The CoffeeBar Kid talks to Amy Shark


Aussie singer/songwriter Amy Shark is in town.  So, Groove's CoffeeBar Kid rang her up for a bit of a chat about her music and tour.  Details on that are below:
Amy Shark is an indie-pop songwriter who grew up in the Gold Coast, Australia. Before the success of Amy’s debut single ‘Adore,’ she had been a video editor for the Gold Coast Titans and a resident of Broadbeach Waters with her husband Shane and was an active musician on YouTube since 2014.
‘Adore’ was released in July 2016 and the track was almost immediately added to  Triple J, where it eventually peaked at #2 on the Triple J Hottest 100.
The single has accumulated over 60 million streams worldwide, debuted at #3 on the ARIA Singles Chart, peaked at #1 on the iTunes AU Singles Chart and Shazam’s Australia Top 100 - proving the hit to be a huge success in Australia, and is now certified three times platinum.
The video clip for ‘Adore’ was shot and edited by Amy herself and has had over 7 million views on YouTube.
Last year she was the winner of two ARIA awards (Best Pop Release and Breakthrough Artist) and her debut EP Night Thinker exploded into the top 10 on iTunes in 15 countries. Amy also became the first-ever Australian Apple Music ‘Up Next’ Artist.

Amy’s success story continues to grow both here and abroad. Her latest single ‘I Said Hi’ has reached 2 x platinum sales in Australia.
