Artist - Amanda Duncan
Get the cd from CDBaby
After borrowing her uncle's guitar for a brief stint in high school, she soon realized that this whole music thing might just be more than a fling. She began writing songs about silly things at first, but as her musical understanding grew, so did her desire to really connect with people. She realized that if she was feeling strongly enough to dignify a situation with a song there must be others who could relate and benefit from hearing their own story. "There are so many songs out there that are reflective of negative issues of people's lives. I want to connect with the positive."
A primarily self-taught musician, she plays guitar, hand percussion, and most uncommonly, the mandolin. For those listeners looking for something refreshing, Amanda delivers. She infuses the pop country structure with a folkier sound than most current artists. But what really sets her apart from the rest is her dedication to simplicity and her traditionally acoustic sound, reminicent of the bluegrass style.
