Amy Wadge, (pronounced 'Woj'), is an established singer-songwriter with four album releases to her name as well as a number of cuts with other artists. Her latest album, "Bump", which was released in May of 2008, was recorded when she was nearly eight months pregnant. Hence the title!

Amy has toured extensively in Europe, Asia and Australia and has just returned from the US, after a highly successful series of appearances at 'South by South West', which resulted in global recording and distribution approaches. On a previous visit to the States, Amy appeared at Nashville's renowned Bluebird Café and took the place by storm.
A gutsy performer with a voice that is "tough but tender"[Venue Magazine], Amy has supported some of the world's great artists,like Van Morrison, Damien Rice, Eric Bibb and was Jeff Beck's chosen support for the whole of his first UK tour for 15 years in 2004.
Having taken time out to have a baby, Amy is delighted to be back out on tour - if only to have a rest!
