She’s radiant, youthful, and won’t let anything get in the way of her and her dreams. She is Country music artist Amanda Lamb.
The 20-somehting California based singer/songwriter has been performing since age 6, and by age 14 she was writing songs during math class to pass the time. Amanda thrives on personal experience for her writing, and says that although she is young she has never felt limited in terms of what she can write songs about.
Amanda’s music has grown with her as she explains; “When I was 15 I wrote a song called Banish Love…about how ridiculous high school romance drama seemed to me. Right now I write about looking for, finding and losing love…” While Amanda knows that her music will change and mature as she does, she is in no rush to get there as she is living in the moment and embracing who she is as an artist today.
From a very young age, Amanada has dealt with Type 1 Diabetes, a disease that affects asmany as 3 million Americans. Given this issue is something so close to her, and after dealing with some heavy complications because of it, she decided to write a song to inspire people like herself who need to go the extra mile just to make it through each day. The song, titled “Something in the Blood”, is heartfelt, comforting and inspiring. “I hope that people who suffer from any condition which just makes life difficult will gain strength from the lyric line “I’m made a little different but I’m not broken.” For so many of us, there’s a battle to stay alive, or to live a full life, but we somehow find the strength, and that’s what I wanted the song to reflect,” Amanda shared.
Amanda’s strength and fearlessness in sharing her story is admirable and goes to show that with just a bit of courage one can overcome life’s struggles. You can keep a look out for Amanda this Sprig and Summer if you're in the California area as she will be touring. This Fall, she plans on releasing an EP where she unleashes a darker, more moody Amanda Lamb.
