Bio

Originally hailing from the farthest reaches of northern Queensland, Amelia Benefield is a singer-songwriter, electronic producer and composer based in Sydney. Heartfelt lyrics about love and pain are what she's all about so if you enjoy clutching at your chest and reminiscing about life, her music is just what you've been looking for. Her song 'Please Don't Get Bored With Me' won her a place at the 2015 '50 Songs in 5 Days' event held by Specific Music and APRA, and she is currently studying composition at the Australian Institute of Music.

Worth sticking with this one for its six minutes as it's filled with some interesting lyrics and enveloping production. Hopefully this is the sign of bigger things to come for Amelia.

At the risk of being obvious...I don't think I'll get bored of this one anytime soon. It's executed just right.
