Amalie Skriver is an award winning and nominated singer/songwriter from Copenhagen. Her song ‘Nothing To Say’ won in the Singer/Songwriter category in The UK Songwriting Contest 2018 and in 2017 ‘Safe Place’ was a finalist. The songs were examined by expert music industry judges who have worked closely with such artists as Sting, Paul McCartney, Elton John, Kylie Minogue, Robbie Williams, Oasis, Britney Spears and many others.
Amalie was also nominated in the International Songwriting Awards 2018 for Female Singer/Songwriter with ‘Nothing To Say’. ‘Nothing To Say’ was also chosen as one of the strongest compositions of 2018 by music blogger, Martin Loft, and was selected as the track of the day by GFrock.dk.
Amalie is influenced by other singer/songwriters like Alanis Morissette, Tori Amos and Kate Bush, and the music genre is a mixture of pop, folk, country and Christian. Music has always been a great part of her life, and she grew up with music teachers as parents and she began singing when she was only 3 years old.
Amalie is now an independent musician who writes, composes and arranges everything herself and plays piano, guitar and violin. She is accompanied by her childhood friend, the cellist and choir singer, Rebecca Cecilia Kousgaard, and in 2018 drummer Mikkel Mouritsen and bass player Lukas Kaarby joined the team.
Amalie has a desire to connect with people and encourage the audience through the messages in her songs. Her songs are reflecting a young woman trying to find herself and her way in life while searching for a greater purpose.
In 2010 Amalies song 'Free' contributed on 'Acoustika Vol. 23'; a compilation album for upcoming musicians released by the American indie label 272 Records, located in Hollywood. In 2011 Amalie released her debut EP 'Prefer' and that same year the Danish music magazine Bands of Tomorrow selected Amalie as the band of the week twice. She was also chosen to play in Tivoli at plænen at The Bands of Tomorrow Festival 2011.
In 2015 Karrierekanonen (DR.dk) recommended her song ‘Prefer’: “Amalie Skriver har fanget os med nummeret ’Prefer’, der med en folket og melankolsk lyd binder en perfekt sløjfe på ugen.”
