Amanda Mora / Bio

Following the momentum of two critically acclaimed records that earned the attention of public, community, and college radio stations throughout the United States and Western Europe, Amanda Mora has been steadily working for her dream. She was selected as a finalist as a Mountain Stage New Folk Finalist, had her music placed on PBS's RoadTrip, and shared the stage with many of her folk heroes. In 2010, Amanda Mora helped spearhead a visionary, zero emissions, bicycle/music tour across 12 countries of Western Europe. Amanda Mora was a lead organizer and one of five headlining acts that cycled over 6,000 miles and preformed over 100 shows at some of Europe's largest festivals as well as self organized, grassroots community events. The tour was collectively know as The Pleasant Revolution and featured an audience-driven 1200 Watt bicycle powered PA system.

Mora has become known for her quick witted and openhearted shows with the dynamic cellist, Mollie Rose. A renowned studio artist in Austin, TX, Rose is a classically trained musician at the cutting edge of re-inventing cello's place in popular music. As a duet, Mora and Rose deliver a curative dose of driving bluegrass adventure, a twist of irony and self deprecating humor, a sprinkle of sassy jazz, a few strange diminished chords and fantastical characters, some brokenhearted rockers, cinematic dramas, anthems of redemption and hope, and of course, your feel-good-toe-tapping love songs. With a lyrical and musical sensibility that ignites the imagination and assumes the listener’s intelligence, they will captive your attention, and reward you with songs that continue to unfold, the deeper you listen.

After nearly two years of careful crafting, the much anticipated sophomore record is here; Awaiting The Sound. Produced and recorded by Amanda Mora, this album explores new musical horizons while maintaining the same imaginative writing and colorful instrumentation that made her debut album, The Ribbon, so memorable. The brilliant cast of musicians include special guests include Eliza Gilkyson, Phoebe Hunt, John Inmon, Jonathan Doyle, Jill and Doc Jones, and many more. Find out more at www.amandamora.com
