Amanda Fama is a 25-year-old singer-songwriter from New Jersey currently living in Brooklyn, New York. She has a passion for songwriting and excels in the acoustic pop/ folk genre. With meaningful lyrics, she provides her listeners with a storytelling experience enhanced by unforgettable melodies and catchy instrumentation.
Amanda's dad taught her how to play guitar when she was 12 years old, and she hasn't put it down since. While growing up, she performed in multiple talent shows, open mic nights, acoustic showcases and fundraisers throughout the Tri-state area, and continues to play music in various venues throughout New York City.
The songstress has a catalog of over 100 original songs, and the collection keeps growing. In 2013, she released her first album, Here to Stay. It was quickly followed by her single "Play" in 2014, and her EP I'm the Addict in the beginning of 2016. These works were mainly inspired by love, lust and heartache.
Amanda's newest record, Disaster in Blue, explores the newfound thoughts, emotions, and relationships she experienced during her groundbreaking first year living on her own in New York City.
She co-wrote the record with Adam Ollendorff, and recorded it at Drum Farm Studio in Menomonie, Wisconsin. The record was produced by Adam Ollendorff and John Richardson, and is available in iTunes, Spotify, and Amazon Music.
Although it falls under the acoustic pop/ folk genre, Disaster in Blue features a wide variety of sounds ranging from acoustic songs with a country/ folk accent to full band tunes with piano and saxophone.
Amanda will continue writing new music and hopes to someday write songs for multiple artists while simultaneously pursuing her own dreams of becoming a successful singer-songwriter and performer.
