Amanda was born in Spartanburg, South Carolina, a mid-size city that has produced many successful musicians, including The Marshall Tucker Band, Joe Bennett and The Sparkletones, and Marshall Chapman. She began singing before she could speak, and she began "making up" songs shortly after. At age 9, Amanda began writing her songs down, attempting to take on the real role of a songwriter. She sang in church and school throughout her childhood, and performed an original for the first time at age 13 at Lake Junaluska. In addition to choirs and chorus, Amanda was also the singer for her high school's Jazz Band, which opened her eyes to a whole knew world of music. Amanda graduated from the University of Florida (Go Gators), but could not deny her heart was in music. So, after much prayer and thought, she moved to Nashville to do her internship and get to know the city. Amanda is continually working towards becoming the best artist and songwriter she can be. Her music is influenced by many artists, including Tanya Tucker, Charlie Daniels, Hank Williams Jr, Janis Joplin, The Marshall Tucker Band, and Joan Jett. Her unique sound combines country-rock, southern-rock, a little blues and a lot of soul. Enjoy the music...and let us know what you think! After all, without fans, music wouldn't really go very far!
Amanda can be seen singing "He's Lookin' Better" in the early 2009 movie "Junkyard Dog". Amanda has been working with #1 writer, Kirsti Manna for Songwriter Girl Camp since 2008. She is also touring all over the US playing acoustic and full band gigs! Check out www.amandapagecornett.com for more!
