Returning to Alstonefield for the third time, Amy Wadge has been performing and releasing music since leaving the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama over 20 years ago. The practicalities of combining family life with music, led Amy to spend more time co-writing with other artistes.
She has recently written and recorded six original songs for the hit BBC Wales drama, 'Keeping Faith'. 'Faith's Song' is the theme song to this series. With a Grammy already under her belt for having co-written Ed Sheeran's world wide hit 'Thinking Out Loud', Amy was an obvious choice for lead actress and fellow RWCMD graduate, Eve Myles when it came to finding the perfect artist to write the music for the thriller series. When it was released last April, the TV series broke iPlayer records for its most-viewed non-network show.
Hailing from Bristol, Amy Wadge is a Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter known for her collaborative writing efforts with artists such as Ed Sheeran, James Blunt, and Kylie Minogue. Born in 1975, she developed a passion for music at an early age and was influenced by the sound of artists in her father's record collection such as Joni Mitchell, Tracy Chapman, and Elton John, and soon took to writing her own songs after learning to play the piano at nine years old.
