AMANDA - dynamic female vocalist
Amanda was born and raised in Luton, Bedfordshire, and was only 15 years old when she began her career singing in local bands and theatres. After leaving school she was accepted as a student at the prestigious Italia Conti Academy where she studied all areas of the performing arts.
She secured a 4 month contract to sing in Greece where her fabulous, versatile and powerful voice attracted a lot of attention. This led to her being asked to join George Gakis Julie Massio and the Trouble Makers as a session vocalist to help them promote their album, staying with them for the next 4 years, touring and working on Greek Tv and radio.
On returning to the Uk Amanda began to carve a career for herself, performing at corporate and celebrity functions at many well known venues up and down the country, including The Pheasantry, Battersea Barge, The Dorchester and Cavendish hotels, to name but a few.
Amanda's wonderful voice has secured her work far and wide. She has travelled all over the world, performing to thousands of people on board some of the top cruise ships for P&O, Cunard and Fred Olsen as either the resident vocalist with the show bands or as part of a duo and also being in high demand with her solo one woman show and has flown around the world performing her tributes to some of her favourite female artists.
This very talented woman is also a professional song writer and has several releases with Dispatch Records which have shot to the top of the dance charts. She continues to collaborate with producers, nationally and internationally, on a wide range of projects for the dance club scene.
One of Amanda's great passions is teaching her craft and passing on her wealth of knowledge and experience to her students. As well as vocal enhancement, her classes include confidence building and performance techniques.
Amanda's 'power house' voice can lend itself to swing, jazz, Latin, blues, pop, house, dnb, and musical theatre, thrilling audiences night after night with her stage presence And cheeky one liners. She never fails to deliver, carrying her audiences along with her on a journey of sparkling music and chatter, leaving them wanting more.
