More About Amy
In November 2017, Amy Jones became the third South African Artist to join the Faith Guitars Family. She joins the ranks of Louise Day and Jesse Jordan, and is doing South Africa proud.
When Amy was 14 she started playing the guitar. She decided that she wanted to learn, so went out and got herself a guitar and started teaching herself how to play. When was 16 she figured out that she could turn poetry into lyrics, and that she could truly express herself through music.
While she had to learn how to play guitar, she was always a gifted singer. During High School, she was selected to sing in the South African Youth Choir (SAYC) and Stellenberg Girls Choir.
She kept honing her craft, and just a few years after leaving High School her music career really started to snowball. During her early 20’s she entered Idols SA and did incredibly well. She ended season 9 of Idols in the Top 16!
Life After Idols
After Idols, Amy started looking at how to progress her solo career. This is when she joined forces with Lee Willcock, her manager.
Lee, together with Amy, started Jirah Productions in May 2016. Idols may have been the springboard that got her career going. But it’s through Jirah Productions that her career became properly serious.
Since May 2016 Amy has gone from success to success. She has two singles available on iTunes, with a third one coming out on the 13th of October 2017. [Click here] to go to iTunes and buy the new Amy Jones single.
