Amity Dry has been studying music and piano and performing on stage since she was just five years old. She began writing original songs when she was twelve and was accepted into a performing arts school at sixteen. Her life has always been dedicated to following her dream of being a recognised singer/songwriter and in 2003 that dream was realised with the release of her debut album 'The Lighthouse.' But the road wasn't always easy, and Amity spent many years honing her skills as a songwriter and performer before her big break. This journey included making trips to Nashville, USA's country music capital, which is home to many of the world's best songwriters. It was on these trips that Amity really progressed as a writer, and it was following her second trip that she wrote her future smash hit song, 'The Lighthouse.' In late 2002 Amity finally go the break she had been looking for, but it came in a package she had not expected, with a role on the hit reality renovation show 'The Block.' The Block drew audiences of up to 3 million people, all of who were introduced to Amity's music, and it proved to be the break she needed to launch her first album In July 2003 Amity's debut album 'The Lighthouse' was released and debuted at no.8 on the Australian ARIA chart. 'The Lighthouse' went on to peak at no. 6 and was certified GOLD in just a week. Over the last 3 years 'The Block' has screened throughout the world, including the USA, UK, Canada, Asia and Europe and 'The Lighthouse' has been released in New Zealand and South Africa. In 2005 Amity released her second album 'True To Me' independently. This album features a fresh new sound and a stronger feel than 'The Lighthouse' and once again Amity has written or co-written every track. Now, with the first single 'Rollercoaster' gaining strong radio support throughout Australia, Amity was busy touring and promoting 'True To Me' while awaiting the birth of her baby son Jamison Mackenzie who was born April 2 2006 in Sydney. Now Amity will be taking a break until early 2007 to enjoy motherhood. 'The Lighthouse' and 'True To Me' can be bought online at www.amitydry.com or itunes Australia.
