3. How did she get her big break?
Amy got her first guitar when she was 13, and began writing music a year later. Her break came at 16, when her ex-boyfriend, soul singer Tyler James, sent a tape of her singing with a jazz band to his A&R manager. It eventually led to a contract with the Island/Universal record label, and a publishing deal with EMI.
