    Tell us about your music. How did you develop your sound?
    It took a while for me to figure out my sound. Because I was so heavily influenced by a lot of different artists but as soon as I got it, and built a song using all the right ingredients i.e. mixing the right producers with the right sounds, it very quickly set me on fire and it all made sense after that.  
     
    What’s your greatest source of inspiration for making music?
    I think just listening to music in general inspires me. But I also use it as a release, so if there's some heavy shit going down or I feel a bit off I'll usually have a muck around on the guitar and see what happens. Sometimes nothing, sometimes magic.
     
    What can punters expect from an Amy Sharks live show? 
    Brutal honesty and sometimes I'm  a bit of a potty mouth lol. I like chatting about stuff between tracks, and seeing as all my songs are rather personal I can get pretty involved in the performance part too.
     
    What’s the best advice you’ve been given and who was it from? 
    "Who gives a f*ck about record labels and radio stations. Let's just do this for fun." - Shane Billings (current manager)
     
    What Australian track would you play to cheer up someone who was crying?
    Seth Sentry - The Waitress Song. One of the best tracks ever. Plus Who doesn't get happy hearing the word breakfast?
     
    What Australian track would you play to someone to make them cry?
    SIA - Breathe me. That's enough to break anyone in half. 
     
    You’re the DJ at a party. The dance floor is pumping. What Australian track do you put on next? 
    That's easy! Flume - Sleepless!
     
    What was the last local gig you went to? How was it?
    Dylan Joel at the Cooly Hotel - so fun! super dope! 
     
    Tell us about the bands or people in the Gold Coast music community that inspire you.
    We have some cool stuff happening on the GC. Serious talent is growing amongst the palm trees and coffee shops. Some locals I'm into are Georgia Mae, Jesswar, and Being Jane Lane. Sam Morris has really taken our music scene by the balls and thrown it in the spot light for the country to see. Which is rad! Someone had to do it. We are a quiet breed here on the GC. Most of us are more interested in skating, surfing, guzzling coffee and smashing acai bowls than promoting ourselves, but i think the country is slowly turning around to take a peak at us. 
     
    What are your plans for the rest of 2016?
    Looks like I'm going to be doing a lot of stuff between Syd, Melb and America towards the end of this year. Since the release of 'Adore' there has been some cool people keen to give me a run so I'm keen as to make more music, release my EP and play a heap of shows!
