Isle of Wight singer-songwriter, Amy Jolliffe, encapsulates the sounds of summer with her newest single, Bud Tree.

Released earlier this month, the song is inspired by Amy’s hometown, Ryde, as well as the 1960s’ psychedelic-folk sound. 

Bud Tree is a follow up to Amy’s debut single, Don’t Ever Leave Me Baby, which was released in June last year.

The 21-year-old has performed at the Isle of Wight Festival and Strings among other venues and, in 2023, competed for the Wight Noize main stage competition.

Speaking about the release of Bud Tree, Amy said: "The music I write is often influenced by my surroundings.

"Bud Tree is a summery song about innocent youth, friendship and hope for the future.

"It’s nostalgic and reminds me of my friends and family."

The song title is inspired by the song ‘Bud’ by Dorset-based singer, Fenne Lily.

Bud Tree by Amy Jolliffe is available to stream on all major streaming platforms.

It comes a few months after Amy met Grammy-award winner Olivia Rodrigo, when the Driving Licence star paid a visit to a pub in Yarmouth and stayed to see her play.
