Recently signed by Jazz Re:Freshed, Amy bridges the old school jazz tradition of musicians such as Betty Carter and Wayne Shorter with the modern bops of artists such as D'Angelo and Kimbra. Amy's band offers an energetic performance that celebrates art, freedom and black pride. Having already performed at the EFG London Jazz Festival, the Jazz Cafe and several festivals last year, Amy is currently working on her debut EP.
Over almost three decades, Tomorrow’s Warriors has proved a crucial development platform for many of the artists now tearing up the international jazz scene – Moses Boyd, Nubya Garcia, Cassie Kinoshi and Nérija, Femi Koleoso and Ezra Collective, Binker Golding, Shabaka Hutchings and Sons Of Kemet, Cherise Adams-Burnett, Eska, Denys Baptiste, Soweto Kinch, Zara McFarlane, and so many more…An alumni of the Tomorrow's Warriors umbrella, Amy is now flying solo and has no limits in terms of genres and disciplines practiced and experimented with. Not to be missed!
