About ME

Amy & The Calamities is the creation of solo artist Amy Wawn, a musician and singer-songwriter from Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. As a performer, Amy’s style ranges from lively foot-stomping folk rhythms to the dirty-delicious sounds of delta blues on the slide guitar, accompanied by a dark, brooding vocal range, lilting melodies and thoughtful lyrics.

 

The ‘Calamities’ is a title that grew organically over time. It was originally coined one evening after an open mic in Cape Town, South Africa and stems from the various comedic mishaps on stage, the odd coincidences and the regular antics of jovial friends and fans.
