Amy Shark was born in Gold Coast, Australia in 1986. Her mother, Robyn, remarried and raised Shark on the Gold Coast with her stepfather David Cushway and a younger half-sibling. She is of Hungarian and English descent. She attended Southport State High School, where she performed in theatre, studied film, and played guitar in an all-female punk-band. She described her first group, Dorothy's Rainbow and Hansel Kissed Gretel, as "'quite thrashy', though it fell apart when its members splintered. 'I kept going, kept writing songs on my acoustic guitar'."

Shark entered a singing competition in 2007. She subsequently performed under various names, including Amy Cushway, Amy Billings, and as Little Sleeper. As Amy Cushway, she released two extended plays, I Thought of You Out Loud (2008) and Love's Not Anorexic (2009). In November 2009 she described her early material, "As much as I enjoy writing intricate acoustic ballads, there's nothing better than adding thunderous beats and raw energy to your set." She was living in Varsity Lakes in April 2010 and explained how, "[record companies] did not ask for demos now but just asked what her MySpace page was." She released two albums Broadway Gossip (2010) and It's a Happy City (2012). By December 2016 she was no longer using Cushway and material under that name had been deleted from her accounts.

In 2007 she met Shane Billings, a New Zealand-born Gold Coast resident; they married on 11 May 2013. Her written material is credited to Amy Louise Billings. The couple worked with the local rugby league football club, Gold Coast Titans: Shane as a financial manager and Shark as a video editor. She left the job in November 2016. Shane was also Shark's talent manager until she signed with Jaddan Comerford of UNIFIED Music Group. The couple are residents of Broadbeach Waters.

2015

Shark released her next self-produced single, "Golden Fleece", in October 2015, originally under the name, Little Sleeper. Chris Singh of The AU Review.com observed, "The song, powerful and penetrating in itself, is given visuals both understated and intense as Little Sleeper stands in darkness with her guitar and is progressively drenched in multi-coloured paint." It won Pop Song of the Year at the Queensland Music Awards in 2016, and Shark embarked on a nationwide tour supporting Sydney band, Tigertown in December. She received a grant from her local council, which allowed her to work with more popular producers.

"Adore" received significant airplay on Triple J, leading to a bidding war between major labels, which was won by Sony Music Australia. Shark signed with Wonderlick/Sony in November 2016. Two of her earlier singles, "Spits on Girls" and "Golden Fleece", were re-released by Wonderlick/Sony in 2016. "Adore" was listed at number 2 on the Triple J Hottest 100, 2016, behind Flume's "Never Be like You".

It received unpaid promotion by comedians, and digital radio show hosts, Luke and Lewis using posters, megaphone and a large home-made sign hung up next to the Fox FM Melbourne station logo.
