What happens when a classical violist breaks free from tradition and launches into looping and songwriting? A uniquely crafted, soulful and raw account of her life as a gypsy musician told amidst sweet vocals and layers of deep, rich strings.
This is Amy Viola, an exciting new solo artist weaving folk, roots and Radiohead together to create songs that express the fragility of life and the beauty that is found in our darkest moments. Her intricate, captivating performances range from hushed moments of intimacy to riotous, raucous hoe-downs, and her musicianship and voice is described as ‘sublime’ by Kate Ceberano.
Amy made her festival debut at The Inland Sea of Sound in 2019, and has since played alongside artists such as The Cat Empire, Missy Higgins and Killing Heidi. She has studied songwriting with Pat Pattison (John Mayer, Gillian Welch), and is currently touring with Andy Nelson. Amy is writing for her debut album, which will released at the end of 2021.
