Born and raised in Chesapeake, Virginia, 21-year-old singer/songwriter Amy Peters is better known as Nashville’s next “pop princess”. Inspired by artists such as Shania Twain, HAIM, and 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, signed with SESAC, and went on to study studio recording as the only female in her class at McBride’s intensive program, The Blackbird Academy. Since then, she has written for countless country and pop artists and released three self-produced projects of her own: Unscripted (2016), Cinematic: Scene One (2017) and Scene Two (2018).
Amy has performed at various festivals across the east coast, but can most often be found playing around Nashville at venues such as 3rd and Lindsley, the Bluebird Cafe, and the Ryman Auditorium. She has shared the stage with Vince Gill and made her debut TV appearance on the Today Show's local Nashville broadcast. 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 has had multiple tracks in the Nashville Songwriters Association International Top 40 quarterly lists.
Amy’s mission as a songwriter, producer and artist is to be a positive influence in the industry, as seen in her music video for "Cheeseburger" (2017). She is currently working with David Kalmusky (Shawn Mendes, Meghan Trainor) on new music, and gearing up for a year full of shows in 2018.
