|Birth name||Amity Renae Dry|
|Born||9 January 1978|
|Origin||Sydney, New South Wales, Australia|
|Labels||Universal Music Australia|
At just five years of age she started studying music and piano and performing on stage. She began writing original songs when she was twelve and was accepted into a performing arts school at sixteen.
Four couples, including Dry and Rankine, lived in and renovated a run down apartment block. When they had finished, the apartments were auctioned off individually, and the couples got whatever money they made over the reserve price.
Dry and her husband Phil Rankine appeared on the 2013 series of The Block: All Stars and were the winners.
Through the exposure of her talents on the show, Amity gained a record contract and released the album The Lighthouse during the media promotion for the show. It debuted at number eight on the ARIA album charts. The only song released as a CD single was "Start of Something New".
After taking a break from the music scene, she returned in 2005 with an independently released album True to Me.
She has written a musical play entitled "Mother, Wife and the Complicated Life" in which she performs with three other women.
Her brother is Nine News reporter Joel Dry.
