 Notes & Reviews
Amy Baker is a jazz andswing singer, who has performed at renowned festivals and venues all overthe world including Ronnie Scott's, Glastonbury Festival, Edinburgh Fringe, The Tower of London, Montreux Jazz Festival, Goodwood Revival, Derry Jazz Festival, Cannes Yachting Festival, The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show and The Miami Boat Show.Originally from Hampshire, Amy grew up listening to swing music, and admiring everything about the vintage period. When her uncle heard her singing he suggested she have some singing lessons. At the age of 10 she began lessons with John Atkins, an elderly man, almost blind, who could play anything on the piano. Amy began working through her grades in singing and was delighted to win The Arun Young Vocalist of the Year at the age of 12. When John was unable to carry on with her lessons, she started training with international bass concert singer, Martin Elliott. His wealth of experience gave her an excellent grounding in vocal technique and performance skills. Amy then moved to South Downs College to study classical singing and an A Level in music. It was a wonderful two years of study, but classical singing left her cold. She knew she had to find her own style, and find the music that would really feed her soul.At 20 she began working as an Adele tribute act, emulating Adele's warm vocal sound and presence on stage. She was soon getting booked in casinos, hotels and at corporate events. It was the perfect opening to gain experience of singing in larger venues, and to develop her performance style andconfidence. She was getting to do what she loved, although there was still something missing, and she knew that jazz and swing music really made her feel alive.Amy is now in demand as a jazz and swing singer. As well as her many sologigs, she performs with her own band, and regularly appears with the JiveAces, the UK's leading jive / swing band.
