Shelley Theatre, UK, Bournemouth (15/Nov/2020) Artist Biography
Amy Jane Studt (born 22 March 1986) is an English singer, songwriter and musician. Growing up in a musical family she recorded her first demo by age 14, which eventually got her signed to Polydor. Studt released her first single "Just a Little Girl" in July 2002, to international success. It was followed almost a year later by "Misfit", which came to be her highest charting single. The same month her debut album False Smiles appeared. Late 2003 and early 2004 two more singles were released, "Under the Thumb" and "All I Wanna Do" respectively, but only to diminishing sales. That caused Polydor to drop Studt in February 2004.
From then until the end of 2006, Studt stayed out of the public eye. But in 2007 it was announced that she was working on a new album, now with the label 19 Entertainment. Some of her new material was published on MySpace. On 3 December 2007, "Furniture" was released as a digital single, and the album, My Paper Made Men, issued on 5 May 2008.
Studt was born in Hammersmith, London. Growing up in Bournemouth, Dorset, she started teaching herself piano, playing guitar and learning the oboe. Studt's father is a violinist and a conductor who has worked with Roy Orbison, Shirley Bassey and The Beatles to name a few, either touring or recording and has played on countless films, while her mother was head of music at St. Katherine's Primary school. Amy also studied a term at Vocaltech vocal school in London, working with close friend, fello co-writer and Vocaltech tutor Yak Bondy.
From the age of 13, she attended Bryanston School, Dorset on a 50% music scholarship (having previously attended Castle Court School, Dorset). By the time Studt was 14, she had written 42 songs. Her father, who regularly works in studios, suggested she record some. She gave or sold the finished CD to various friends, and one found its way to Simon Fuller (manager of Annie Lennox, Spice Girls and S Club 7, among others).Wide ThumbClearartFanartBanner User Comments
