Amanda Rogers

Since the late 1990′s, upstate New York native, Amanda Rogers has opened for some of the most acclaimed rock, emo, and jam bands in the industry. With her classical background, love for blues and pop, and admiration for the local hardcore/indie music scene, Amanda has been mixing things up and catching the attenion of many concertgoers around the world. After self-releasing several recordings, in 2003 Amanda released her album The Places You Dwell with Immigrant Sun Records, and began to experience a fast growing interest in her music. Amanda then began touring the U.S. and Europe, headlining clubs and indie venues herself, and went on to record her next album Daily News. After the release of Daily News she was catching the attention of many music industry folks and many songs from the album were placed in Independent films and Television shows including MTV’s The Real World, Made, and The Hills, as well as The Discovery Channel’s Dr. G.  Amanda returned  to Europe later that year with a massive growth in attendance within just a couple of months.
 Amanda then released an EP, appropriately titled Something Borrowed, Something Blue, containing new songs and breathtaking covers of songs by Radiohead and At The Drive-In which was listed in Esquire Magazine’s list of Best Cover Songs, played numerous shows in the States and two more tours in Europe. In Spring of 2008, she headlined another European tour with friends “The Sketchy Indians” backing her up in support of her highly anticipated album Heartwood which had the honor of being #81 on the International Top 100 charts. Many tours later, Amanda has kept busy with some secret recordings, guest appearances on friends albums, Recycle My Heart, lots of Touring with The Pleasants, and working on her upcoming 7th album, Hope From The Forgotten Woods which should be complete by Spring of 2011.  If you want to keep up with Amanda’s whereabouts with The Pleasants, check out their tour-dates at: www.thepleasantsmusic.com/tour
