After playing her first People’s Choice BASSINTHEGRASS back in 2017, ARIA Award-winning singer-songwriter Amy Shark is set to appear again at this year’s festival with a whole bunch of new music from her debut album Love Monster.
Released on 13 July last year, Love Monster debuted at number one on the Australian ARIA Chart and the Australian and New Zealand iTunes chart, as well as number nine on the United States iTunes chart.
The indie-pop music artist’s lead single I Said Hi has been embraced by fans all over the world, hitting platinum sales (70,000+) within three months of its release. The well-known hit also hit number one on iTunes, Shazam Hot 100 & Future Hits and ARIA Australian Digital Track charts, and came in at number five in Triple J’s recent Hottest 100 countdown.
2016 single Adore was a big game changer for the Queensland-based musician after it was voted in at number two on the Triple J Hottest 100 as well.
The Australian singer-songwriter continues to take the international music scene by storm, completing three Northern American tours and performing sell out shows in Los Angeles, New York, Portland and Seattle. Her debut London headline show in October 2017 also sold out three days after going on sale.
This year looks to be another big one for Amy Shark, with her upcoming Love Monster Australian theater tour on track to be a complete sell out before touring North America in September/October and Europe in January next year.
