Name: Amanda Brown
Sounds Like: Sara Bareilles
Why we’re fans: She brings honesty in her music and her voice so versatile she can adapt to pretty much any sound.
She’s creating her own form of longevity:
My focus right now is to create music that I’m proud of. I’m honest and real to who I am and what I enjoy. As long as I’m doing that I’ll always being creating. In that regard there is longevity.
She wants people to have an opinion on her music:
I just really want them to listen to it and get whatever they need to get from it. My focus right now is to create something. I know there are going to be people out there that are like, ‘this is not for me’ and I know there are going to be people out there that might love it. I don’t have a plan in that regards— if they like it they like it, if they don’t they don’t.
