Read Me Write is the stunning self-penned debut album from Scottish singer-songwriter Amy Papiransky set for release on Sunday, 1 September. Originally from Keith in the North-East of Scotland, Amy has been gathering and writing songs over the last eight years. Read Me Write is the product of the Scottish songbird’s musical maturity and growing confidence.
A music teacher by trade, Amy’s debut release is a lesson in flawless vocal dexterity and heartfelt song writing, the result of which is a contemporary, hypnotic and soaring sound with a side of sass, funk and class.
This a young woman with plenty to say. A born storyteller and songwriter, Amy has carefully crafted a collection of mellow, uplifting folk-pop songs and effortless ballads which tell tales of love, loss, heartbreak and strength.
From the warm tribute ‘Oh Mother’ which marvels at her mum’s resilience, to ‘Winter Winds’ which explores Amy’s experience growing up in a small town in Scotland’s North East, the album takes listeners on a journey of personal growth.
The Scottish songstress is a classically trained pianist and violinist and this musical ear combines with clever and creative song writing to wonderful effect on Read Me Write. ‘Jen-nifer’, which was written for two hugely important women in Amy’s life, one of which she has lost, is expressed in a sweet flawless tone to emotive effect. While the brilliantly cheeky and upbeat track ‘Find Myself’ delves into the nuances of one particularly tricky family relationship.
