“I absolutely love ‘Weight’. I remember feeling exactly the same when I heard Ellie Goulding for the first time, just before she took off and conquered the world, and I predict similarly big things for Aymee.”
— Matt Edmondson
Worcestershire raised, London based singer songwriter Aymee Weir has spent the past 6 years honing her craft by busking on the streets of London and developing her sound in bedroom studios.
Aymee’s latest single ’Sunday’ was created during a lonely lockdown as a way of escaping to a place of togetherness, which at the time seemed a world away. The dream-pop single is full of breezy vocals and woozy guitars.
Recently, Aymee collaborated with Radio 1 DJ, Matt Edmondson. Through various zoom calls over lockdown, they recorded ‘Your Car’ written by Matt about his father who suffered with depression and alcoholism which resulted in him tragically taking his own life. It has 50,000 streams and was played on Radio 1 and ‘Lorraine.' The song also encouraged listeners who’d had similar experiences to reach out and talk.
This feeds into Aymee’s musical mantra - to write honest music that anyone can access and relate to.
Aymee has a bunch of songs cooking and is set to release an LP in 2022.
