American singer/songwriter Amanda Cunningham combines deep, soulful vocals with raw, gritty honesty that allow listeners to feel effortlessly understood and connected to the voice behind the music. In a mix of classic and contemporary pop and R&B, Amanda draws comparisons to Etta James, Sabrina Claudio, and Amy Winehouse. Amanda writes and co-produces all of her songs, drawing lyrical and vocal inspiration from the likes of Mariah Carey, Julia Michaels, Adele, Tori Kelly, and JoJo.
With the emotive, unfiltered singing talent and candid story-telling ability to express both vulnerability and strength, Amanda beautifully shares her struggles with mental health, heartache, working out who she is, and the struggles of young motherhood to listeners to say, “you are not alone, and it’s okay to not be okay sometimes."
HIGHLIGHTS OF YOUTH
This song was me reflecting on my current friendships and how shallow they sometimes are and how people aren't there for you when you really need them. I was thinking about back in high school times when things were less fake and more real and generally more simple.
