Bio

Musician Amy Pollock spent her formative years honing her brand of ethereal, dark folk as a busker on the streets of Melbourne, Australia. Soon finding herself surrounded by an eclectic family of like-minded musicians, Amy immersed herself in the independent music scene and developed the mesmerising psyche she presents today. Amy draws inspiration from artists such as City and Colour, Matt Corby and Pink Floyd as well as finding a particular affinity with the soundscapes of alternative folk and dark electronic artists, immersing herself in the textures and depths they create. Amy’s independent releases have already attracted the attention of the triple j Unearthed team, with music director Dave Ruby Howe likening her vocals to Ben Howard and Daughter. Amy’s velvety voice and atmospheric instrumentals have seen her play alongside local and international acts including Little May, Jon Toogood (Shihad), John Floreani, Asha Jefferies, Ro, and Darren Middleton (Powderfinger). A natural performer, It is very easy to get lost in Amy’s world, drawn in by her dusky voice and gentle ripples of acoustic guitar. 2019 is set to be an exciting year for Amy, with the launch of her next single and accompanying video 'Hear Me' in late July. Amy is currently working on her first EP, which will be independently released in early 2020.

Excuse me! Hello, beautiful tune, how are you doing? I agree with Gemma Pike, there is a London Grammar sound to Amy Pollock's voice in that it's low and delicate - I feel, as a high pitched loud singer, that being able to sing that way takes skill especially when it comes to bringing out the feels which this track does.

A little London Grammar with the vocals, and that percussive lift in the last minute is wonderful!
