Who is Amy Gee?


Hey! I’m Amy, a Norfolk girl currently residing at the seaside!


I’m a huge music fan, my taste ranges from the most screamo metal to traditional folk and everything in between with my first loves being Britpop and Pop Punk. I have a passion for playing the “Spotify Game'' and am the annoying one who takes control of the music but doesn't let a song play for more than ten seconds because I’m so excited to show you the next one!




I go to gigs as often as I can and have watched bands up and down the country, everywhere from Middlesbrough right down to Portsmouth!


Alongside music I love running and have previously completed three marathons including London in 2017 and more half marathons than I can remember. It's not always the easiest hobby when injuries happen, everything aches or the weather is rubbish but it's my happy place, my time away from everything. I do my best thinking when I run, usually about how many calories the run is going to equate to and how much chocolate I can eat!


My other passion bordering on obsession is hedgehogs! Anyone who knows me knows me as the “Crazy Hog Lady” owing to my three pet African Pygmy hogs Squedgetable, Orinoco and baby Ethel. They might be an usual pet that aren't straightforward to care for but they have the best, most unique little personalities and are more than worth the extra effort!


I also support Ipswich Town who are still the “Pride of Anglia” whatever league they're in!
