I came across Amanda by chance and am so glad I did. Her highly skilled and emotional playing was complemented perfectly by her professionalism and dedication to her art. My many customers from all over the world all commented upon her music. I would willingly recommend her and would use her again and again."

"I hired Amanda to perform at my winery and was amazed at the relaxing and entertaining ambiance she was able to create. While very talented she exudes class and still can connect with her audience which from my experience in past musicians can be a task in itself. I would definitely recommend her for anything big or small. Thank you Amanda!"
