ARIA award-winning, singer-songwriter Amy Shark is preparing to knock our collective socks off with two huge shows at CPAC.
After honing her craft and self-producing her music for years, Amy became a household name in 2016 with the release of her breakout hit, ‘Adore’. The emotive single put Amy on the map as one of Australia’s most formidable emerging songwriters and ‘Adore’ went on to achieve 5 x Platinum certification in Australia, a streaming count that surpassed 100 million and second place in the influential listener-voted 2016 Triple J Hottest 100.
Soon, the global music community came knocking, leading her to work with Blink 182’s Mark Hoppus, pop heavyweight producers Jack Antonoff and Joel Little, among others. In 2018, Amy released her debut album, Love Monster to a ravenous global audience, scoring nine nominations at the 2018 ARIA Awards and four wins, including Album Of The Year, Best Female Artist and Best Pop Release.
Fast forward to now and her national tour, in support of her highly anticipated sophomore album, Cry Forever, looms. After all the uncertainty of 2020, Amy is ready to go hard; “This is me properly hitting my stride,” she affirms. “The next chapter will define me even more than Love Monster did.”
