In April 2017 Amy’s Night Thinker EP was released, it features gold selling single Weekends, Drive You Mad and live favourite Blood Brothers.

Amy’s music is proving to have struck a chord with many, she has sold out two national Australian tours: The Adore Tour and The Night Thinker Tour, appeared at key Australian festivals including Groovin the Moo, Bassinthegrass and Splendour in the Grass. She’ll spend the remainder of 2017 touring the world supporting Vance Joy, Bleachers and performing headline shows and at festivals in the USA, UK and Europe. Many of which have already sold out.
“The crowd was thronging, clambering, and desperate to be with Shark in the world she creates - so much so that the size of the audience far exceeded the size of the tent itself, spilling out into the [Splendour in the Grass] festival site". - triple j
Rounding out the year with award nominations, countless sold out shows and new music on the horizon, Amy Shark has cemented herself as a mainstay in the Australian music scene and is carving out a name for herself around the world.
