About Amanda Crespo
When I was around ten years old, I made a list of things I wanted to do during my lifetime. The first thing on that list was to learn how to play guitar and to write songs. I started taking guitar lessons during high school and wrote my first song when I was sixteen. Over the past decade, I have written sixty-seven songs and performed them for anyone who would listen (and some who wouldn't!). While I'm a huge fan of all kinds of music - blues, bluegrass, alternative, folk, hip hop - I love writing pop songs with a catchy tune and a good story line.
After graduating from the University of Nebraska - Lincoln and then working for four years at Southeast Missouri State University, I moved to Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, to pursue a Master's degree in Music and Culture and I will be graduating in June 2010. My first demo CD was released in November 2009 and I am incredibly excited to finally hear my songs in full production.
