Born in Towson, MD and raised in the tri-state area of VA, MD, and Washington DC. Amanda Lee has minimal experience beyond the east coast realm of life. Her aching and yearning for more is apparent in her music and may just be the drive that takes her to far places.
Though one may hear some pop and folk sensibilities in Lee's songs, the "pop" or "folk" category do not quite pinpoint her sound. Her dynamic voice takes you on a ride; it calms you like a lullaby then lifts you high into a launching soar. Whatever genre it is, Lee's sound is soothingly addictive.
Amanda was the 1st place winner of the KBN's Talent Competition in 2002, where she met her bass player (now bandmate/husband), placed 2nd in the first annual Kollabortion DC competition in 2010, has played all over the DC area including notable venues such as Jammin Java, Gibson Guitar Showroom, Iota Club & Cafe, The Hamilton Live, and her YouTube videos have accumulated over 475,000 views.
With the ambition of wanting to put her music in people's hands, Lee partnered with Pledge Music to campaign the funding of her first EP. With much success, her fans prevailed and thus Lee was able to start recording with Kevin Gutierrez at Assembly Line Studios in Vienna, VA. Lee co-produced the album with Gutierrez and her bass player, Posido Vega. The album was released digitally in April 2011.
