The 22-year-old lass from East Dunbartonshire who made a big splash across the whole of Europe with her debut, selling nearly three million copies in the process. On June 9 she played an intimate Q The Music Club Live at The Hard Rock Cafe set.
Performing tracks from recent top five album A Curious Thing, plus some old favourites, and even a Bruce Springsteen cover at this one-off intimate gig.
This Pretty Face
Mr Rock And Roll
Born To Run
Don't Tell Me That It's Over
This is The Life
Our lucky competition winner won the opportunity to review the gig and interview the band. See below to see what they thought:
Having just interviewed Amy for Q I was excited about her live performance on the stage of the Q the Music Club, Hard Rock Café.
Ordinary Life from her second album A Curious Thing started the session in full swing and booming voice.
We were treated to a little chat before she broke into This Pretty Face, her third song to be released from her album soon.
But it was tracks like Springsteen’s Born To Run and her debut This Is The Life that sent her audience into ‘wavy hand’ mode.
Her band was solid to the core and proved that live music is always better than a recording. The venue was small and intimate and you could feel the instruments and Amy’s voice in your chest giving us all an adrenaline rush with the power of their performance.
Her choices of songs were perfect for a Gig that lasted just under an hour and she did what she was there to do. Entertain and put a smile on the faces of all who saw her.
It’s the second time that I have seen her now and I firmly believe she’ll be around on the scene for as long as Springsteen.
Long may she reign.
