About Amanda Mabro
A world-class performer with a vivacious presence and Montreal flair, Amanda Mabro delivers what pop music has been waiting for: a talent that fuses a dedicated artistic sensibility with an accessible sound and a spectacular live show. A sassy songstress with a multicultural background, Amanda has an impressive musical resume that boasts shows in North America and Europe, performances alongside international stars and high praise from music critics. Her latest project, the Wine Flows and Red Rows sister EPs, present her gorgeous larger-than-life vocal prowess and ability to deliver inspiring and original songs.
The Red Rows/Wine Flows project, two distinct EPs released in 2008 and 2009, highlight Amanda’s diverse range of styles and influences. Red Rows gives a feisty wink to her jazz/cabaret beginnings while Wine Flows boldly marches forward and heralds the future of pop music as being fresh, creative and evocative. Amanda’s voice plays among the guitar, drums, piano and violin, weaving the elements together, tying them into modern tales of beauty and hope. CBC has touted Red Rows as being a “groundbreaking piece of pop music” and music columnist Duke Eatom has declared Amanda “ a force to be reckoned with.”
Amanda has been astounding music critics since day one. Her debut album, 2006’s Superwoman In The Making, put her on the map with high-energy performances across Canada. Critics quickly took notice and heaped glowing praise on the newcomer with impressive reviews from various media outlets such as Chart, CBC and the Montreal Gazette. Amanda has toured Canada several times, showcased at festivals such as NXNE and the Toronto Jazz Festival and shared stages with Celine Dion, Arcade Fire, Jorane, Vanessa Carlton, Raul Midon and Franz Ferdinand. Two rousing performances in front of 20,000 spectators at the 2008 Montreal International Jazz Festival prompted the sale of 300 albums in 30 minutes. Her first-ever French language release, “Nuit Blanche,” was turned into a stunning Tim Burton-esque music video created by Montreal/Hollywood concept artist Meinert Hansen and is in rotation on Much Music Canada. Sold-out shows, a loyal international fan base and invitations to perform overseas prove that Amanda has the makings of a world-class artist in the evolving music industry.
