Amie Brûlée is a Ballarat based musician who studied at the University of Melbourne. Her musical adventures and influences range from classical to jazz, cabaret to blues, flamenco to funk (just to name a few), and she loves nothing more than finding a new way to interpret and old song. She usually sings and plays piano, but was recently spotted carrying a ukulele through Paris. Other eyewitness accounts list her playing trumpet in a London studio and double bass in a hillbilly band. She is constantly plotting new musical adventures and believes that music and stories are a fundamental part of human nature. Amie has PhD in French and Australian culture and wine, is a qualified French and music secondary teacher, and loves to blend stories, music, research and history into inspiring performances and workshops.
