MEET AMANDA CHERIE
Amanda Cherie is a genre-bending American singer and songwriter with a velvety, vintage Hollywood voice. Her storytelling songs may be described as three•minute dramedy plots that feature themes of freedom and radical self•acceptance.
Amanda’s vintage Hollywood-inspired style flowed from a unique childhood saturated with religion and 1920s to 1970s entertainment. Think Billie Holiday, backwoods gospel and bluegrass.
Between her fascination with golden-age entertainment and her craving for self•expression beyond the words she passionately belted in her church choir multiple times every week, Amanda began songwriting and pursuing a self-led study of literary devices to learn the craft of writing. She also learned to play piano, mandolin, bass guitar and acoustic guitar by ear, all of which accompany her eccentric lyrics and soulful voice.
Beyond the music, Amanda’s eclectic thirst for learning flowed into creative pursuits such as cooking, and academic quests, including a bachelor’s degree in business management and a master’s degree in an applied psychology. In fact, her love for the stage and passions for psychology, food, health and business converged in her TEDx talk on the possibilities of rethinking nutrition within the fast food service industry.
Whether listeners want to think, feel or simply escape, Amanda Cherie’s music melds the senses into a unique, deeply relatable listening experience.
