Grammy Award winner Amy returns for a rare solo appearance.
Grammy winner Amy Wadge is widely regarded as one of the country’s most successful female singer/songwriters. Over the course of five solo albums, two collaborations, numerous compositions for other artists and hundreds of live performances all over the globe, she has established an outstanding body of work.
Her voice is simply amazing with a breathtaking range and emotional impact while her songwriting continues to surpass most of her contemporaries.
She has recently written songs with numerous upcoming songwriters, including Ed Sheeran, who released an EP, “Songs I Wrote With Amy”. Ed’s globally best-selling single, “Thinking Out Loud” was co-written with Amy and has brought her songwriting even greater critical acclaim from a wider audience, along with winning Amy a Grammy and receiving a BRIT nominations.
In the Spring of 2018 Amy wrote and performed the music to the BBC Wales’ hit drama “Finding Faith” which broke all iPlayer records, and has recently released a new EP “Walking Disaster”, recorded in Nashville…along with co-writing tracks for the new Kylie Minogue album. Don’t miss this rare appearance to catch her live and solo!

“Amy is a ray of light one moment, shot through with sorrow the next. Her voice is amazing and it’s suddenly clear why she’s getting so much recognition” – Big Issue
“The new Joni Mitchell, with her distinctive voice and well-crafted songs” – London Evening Standard
‘The Æther is Record of the week for outstanding songwriting’ (International Songwriters Association) ‘Incredibly talented singer/songwriter and a new super-producer’ (KMM Reviews). ‘Reminiscent of the Twin Peaks soundtrack…feel the hairs on your neck stand on end… (BBC Introducing)
These are a sample of the plaudits used to describe the award winning original music of David Smith aka The Æther, the mysterious Bath based singer-songwriter, who draws upon an eclectic mix of the world’s most respected artists for inspiration, yet creates a sound that is uniquely his own. Since David last played at Chapel with Amy he has rarely performed live, instead focusing on writing and recording in his home studio. So far in 2018 he has released an award winning LP, an EP called A D D E N D A and is releasing a series of singles every few weeks until the end of the 2018.
