Is it Nicole Kidman? Jessica Rabbit? That chick from the Spiderman Movie? Flame-haired Australian Amanda Easton is a powerful live performer and her music is described as the love child of Natalie Imbruglia and Shirley Manson. It's music produced with an indie passion but it's fiercely commercial. She performed with top Aussie band Powderfinger at the 1999 ARIA AWARDS and is currently touring with multi-platinum artist Wendy Matthews. She also recently performed with Top 10 Aussie artists Vanessa Amarosi, Marcia Hines, Shakaya and the UK's Gareth Gates.
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 has released two of her self-penned singles that have both charted in the top ten 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.
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 Studios City Live as well as The Metro in Sydney and Jupiter Casinos Mercury Lounge in Melbourne and performs regularly with her original live band. Her vocals have also featured on other peoples recordings, in areas as varied as ABC Radio National and Bardots (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.
Live performance is everwhere. Amanda and band play regularly at PopTarts - a showcase at The Empire Hotel, Annandale, Sydney. They recently toured Malaysia which was a very special moment!
