Rising singer and songwriter Amanda Pollard is no stranger to music. Singing since she learned to speak, Amanda was formally introduced to music as a child and found her passion for performance while attending Northwest School of the Arts in Charlotte, North Carolina. She majored in vocal music becoming a classically trained first soprano and combines her impressive classical training with extensive jazz and musical theater techniques to create a dynamic range of vocal abilities.
With an all-American, fun and flirty style, this Southern glamor girl is more than meets the eye. Her work ethic rivals industry veterans and her dedication to her craft as an entertainer has garnered the respect and support of fans and fellow musicians alike. Amanda’s performance resume includes National Anthem performances for the Carolina Panthers, the former Charlotte Hornets and the Charlotte Knights along with countless performances throughout the Southeast where she receives high accolades for her lively and energetic performances. Amanda is a 2014 Southern Entertainment Award nominee for Performance of the Year and a two time Carolina Music Award winner for Best Female R&B Artist.
Since embarking on her musical journey, Amanda’s life has revolved around her music. Blessed with a natural gift of writing, Amanda began songwriting as a teen and hopes to capture the essence of human experience in her songs. “People get sad, get their hearts broken, and fall in love. But people also wonder what life is all about, they want to inspire others, they get happy, dance and have fun,” she said. “I want to capture all of that in my music and I’m inspired by everyone and everything around me.”
With hopes of becoming a major recording artist, Amanda is an active member of ASCAP and has the determination and talent to stop at nothing to make it to the top.
