Amanda is the most valuable artist I've had the pleasure to work with for 7 years. She is respected across the country, collaborating on many projects through the years from artist development, songwriting, vocal production, industry events, as well as music publishing endeavors. Just amazing.
My daughter has worked with Amanda for close to 2 years now and it's amazing how far she has come in such a short time. She is a true artist who lends credibility to her industry. She ALWAYS has my child's best interest in mind from a vocal and personal development standpoint. She does this for all the right reasons!! She has our complete trust!
I've been working with Amanda for six years! She's an incredible mentor and I continue to learn so much from her. She is simply the best.
Working with Amanda in the studio is a pleasure. She is very professional, has a great ear, and makes it enjoyable by being awesome!
I have worked with Amanda, multiple times, in the studio. She's a great vocalist and has a work ethic people look for and love. She is also a brilliant vocal coach and vocal producer in studio. I love working with her and you will too!
I've had the pleasure of working with Amanda quite a bit. She has an amazing voice and ear. She never misses a thing and will stay on a project until it's perfect. One of the best!
Interview with Amanda Earhart
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I grew up in a musical family, making music across three generations, so I was literally raised on the stage. From the age of 12, I was hired for my first regular gig and I knew performing was my life's purpose! My daily life has always and will always be music. It all began at age 3 when I started playing piano and by 7 yrs old, my daily routine consisted of training in voice, followed by dance and acting shortly after. My recording career began when I was 12, and I was performing 5 days/week. I started arranging vocals when I was 14, and had over 1,000 shows under her belt by the time I was 16. At 19, I was playing weekly in the night clubs, and I continued to hone my craft (and make a living) for the next several years, singing virtually every genre and traveling all over the country as the lead singer for one of the most sought-after 12-piece cover bands. Outside of my career as a singer, songwriter, I have also had the pleasure of coaching and/or producing hundreds of artists over the last decade.
