Amanda fell in love with music before she even began attending school. Her earliest influences, Madonna and Andrew Lloyd Webber, would be her inspiration to make her mark in the music industry years later. She taught herself how to write poetry and lyrics while attending Cincinnati's School for Creative and Performing Arts in the 7th grade. There she was also introduced to hip-hop, while lending her voice to the city's best children's choir, the same choir recording artist, Nick Lachey sang with years before. From middle school to today, Amanda has performed on some of Cincinnati's greatest stages, including The Arnoff Center, and music hall with Eric Kunzel and the Cincinnati Pops. In high school Amanda attended a local public school, where she joined the performance choir. She received excellent scores in solo and ensemble competition. She also recorded her first song, "Tears" which earned her the honor of being named "Best female singing voice" in her graduating class. Always writing and recording, Amanda has developed a unique style and sound that can only be described as "Hip-POP"! She is currently finishing her rough demo; that has been highly praised by the community, as well as radio and record label executives.
