Flame-haired Australian Amanda Easton is a powerful live performer who with her band is often described as the new Millennium’s Blondie. It's pop that sometimes sounds jazzy and while it sounds commercial it is produced with the passion of an indie. She performed with Powderfinger at the 1999 ARIA AWARDS, again with Candice Alley at the 2004 ARIAs, has been touring with multi-platinum artist Wendy Matthews and is now working with rock legend Richard Clapton.
Amanda has released her debut album and two of her self-penned singles that have both charted in the top 10 of the Australian independent (AIR) charts. Her singles have received airplay on major commercial radio and TV including NOVA 96.9, 2Day fm, Rove TV show, the Today Show, Channel V, MTV and regional radio stations Australia-wide. The ‘Liquid M’ remix of her single ‘Falling In’ was a rotation favourite on Sydney’s NOVA 96.9fm.
“….a dynamic slice of guitar driven pop…. The power of this track lies with Amanda's impressive vocals which are backed up with a catchy as hell beat and an instantly remembered chorus..pop with substance...offers an edge to anyone fed up with manufactured pop.” MUSIC NETWORK MAGAZINE, reviewing Amanda’s single ‘Celebrity’
“A star-filled night... add the very talented Amanda Easton and you would believe that one of those stars had fallen right on the deck … a cross between Natalie Imbruglia and Suze de Marchi.”…Mary Jo, Wentworth Courier.
“Amanda wraps her rich tones around a song…that slinks in the room, and rubs itself up against your leg in a delightfully shiver inducing manner… a Pat Benatar of our very own,” ..Ross Clelland, Drum Media.
Amanda lives and breathes her music and walked away from a highly paid jet-setting corporate marketing job at one of the world's biggest companies - Microsoft - to follow her passion. But definitely no regrets! Now she's well-known as one of the hardest working independent artists in Sydney. Amanda is also a dedicated live music promoter, her latest effort being the hugely successful ‘PopTarts’ showcasing up and coming female pop talent.
Amanda has played major venues all over Australia including Fox Studio’s City Live as well as The Metro in Sydney and Jupiter Casino’s Mercury Lounge in Melbourne and performs regularly with her original live band. Her vocals have also featured on other people’s recordings, in areas as varied as ABC Radio National and Bardot’s (PopStars) ‘Poison’ guide track.
Amanda spent 16 months singing and songwriting in Japan. She also has two of her self-penned songs on the soundtrack of Australian rock-n-roll road movie ‘Second Best bed’ planned for production later this year. Amanda is slated to play the lead role. She has just released her debut album.
