Welcome to my page. I hope you have time to take a look around.
'Out of the Blue' is my latest EP, released March, 2013. It's 60s-influenced, theatrical electronica pop I like to think of as old fashioned melodies with post-modern beats. It's my third commercial release and is the first in a series of three EPs. Press 'play all' for a quick little invitation to a special event - followed by the music video for the first single:
"Not for Amanda the little-girl-lost vocals which many female singers use and she doesn’t need to shout and bawl to get her point across.
Here is a singer who sounds strong, confident, sassy, sexy and in control of everything.
She takes you into that smoky club, complete with red velvet seats; she’s up on that stage and you’re hanging onto every word that she sings."
am a singer and
songwriter based in beautiful Sydney, Australia. I have released two of
my own albums so far and am now working on a series of three
self-penned EPs. I describe my style as theatrical electronic
and I just can't help writing about love because what else matters? I
was lucky enough to get a couple of top ten spots in the Australian
independent music chart for a couple of my early songs 'Celebrity' and
'Skin' as well as some radio and TV airplay (Nova FM Sydney, Rage on
ABC TV, Rove on Channel 9, Disney Channel and loads of stations in our
fabulous community radio network around Australia) for those and other
tunes. I've also toured my music throughout Western Europe and Japan.
When I'm not writing, recording and performing my own music I love getting involved in as many different kinds of musical projects as possible. I do a bit of dance (trance, house and happy hardcore DJ collaborations) as well as jazz, cabaret and a lot of pop, including a lot of tribute shows at venues like The Basement and events like Taronga Zoo's Twilight Series. I also front a function band, alongside the wonderful Jo Elms, called Dance Little Sister.
had a blast being a
backing singer for a lot of great artists including Powderfinger (2000
ARIA Awards), Candice Alley (2001 ARIAs), Marcia Hines, James Reyne,
Brian Cadd, Tim Freedman, Paul Capsis, Eric Weideman (1927), the late
James Freud (The Models) and regular local and international touring
with Wendy Matthews and Richard Clapton.
I also do a lot of songwriting and recording with other artists including DJs and dance music producers, which has produced some international releases.
Some people might know me as a PopTart - I worked with hundreds of fabulous singer-songwriters and bands for almost 10 years while running a weekly Sydney showcase night of the same name, promoting original female-fronted music acts. The live shows turned into PopTarts TV - a 13 episode series that ran on TVS in Sydney and C31 in Melbourne - I was host and Executive Producer. Well, you do need to have lots of fingers in lots of pies in this industry! Please visit the links to find out about other musical projects.
Anyway, thank you for visiting and please feel free to drop me a line.
