Since making the final of the BBC Young Tradi8onal Musician of the Year, Amy Papiransky has con8nued to carve her name in the ScoAsh music scene.
Originally from Keith in the North-East of Scotland, and now residing in Glasgow, Amy – a music teacher by trade – has been wri8ng and recording her own material for the last eight years.
“A bit of Dolly and a bit of Carole King with the piano, and a real 8e in with good country wri8ng over her stunning Sco>sh accent!” – BRIT and Ivor Novello Award Winning Singer/Songwriter KT Tunstall.
A classically trained and infinitely talented mul8-instrumentalist with folk roots, Amy has toured in Canada, America, Ireland and Germany and played at the prominent Lotus Temple in New Delhi.
She has also performed live on BBC Radio Scotland’s Hogmanay Show, at BBC Proms in the Park and Roddy Hart’s BBC Quay Sessions.
“A born storyteller, with the ability to bring emo8ons to life through her songwri8ng” – Roddy Hart, BBC Radio Scotland.
Amy’s debut album Read Me Write was released in September 2019 – a lesson in flawless vocal dexterity and hear[elt song wri8ng, the result of which is a contemporary, hypno8c and soaring sound with a side of sass, funk and class – the product of the ScoAsh songbird’s musical maturity and growing confidence.
“Read Me Write is something of an astonishing debut – the lyricism of the songs, the singing, the arrangements and the emo8ons explored are of a sort one would expect to hear from a much more mature ar8st.” – The Na8onal
A young woman with plenty to say, Amy has carefully cra\ed a collec8on of new mellow, upli\ing pop songs and effortless ballads which tell tales of love, loss, heartbreak and strength and she is looking forward to sharing them with the world in 2021.
