Amanda St John is a powerhouse singer and songwriter who is heavily inspired by soul, R&B and gospel music. Following in the footsteps of her idols Aretha Franklin and Etta James, Amanda (along with co-writer/guitarist Paul Tierney and co-writer/drummer/producer Michael Mormecha) travelled to the USA in May 2018 and made history by becoming the first independent Irish artist to record in the legendary FAME Studios, Muscle Shoals.
Gaining substantial interest in Ireland and the UK including extensive airplay on the BBC and RTE Radio 1 as well as reviews in Hot Press and The Irish Times, Amanda is known for her passionate and powerful live performances and is fast establishing herself as one of Ireland’s leading vocalists.
