ARIA Awards just adore Amy Shark

Tweed Daily News - - PULSE - Chyna Hay­den

THE Gold Coast’s Amy Shark has taken out Ap­ple Mu­sic Al­bum of the Year, Best Fe­male Artist and Best Pop Re­lease at the 2018 ARIA Awards weeks out from her Falls Fes­ti­val de­but.

The 32-year-old has had a whirl­wind 2018, which in­cluded an in­ter­na­tional tour, the re­lease of de­but al­bum Love Mon­ster and nine ARIA Award nom­i­na­tions.

Re­cently speak­ing with

The North­ern Star, a hum­bled Shark spoke of finding out she had been nom­i­nated for Ap­ple Mu­sic Al­bum of the Year.

“I think that it’s huge and ob­vi­ously I’m re­ally proud of the al­bum and I’m so glad that it’s in that cat­e­gory, be­cause it’s a hard cat­e­gory to get in, it’s not one that ev­ery­one will be nom­i­nated for so it’s an achieve­ment in it­self,” she said.

Fol­low­ing years of hard work try­ing to make her break into the mu­sic in­dus­try, fans across the world well and truly adore the charis­matic songstress.

“There’s a mas­sive per cent of it that is work and I need to make sure I am con­cen­trat­ing and not let­ting my­self get too over­whelmed but then there’s def­i­nitely mo­ments when like, I can’t be­lieve I’m in Min­neapo­lis and there’s a line down the road, it’s crazy,” she said.

“I make sure I sit down and re­ally take it all in be­cause it is im­pres­sive and I’m so proud of ev­ery­thing that my team and I have achieved.”

Sell­ing out venues all over Europe, Aus­tralia and the US, as well as an ap­pear­ance at Splen­dour in the Grass, Shark’s up­com­ing set at Falls Fes­ti­val on Wed­nes­day, Jan­uary 2, is an­other feather to add to her cap.

“I’m re­ally ex­cited,” she said.

“(Falls) al­ways have such a great line-up. It’s very ex­cit­ing that I’m ac­tu­ally play­ing one.”
