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, "making up" songs shortly after, and at age 9, she began writing her songs down! She sang with church, school, theatre, performance groups throughout her youth, and performed an original for the first time at age 13 at Lake Junaluska. Amanda started diversifying her style by singing in 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, she moved to Nashville, finishing her last semester in Nashville! 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 also worked with #1 writer, Kirsti Manna as a staff member for Songwriter Girl Camp.
In 2013, Amanda was fortunate enough to have Tim Lawter (former Marshall Tucker Band bass player) & Rock n Roll Hall of Fame drummer Artimus Pyle (Lynryd Skynryd) play shows with the Almost Angels Band!
Most recently, she has been writing for her first full album, which includes writing in famous Muscle Shoals with incredible musicians/writers Spooner Oldham, Mark Narmore, & Carl Holder!
