    Amy and The Calamities

    Americana

    Amy & The Calamities is the stage name of Amy Wawn, a musician and singer-songwriter from Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. She writes music inspired by her home, by the Celtic songs her mother would play when she was young and by a strong dose of the blues, finding influences in artists like Howlin’ Wolf , Nina Simone, and the White Stripes. Amy’s style is marked by lively foot-stomping folk rhythms, the dirty-delicious sounds of delta blues on the slide guitar and by a dark, brooding vocal range, lilting melodies and thoughtful lyrics.

    Amy played her first open mic night in 2014 at the Obviously Armchair in the quirky student suburb of ‘Obs’ in Cape Town, South Africa. Before moving to London, Amy performed at several major festivals around Zimbabwe both as a solo act and in a trio with percussionist Nigel Mzingaye (Mzie) and electric guitarist, the aptly named Jonathan Wise.

    Amy now resides in Camden Town, North London. She released her debut EP 'The Suspects' in February 2018 in collaboration with violinist Georgina Leach who was nominated as ‘Instrumentalist Of The Year 2018’ by the Americana Music Association. The album features six signature tracks and has been met with some great reviews. Indie Band Guru describes it as an EP that ‘perfectly showcases a musician who has a lot to offer. With an impressive range of sound, a lyrical depth and sublime vocals, all the right boxes are ticked. 'The Suspects' is available on all online stores and streaming sites. Also in 2018, Amy was invited to play on The Den Stage at The Cambridge Folk Festival which headlined artists Patti Smith and First Aid Kit that year.

    You can also catch her performing at one of London’s more intimate live music venues, the much loved and eclectic little gem that is Spiritual Bar in Camden.

    “that one might become..  quite unwittingly… a source of marvellous accidents.”
