Award-winning singer Amy Vee is celebrating the release of Same Skin – her sophomore album – with a six-date tour of the East Coast. Same Skin has been described as 'a seductive and sumptuous exploration of both the ever-changing and constant elements of the soul,' and promises to be just as seductive and sumptuous live on stage.
A Hunter-based songwriter, Amy Vee already has plenty of experience entertaining old fans and winning new ones on stage, having supported international acts like Newton Faulkner and Passenger as well as Australian legends including The Whitlams, Lior, Sarah McLeod and Diesel.
'I'm playing a bunch of solo shows and a few very special band shows with Gareth Hudson and Andrew Sampford,' says Amy. 'I think it's going to be a really unique live show. I've purposely chosen the most intimate venues I could find because it's really important to me to connect with people on that level.'
Amy Vee's music has received airplay on Triple J, ABC Local Radio Network and a number of regional and community stations across Australia. Her tracks have reached Top 20 in both iTunes and Triple J's Unearthed charts, with 'Red Desert Heart' winning the Studio 301 All Access Competition.
The lead single off Same Skin, 'Paper and Wood', is a fitting first taste of Vee's song-writing prowess. The track alludes to the idea that it sometimes takes the destruction of something to make room for creation, and you can catch Amy creating a truly memorable experience in an intimate setting on her forthcoming East Coast tour.
