Listen to Amanda Thorpe
At only 17 years old this new aspiring artist is rapidly becoming one of the most sought out voices in the Singer/Songwriter genre. Starting to sing and write at the age of 8 she quickly realized her passion for music and began performing at every opportunity. Her love and respect for music has quickly grown into an obsession. Amanda plays an array of instruments which include the Electric Bass and Violin. Picking up her brothers acoustic guitar changed the way Amanda thought about creating music. She learned some basic chords which allowed her greater freedom to create melodies and lyrics. By creating her own songs, she was able to focus on her own musicality and style. Since then, Amanda’s style has transformed and developed into a bohemian sensibility with undertones of teen angst layered with an edgier folk-rock sound. A few years ago she began to exhibit her talent at open mics and soon got raves for her mature lyrics that are sung with beautifully haunting and ethereal vocals. Filled with brooding angst, her songwriting reflects and weaves layers of teen struggles, politics and strong commentary on her past and current relationships. Amanda takes inspiration from artists such as Tori Amos, Fiona Apple and Sufjan Stevens. Amanda has also been heavily influenced by her families heritage and love of Celtic music both traditional and contemporary. A songwriting machine; with over 100 songs written and composed, she has received resounding accolades on the coffee house circuit. Her depth as a songwriter and her knack for infectious and catchy melodies continue to grow and impress. Amandas serious drive and determination has made her one of the hardest working unsigned teens in the region. After high school, Amanda would like to become a full time songwriter, writing songs for other artists as well as for films and television. Amanda was the winner of the 2007 Push/Play Original Music Competition that was sponsored by Pulse Weekly and the Allentown Fair.
