Since 2016, singer, songwriter and multi-talented musician Amy Jones has been investing her energy in developing and honing her God-given gift to make the world a brighter place, through the power of music. Amy’s hard work is now paying off; she is on the cusp of global pop success.

Growing up, Amy’s love for music only deepened as she taught herself to play the guitar at age 14. Four years later, in 2013, Amy took the leap of faith to take part in the IDOLS-SA competition. The support she received inspired her to take the next step in becoming a respected artist.

Although Amy’s music career started in 2016, it was two years later when she met with her manager, Lee Willcock, from Jirah Productions, that things really began to take off. “Having Lee in my corner has solidified a path of success that I am delighted to follow,” Amy remarks. They set goals for her music career, such as to get her songs on the radio and television. By 2022, Amy not only achieved her goals but surpassed them. Her first single, “Sunrise” produced by Cosher Studios, swept local and national radio play and amazing feedback from listeners followed.

Amy’s commitment and hard-work has seen her steadily build a legion of fans through her songs. She looks to connect with people who share her ambition and is usually armed with just an acoustic guitar and a beautiful voice. Amy explains: “People seem to enjoy my lyrics within my melodies. I write positive, upbeat tracks so people feel inspired and entertained after listening.”

In 2018, “You and Me”, Amy’s fourth hit single released through Sony Music was created with a surprising but inspiring EDM collaboration with Cinimin (Kyle and Austin). This song went on to win the award for best EDM song of the year and she thereafter had the opportunity to perform it and share stage with international act Major Lazor. Her songwriting improved immensely, furthering her success. A year later, Amy released her fifth single, “Get a Little”, produced and mixed by Kyle Petersen and Mick Evans at Melpro Studios.

In 2019 Amy had the wonderful opportunity to sing for the South African president Cyril Ramaphosa on request at a conference held at the TAJ hotel. Later that same year Amy was on the line up to perform at the Heart FM music festival held in the Newlands Cricket stadium and performed for the crowd of close 5000 people.

2020 brought a new challenge to Amy’s music career with the emergence of COVID-19 forcing her performances and travel to abruptly come to a sudden halt. But Amy pushed on, released her sixth single “Dance on My Own” which charted at the Number One spot on Heart FM for an outstanding five weeks. Not one to back away from a challenge, “Dance on My Own” was featured in the Netflix original series, Jiva. Despite the pandemic, Amy ventured to Lusaka, Zambia, for an annual festival of over 3000 people to perform.

In 2022, Amy performed at both the Semi Finals and Finals of the international URL Rugby competition, where she took to the centre of the field at the DHL Stadium to entertain the well over 30 000 fans in attendance before the start of the game. Later that year Amy had her UK debut, performing at the Annual Shrewsbury Flower Show.
Upon returning to South Africa, 2023 has started off on a high note, and Amy was the lead act for the internationally staged event, the Formula E fan park and she shared the stage with DJ Zinhle which was held in Cape Town CBD. “Amy is an inspiring presence on the stage, always leaving the audience wanting more. It’s no wonder you can see her career skyrocketing in the years to come,” commented a fan. Amy followed these events to go on and share the stage at the Grand Arena alongside 90’s Divas and sensational hit makers Robin S and Sybil whilst on their SA tours.

As her career grows, so does Amy’s music library, and fans can expect her to release her first album, “My Forever Friend” this year. This 7 track Album shall be performed for the very first time at the Move the Mountain, record breaking music festival, to be held at the Newlands Cricket stadium with the crowd estimated to be at well over 3000 people in attendance.
