Amy Benedict is the singer and songwriter of Pottersfield with a unique style that blends EDM and Future bass music. She transforms her deepest emotions and painful experiences into meaningful lyrics and isn’t afraid to be vulnerable. She has made it her personal mission to make compelling music that helps others get through their toughest times and inspires healing. The name Pottersfield was chosen to reflect a communal place for the unknown, unsupported, and those who struggle to find belonging. 

She is originally from Fresno, California. After enduring an abusive marriage and divorce, alcohol abuse and PTSD crept in, and Amy was driven to music as healing. When asked about this transition, Amy says, “I started picking up my guitar and plucking away. That led to word-vomiting my feelings on paper and eventually the two merged and I wrote my first song.” She has since relocated to Nashville, Tennessee, where she makes music and works as a registered nurse.

Pottersfield’s music continues to find color and light in dark experiences. Deeply inspired by The Chainsmokers, Halsey, Slander, and Illenium, Amy has been collaborating with Nashville-based producer Ian Osborne to create a unique EDM/Future bass sound. Amy’s lyrics are deeply meaningful with an edge inspired by artists like Sia, P!nk, and Julia Michaels. With compelling lyrical storytelling, captivating melodic crescendos, and punctuating instrumentation, the music of Pottersfield is for the moments when you just want to dance and escape and for the moments when you need emotional support from music that deeply resonates with you. 

After suffering the loss of a friend, Amy wrote her second single “Empty Bottles” which reflects on the devastation and reality of addiction. It placed as a semifinalist in the International Songwriting Competition in 2019. Her latest single “Hours or Minutes” reflects on the ache and drag of depression. It won Honorable Mention in the Unsigned Only Music Competition in 2021.
