Hometown: Dallas, Texas
From an early age, pop country singer-songwriter Amanda Ryan has been immersed in music. Disciplined with years of intensive guitar and vocal training, Amanda wasted little time in recording her talents. Releasing her first EP on iTunes, ‘Just Me’ (2007) at the age of 16. Several songs from her striking debut caught the ear of music supervisors and show producers at the CW and MTV Networks, resulting in a half dozen key placements on multiple episodes of hit shows including: 90210, The Hills, and The Beautiful Life.
Soon after, Amanda’s second iTunes EP of well-crafted pop gems were released on ‘Escaping Australia’ (2009). Exposure via performance invitations and endorsement offers immediately followed. Appearances on Dish Network’s National Music Channel, YMCTV, and a popular RAWsession video garnered further acclaim. Endorsements from Elixir Strings, Blue Microphones and Breedlove Guitars were secured, with Breedlove presenting the talented young songstress with her own custom-designed, handcrafted guitar.
What’s next for this attractive young lady with gutsy guitar chops, stellar stage presence and melodic sensibilities? Amanda has recently been commissioned to compose and perform theme songs for a new feature film entitled, Grand Prix: A Winning Tale. Plus, recent high caliber co-writes with platinum LA producer Jim Huff (Joe Bonamassa, Jason Rowe), Nashville songwriters Gerald O' Brien (Martina McBride, Trace Adkins), Jane Bach (Reba McEntire, Tammy Wynette, Ray Price, Jo Dee Messina) and other exciting projects have her future looking supernova bright!
