Born and raised in Chesapeake, Virginia, 22-year-old singer/songwriter Amy Peters is better known as Nashville’s next “pop princess”. Inspired by artists from Shania Twain to The 1975, Amy’s unique blend of pop melodies and honest lyrics have struck a chord with audiences all across the country. Amy recorded her first original song at age seven, and spent her early years in the studio learning how to produce her own tracks. While still in high school, she released a self-produced EP titled Based On A True Story, which caught the ear of audio engineer John McBride (Martina McBride, Garth Brooks). Amy moved to Nashville in 2014 and went on to study studio recording as the only female in her class at McBride’s intensive program, The Blackbird Academy. After releasing three self-produced projects—Unscripted (2016), Cinematic: Scene One (2017) and Scene Two (2018)—Amy signed with independent label Sorted Noise.
Amy has performed at various festivals across the east coast, but can most often be found playing around Nashville at venues such as the Bluebird Cafe, the Ryman Auditorium, and 3rd and Lindsley, where she shared the stage with Vince Gill. Her songwriting has earned her recognition across the globe — her song “Jesus and Shania” was selected as a finalist in the John Lennon International Songwriting Contest, and she co-wrote and co-produced Caroline Kole’s 2018 single, “BTDT”.
Amy’s mission as a songwriter, producer and artist is to be a positive influence in the industry. She is an advocate for mental health awareness, and encourages aspiring female musicians through her YouTube series “Real Boss Chicks”. Amy is currently working with producer David Kalmusky (Shawn Mendes, Meghan Trainor) and preparing to release the first single from her debut album in July 2019.
