Over the last few years, Amy Shark has catapulted herself from the status of aspiring musician to one of Australia’s most inspiring musical exports.

Releasing her first single back in 2014, and rising to fame with ‘Adore’ in 2016, Amy Shark has managed to peak near the top of both the ARIA charts and triple j’s Hottest 100, turning her into a massive success across the board.

Currently nearing the end of a massive Aussie tour, there’s no denying just how popular this Gold Coast muso has become in just a matter of years.

To celebrate one of the most beloved Aussie musicians of the last few years, we’ve decided to take a look back at her ten most successful tracks. Using a mixture of information from Spotify streams and Last.fm charts, we’ve compiled a list of Amy’s biggest tracks, according to the music-loving public.
