MUSIC

Written and performed by Amy Nicholls

Just before I relocated to Lyme Regis, I was contacted by the glorious Ben Travis from Two Cats Music. He had heard some of my tracks, and asked if I had any more. I jumped at the chance of having a producer from Nashville recording one of my little ditties. I produced my vocals in a very make shift home studio. The vocals were recorded in a down stairs toilet in Twickenham to avoid the planes overhead. Ben did all the rest.

When lock down happened, a transatlantic collaboration and friendship blossomed. Ben from Two cats contacted me again, and asked if he could work on another track. I was overjoyed. High praise indeed! Now without the battle with planes and just a pandemic to contend with, I found some time to get singing and writing again.

Can you imagine what we’d come up with if we where in the same room . . in Nashville?

The mind boggles.

Transatlantic Lockdown Track:  Recorded by Ben Travis @ Two Cats Records Nashville.

Amy is a singer songwriter born in west London into a family rich with musicians and artists. Recently relocating to the west country in the pandemic, Amy has focused and developed her style. A natural songsmith who combines influences from the rock, blues, jazz and soul she grew up surrounded by. Now recharged and propelled with oxygen that is flaming her fire


Amy has worked with members of Senseless Things, Big Boss Man and Gorillaz. to name just a few. She has worked as a session singer for her father Billy Nicholls and Pete Townshend since she was a child, which has gifted her a great love for working in the studio.

In 2016 Amy broadened her horizons again and wrote a bespoke piece of music for designer Emma Shipley. This was used in a promotional video on her website.

Amy has collaborated with many artists over the years. A highlight was working with dance/electronic producer Matt whitehead .

For over ten years Amy sung, wrote managed and performed in the band Ladybear. They split in 2017.

Amy’s passion is health and wellness. Using her vocal coaching skills, she supports and teaches people how singing can help reduce stress, increase confidence and boost happiness.


Amy’s contagious, welcoming, high energy approach to life, teaching and music is unique.

About my wellbeing sessions

‘In recent years, numerous studies have shown that singing can have a positive impact on health and wellbeing.   My personal journey through a tough time, highlighted to me how vital I found it to my own emotional and physical health.  I was very fortunate that such a focus was already a huge part of my life.  To bring this simple practice to others, has felt like a very natural progression.   

I hope to create a space for people to come together and sing, without the need for performance or progress.  In the sessions we use breathing techniques already common in other wellbeing areas to sing.  I pick uplifting songs that are accessible in range and easy to learn if not already known.  Above all I hope people leave the sessions feeling like they have enjoyed using their voices’

TESTIMONIALS

What Amy’s students are saying

Amy is a perfect teacher! Incredibly knowledgeable and technically minded but also patient and fun. After only a couple of lessons, I already felt more confident, with better technique and able to sing more consistently for longer.”

ADAM PYKE, BASS PLAYER/SESSION MUSICIAN/SONGWRITER, CATFISH AND ENDING PATHS

“Amy is one of those rare people with a gift – not just in her own musical talents – but also to teach. Her enthusiasm and love for what she does is totally contagious and from the very first moment my nine year old daughter walked in to meet Amy (feeling naturally nervous at what to expect ), she was hooked. Amy’s teaching style is effervescent, I have watched my daughter just bubble as Amy shares with her and demonstrates a confidence that only the best teachers can bring out in a child.”

OTTILIE’S MUM, LONDON

“Amy’s enthusiasm and style of teaching is infectious. Her methods are kind to your vocal cords, your sanity and got results faster than any other vocal coach I have had in the past. My weekly online Skype session with her is the highlight of my week!”

SONGWRITER & SESSION MUSICIAN

Amy released her first solo EP in 2019. Prior to this, she released two albums with the band “Ladybear”, which she wrote and was front woman for. In 2006 she featured on her brother Morgan Nicholls’ album ‘Organised’, and co-wrote the single ‘Sitting in the Sun’ which led to the memorable experience of singing lead for M-Organ at the Brixton Academy whilst supporting Embrace.

Amy has been a session singer since she finished her degree in music, working with numerous producers including Cass Browne (Senseless Things, Delakota, Gorillaz, Penguin Café, Deadcuts) and Matt Whitehead (Dance/electronica producer).

Her brother Morgan (Senseless Things, Muse, Delakota, Streets) she has worked most closely with.

This partnership achieves quite a musical alchemy, much of which has not been heard yet.

Amy also has a Christmas Charity song/video called ‘Festive Kind of Mood’ which she encourages others to mime along to the song.
