Hailing from Mullingar, Co. Westmeath, Amy Quirke started out as a drummer in a local band. Gigging at every opportunity across the length and breadth of Ireland, not only cemented her reputation as a multi-instrumentalist but also sowed the seeds for her own solo material.

Taking leave of the stage to focus on writing, Amy moved to London and then to Melbourne, Australia. Combining the energy of both cities with her own real-life experiences, she has developed her own brand of honest songwriting both on solo and collaborative levels, and after a stint in Los Angeles, California, Skywriter was born.

After launching her second single in early Spring this year, Skywriter is excited to bring her grunge/hard pop act home to Irish soil this summer.
