Take What You Get & Make The Best Of It

Amy Diamond

I can't help but feel a little 'dirty' listening to music from a 14 year old but I've been listening to her album all week and she's my new guilty pleasure!

Amy Diamond had her break when she was only 12 years old with her debut single "What's In It For Me." The song was a huge hit in Sweden, staying in the top ten for 4 months! The song went on to become throughout Europe and at one time was the most played song in Poland by the middle of 2005. At the tiem of the single release some Swedish stations refused to play her video stating that at 12 years old she was too young to be placed in the spotlight.

After the success of the single an album was released which went on to sell gold in Sweden and Amy embarked on her first national tour in support of the album. In 2005 at the age of 13 Amy won a Nordic Music Award for best nordic hit in Denmark. She's the youngest perfromer ever to win such an award. She's also the youngest to win two NRJ music awards and earn nominations for the Swedish Grammis.

2006 saw the release of her second album "Still Me Now" and the start of another tour across Sweden. She was named Swedens Summer Tour Queen last summer.

Amy is currently working on a new album for 2007.
