FRESH: ‘My Love’s Not for Christmas’ – Amy Lawton

Amy Lawton says “My Love’s Not For Christmas”!

by Christopher Smith

21yr old UK singer/songwriter Amy Lawton channels the likes of Suzanne Vega, Alanis Morrisette and country-era Taylor Swift. Ever since childhood Amy has been creating rhymes, poems and short stories, whilst for the past six years she has been crafting these ideas into song. Amy has developed her sound and co-written with multi-platinum selling songwriter Matty Benbrook (Paolo Nutini, Dido, Jake Bugg, The Wandering Hearts).

Amy serves up a quirky take on the Christmas Genre with this sweet sounding Christmas pop/country song with a cheeky lyric about how you can’t always have what you want for Christmas when it comes to love. Amy worked alongside multi-platinum writer/producer Matty Benbrook (Paolo Nutini, Jack Savoretti, Jake Bugg, Dido, Beverly Knight, Jamie Lawson) for “My Love’s Not for Christmas”.

While writing for artists such as Sarah Darling, who’s album “Wonderland” went to Number 1 in the UK Country Charts, with Amy’s track “Blue Sky” featuring as the opening track, Amy has been releasing her own music to an ever-growing fanbase. Described as “Sweet country pop right out of Taylor Swift’s Speak Now era”by The Times, Amy is a burgeoning name on the UK live scene. Having just completed her first ever regional tour where she played 19-dates across the country, Amy recently performed at The Great Escape Festival, Ronnie Scotts, The Social, The troubadourand supported Jack Savoretti at Cadogan Hall.

While still fresh-faced, Amy comes armed with sharpened experience well beyond her years and is proving herself to be an exciting new name on the singer/songwriter scene. Originally from Manchester, Amy has honed her craft on the London live scene performing at famous venues such as Ronnie Scott’s, The Troubadour, The Bedford and The Social among others. Her biggest show to date came as support to Jack Savoretti at London’s Cadogan Hall.
