Amy Wadge "Hold Me" Released 12th April
Monday 12th April sees the release of 'Hold Me', the sublimely sweet and simply beautiful single from, Amy Wadge. A love song in the most classic sense, it is an unapologetically direct appeal to a lover, delivered with uncomplicated, but heartfelt lyrics in Amy's trademark vocal.
Produced by Stan Kybert (Oasis, Massive Attack, Paul Weller), the track builds from sparse beginnings, through myriad melodies and gorgeous harmonies in the chorus, into a huge, layered sound that makes 'Hold Me' an irresistible teaser of what's to come on her forthcoming album.
Amy, who has previously won the much coveted 'Best Female Solo Artist' at the Welsh Music Awards, has taken time off in the last year as she recently became a mum, but is now back with a renewed sense of vigour and a whole new bank of stories to tell and songs to sing.
The track is also being released in Welsh. “Dal Fi” has been recorded by Amy as a fund raiser for her daughter’s ‘Ysgol Feithrin’ (Welsh nursery schools) with 20p from the sale of every Welsh language download being donated to the Welsh Nursery Schools Movement.
With years of touring experience under her belt (she has supported Van Morrison, Jeff Beck, Damien Rice and Eric Bibb amongst others), Amy has developed and nurtured an absolutely captivating and quite magical live experience. Amy is currently touring the UK. Please keep an eye on: www.amywadge.com for full gig listings.
'Hold Me' is currently available to pre-order at: www.amywadgeholdme.com
From 12th April ‘Hold Me’ will also be available on iTunes
