Amy says, “I’ve been listening to Sam’s music for a few years and really loved the song he did with Demi especially. My manager was playing a song in his office, and I heard it from the studio and was like who the hell is that, and he said, ‘it’s a Sam Fischer demo that he wants you on.’ I didn’t even think, I just said yes. The song is epic and I’m proud to add some Shark to it.“
