Toxic Pop Syndrome
Born and raised in Chesapeake, Virginia, 22-year-old singer/songwriter Amy Peters is better known as Nashville’s next “pop princess”.
Inspired by artists from Shania Twain to The 1975, Amy recorded her first original song at age seven, and spent her early years in the studio learning how to produce her own tracks. While still in high school, she released a self-produced EP titled Based On A True Story, which caught the ear of audio engineer John McBride (Martina McBride, Garth Brooks). Amy moved to Nashville in 2014 and went on to study studio recording as the only female in her class at McBride’s intensive program, The Blackbird Academy. After releasing three self-produced projects—Unscripted (2016), Cinematic: Scene One (2017) and Scene Two (2018)—Amy signed with independent label Sorted Noise.
In July 2019, Amy released her upbeat single “Salt”, which was featured on Spotify’s New Music Friday, New Pop Revolution, and more. Her songwriting alone has earned her recognition across the globe — “Jesus and Shania” was selected as a finalist in the John Lennon International Songwriting Contest, and she co-wrote and co-produced Caroline Kole’s 2018 electro-pop single, “BTDT”.
Amy is currently working with producer/engineer David Kalmusky (Shawn Mendes, Meghan Trainor) and preparing to release more music in 2019.
