Amanda Somerville / Bio

Considered a Metal Diva in the European symphonic metal scene, Amanda Somerville is a singer-songwriter originally of the pop / rock vein of music who's been roughed up at the edges with a razor blade, painted over the scars with makeup and is now sweetly taking revenge out on the microphone. Since 2000, the Michigan-born songstress has divided her time between the US and Europe, primarily Germany and the Netherlands. Her catalogue of projects, guest appearances and live shows garnered up till now with bands like Epica, Kamelot and Avantasia is an impressive body of work that gives her more credibility in metal circles than she ever bargained for. Her most recent endeavors include touring with renowned artist Ian Gillan (Deep Purple) and a duet album entitled Kiske-Somerville with metal legend Michael Kiske (Helloween).

Amanda's sound is eclectic yet particular, sweet yet raw and commercial yet conventionality-challenged. Singer-songwriter metal with some bling. If names are what you're after, think of Annie Lennox, Doro and Sade thrown into a blender and whipped into an emotional, frothy concoction. Just watch out for those razor blades. Prost!
