Amy attended a Jewish Sunday school, but she later shared that she didn’t like the school and didn’t learn anything while attending it. However, she claimed that she went to a synagogue at least once a year, out of respect for Yom Kippur.

Her parents divorced when she was nine years old, and she went on to live with her mother, while on weekends she would stay with her father and his girlfriend.

Interested in jazz music and influenced by her father and uncles, Amy turned to music when she felt left out and in trouble. She dropped out of high school at 16 years old, but she already had some experience as a musician, having sung in a rap group and a band.

In 2002, she signed a contract with Simon Fuller’s 19 Management, who helped develop her singing talent. She performed regularly at the Cobden Club, and worked on her own music.
