Amy Swift has been making waves with her music this year and the third single ‘Every Little Thing’ is no exception.
Hailing from South East London, Amy is no rookie to the industry, having written for a plethora of other artists, and fronting Universal-signed electro-soul act Pacific State, it’s evident she is now solidifying herself as a solo artist and ‘One To Watch’
It’s been a strong year so far, being awarded ‘Artist of The Month’ in September by the iconic Madison Square Gardens Group, an upcoming stint supporting Natacha Atlas on her European Tour, and widespread accolades from the likes of The Guardian, Tom Robinson BBC Radio 6, Fresh On The Net, Earmilk, Pop Dust, and Record of The Day to name but a few.
Pulling on her early influences of Motown, Jazz and R&B, the self-penned ‘Every Little Thing’ showcases Swift’s talents in both songwriting and vocals, displaying the gorgeous more softer side to her voice. Her vocals are rich and velvety, smooth and sultry, but with a vulnerability which makes you feel every inch of the songwriters lyrics as she sings;
‘Let go of love they told me, twice is enough and only a fool don’t give up on borrowed time’.
Produced by long term collaborator “Nadeem”, the production is fresh and stripped back but with a chorus which takes you back to Motown classics of the late 60’s early 70’s. This is a song about heartache, which Swift seems to nail every time. Cleverly weaving between the light and dark that comes with each relationship.
‘I wanted to relate to everyone that’s been in that place, you’ve been messed about, you want to let go but you can’t as they just keeps coming back.
With more music in the pipeline and upcoming gigs, this seems to be just the beginning for Swift.
Catch her on 21st November at Club 229 in London.
