Amanda Shaw is a singer-songwriter who simply compels you to listen. With her evocative, distinct voice as described by one reviewer, her accomplished vocals will ‘mesmerize’ you. Throughout her childhood and teens Amanda performed in many shows and musicals. Having written songs since the age of 13, her vocal and song-writing style has been shaped from her earliest to present day musical influences, some of her main influences include Tori Amos, Kate Bush, Lucie Silvas, Delta Goodrem, Celine Dion, Trisha Yearwood, Faith Hill, Mariah Carey, and all styles of music from across a broad range of genres.
Amanda has recently had her song 'Travellin' played on UK TV Show 'Hollyoaks.' She also regularly writes with Maggie K De Monde. Maggie, – who had a hit in the 80’s with ‘No Memory’ for the band Scarlet Fantastic, was invited by the music college Amanda studied at (Sussex Downs College - FDA Music Production) to speak about her career in music as part of the course. They formed a co-writing partnership which resulted in Amanda’s tracks ‘Free Falling’, ‘Live For Now’ and more recently ‘Summer’s Day’ ‘Belle Epoque’ and ‘I Am Not You’ all of which are particularly pop-folk in style. Amanda is currently writing with country-pop writers based in the US, and is set to record a new album in 2015 (including new country-pop tracks she has been pitched by writers of a high calibre and who are receiving much radio play throughout America) with her acoustic band.
