Amber Joy Poulton Biography

Amber Joy Poulton

Share |

Genre:

In 2009 Amber Joy Poulton was selected as a Top 10 Grand Finalist in Tamworths’ world famous Toyota Starmaker competition.  It didn’t take long for Amber Joy Poulton to make her mark in the country music industry.  By January 2010, she had achieved her childhood dream of performing on the same stage as the great Kenny Rogers.  She had the privilege of being selected as the support act at The Adelaide Festival Centre for the great Kenny Rogers .  Add to that, support acts for Melinda Schneider, Brian Cadd and Russell Morris.  What a year!

This years Tamworth Country Music Festival was very different to 2009, when she appeared as a Top 10 grand finalist.  At the 2011 festival, she performed to sell our crowds as Loretta Lynn in the tribute show Queens Of Country and performed each day on stages around the festival, singing the songs from her award winning album ‘Taking Goodbye’, Co-written and produced by TIARA Best Male Vocalist, Doug Bruce.

Amber Joy has had major success on the airwaves with her debut album.  She made her mark national wide by hitting the Top 30 of the Australian Country Music Charts with first single, Rising Star and the beautiful duet with Doug Bruce, Close Enough (No. 13).  The touching ballad, Good Old Fashioned Days is still receiving radio play around the country (since May 2010) and has also received the award for SA APRA Traditional Country Song Of The Year for 2009.  She followed that award up with another in 2010 with title track, Taking Goodbye.  Amber Joy was also presented with the SA Achiever Award for recognition around Australia in 2009 with her music. Previous release, Break Even spent over 15 weeks in the charts and made Amber Joy her first Top Five Hit and now she has her fingers crossed for current release and title track Taking Goodbye which is currently sitting at number 25 in the top 30,will bring her just as much success.

That’s four Top 30 hits and two songwriting awards and counting!

Also creating a buzz has been Amber Joy’s tribute show, Honky Tonk Angels – The Story Of Loretta Lynn & Friends.  Her tribute show, tells the tale of the first queen of country music, Land her amazing career, friendships and how she paved the way for women in country music and in life.  The show has toured Australia, performed to a crowd of over 900 people at The Gympie Muster last year and has SOLD OUT at the Adelaide Fringe Festival for the second year in a row.

Working hard at making her mark in the entertainment industry and having an enthusiastic attitude towards performing runs in the family and Amber has seen it all first hand through her auntie’s career, Australia’s favourite daughter, Julie Anthony.

Since her breakthrough into the country music scene Amber Joy has been in high demand and has made appearances at the following country music festivals, Tamworth, Mildura, Boyup Brook, Katherine Muster, Barmera, Blanchetown, Semaphore, Murraylands and the SA Stampede.  Not forgetting a very successful Gympie Muster alongside Jimmy Barnes, James Reyne, Troy C.D, McClymonts, Sara Storer and supporting Kenny Rogers, Melinda Schneider, Brian Cadd & Russell Morris on their Adelaide tours.  Coming up in 2011, Amber Joy has been invited back to the Boyup Brook CMF for 2011, Barham CMF, Mildura and “all aboard” she’ll be performing along side Beccy Cole, Sara Storer, Gina Jeffreys, John Williamson, Catherine Britt, Amber Lawrence and more on the Cruisin’ Country ship.

There is no stopping Amber Joy, whether she’s dressed up as Loretta Lynn or performing her own songs straight from the heart.
