She was born in Hedon, in the East Riding of Yorkshire, and trained at the Royal Academy of Music. She made numerous appearances at the popular Classics in the Park event, held at Brantingham, and also sang for Glyndebourne Opera, English Touring Opera, The European Union Opera, Wexford Festival Opera and English National Opera.
She died on 24 November 2009. She was 36 years old and had undergone heart surgery five months earlier.
Tests earlier in 2009 had revealed that Amy had a bicuspid aortic heart valve, meaning the valve that pumps blood away from the heart has only two valve leaflets instead of the usual three.
Hundreds of mourners packed into St Augustine's Church in her home town of Hedon for her funeral on 7 December 2009. Amy's fellow musicians from the English National Opera attended the service and sang a piece from Mozart's Idomeneo## which Amy, had been due to perform in 2010.
But she never forgot her home town, helping to raise thousands of pounds for Hedon's St Augustine's Church where she had sung in the choir as a girl.
