BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Awards Nominee 2017

“Absolutely genius” – Tom Robinson BBC 6Music
“She’s Wonderful” – Jacqui Abbott (Beautiful South)
“Nice!” – David Gedge (The Wedding Present)

With a voice set to stun and a gift for interpretation that is second to none, Amelia Coburn spends every spare moment rifling through records and filtering the findings through her punky ukulele playing to wow audiences across the North East and increasingly beyond. Think Eva Cassidy if she had spent the whole of 1976 in CBGBs.

To categorise what she plays would be futile but her main influences range from classic,sophisticated pop/rock (David Bowie, Kate Bush, early Elton John) through to Punk, New Wave and the first wave of Indie music (The Smiths, The Jam, Blondie) but she is constantly seeking out hidden gems to drop like lovely bombs on her audiences.

Going from strength to strength in 2016 her first forays into writing original material have shown she has a keen ear for a beguiling melody and lyrics. Themes of “The Sea” pervade and there is a folky, dreamlike quality to her own songs and have been played on BBCRadio6 and BBC Radio Tees who have called her ‘Teesside’s Princess of the ukulele’.
