Amy Jo announces release of her Caught On A Bad Day single on 23 June 2023 on Safe House Recordings

 
“Heartfelt as well as heart-breaking, Amy Jo has struck gold with this. Up there with the best from the UK Country scene in 2022.” Belles & Gals (The Home of Female Country Music). 
 
UK New Country singer, and multi-instrumentalist Amy Jo, is set to release her Caught On A Bad Day single on June 23rd 2023. The Morecambe Bay resident has been receiving rave reviews for her recent releases – “There’s something special about Amy Jo, who sounds like a Nashville-era Taylor Swift. One to watch for 2023” (Louder Than War) – and is on course to take her place amongst the finer echelons of British female-fronted contemporaneous country outfits such as The Wandering Hearts, Ward Thomas, and the Shires, who kick-started the movement almost a decade ago.
 
Caught On A Bad Day is a country-folk rocker that focusses in on a day when Amy Jo ventured outdoors “looking not so great” and ended up bumping into just about everyone she knew. ‘If only you’d seen me last Friday night/Red lipstick and a dress that fits just right’, she gently hollers – if anyone can gently holler, it’s Amy Jo – and one is reminded of the little things in life, the casual observations and quiet reflections that make up our days. Even the bad ones.

Caught On A Bad Day has been lifted from Amy Jo’s current Songs From The Bay EP release. As well as Caught On A Bad Day, the Songs From The Bay Ep also features Coming Close – a typically-wry reflection on what it’s like to always be the runner up, and  a co-write with Grant Black ((Van Morrison, Craig David, Run DMC, Sarah Brightman, Olly Murs) – February 14th, a cleverly-twisted and wistful rumination on the merits of Valentine’s Day, and the R ‘n’ B-tinged, Shoulder Pads, a generous ode to possibility, and Amy Jo’s “perspective on the good girl/bad boy romance trope.’
 
Along with the rest of the Songs From The Bay EP, Caught On A Bad Day, has been produced by Julian Hinton (Trevor Horn, Robbie Williams, Rumer) and Simon Bloor (Seal, Birdy, Will Heard).
