Over the past ten years, fans have gotten to know Amy Sheppard as the blue-haired pop powerhouse sharing international stages with her bandmates and siblings George and Emma as the Brisbane trio behind the worldwide hit “Geronimo”, Sheppard.
In 2022, Amy embarked on an exciting new adventure as a solo country singer, embracing change with the same vivaciousness and authenticity that has endeared her to so many as part of Sheppard. It has been an incredible start for Amy’s country music career, achieving a #1 ARIA Australian Country album chart debut for the EP ‘Nothing But Wild’ and four Top 3 singles on the CountryTown Hot 50 (Australia’s official country airplay chart) with ‘Nothing But Wild’, ‘Blue Guitar’, ‘Couple Goals’ and ‘Something Good’s Gonna Happen’ (with The Wolfe Brothers). Amy’s latest single ‘Sometimes You Learn’ is an up-tempo slice of country-pop with an edge.
In addition to fantastic airplay and streaming success, Amy has graced the stages of some of Australia’s biggest country music festivals over the last year, including KIX Live in the Park at the Tamworth Country Music Festival, Savannah in the Round in Mareeba and CMC Rocks.
Raised on country music when growing up in Papua New Guinea, Amy was finally inspired to start writing country songs after her first trip to the CMC Rocks Festival in Ipswich in 2019. After recording in Nashville with award-winning songwriter and producer, Lindsay Rimes (Thomas Rhett, Kane Brown, Lee Kernaghan, The McClymonts, Kelsea Ballerini) and two years spent finessing the tracks during the pandemic, the project is finally ready to launch.
Combining Amy’s pop sensibility with subtle country arrangements and instrumentation such as pedal steel and slide guitar, the new music also sees her experiment with storytelling more than ever before. Eager to connect with fans new and old, Amy is primed for a solo turn in the spotlight. The Sheppard story is far from over, but Amy’s new chapter is off to a flying start.
