Amanda describes her new music as loungey electronic pop, combining old fashioned melodies with post-modern sounds. Easton's third commercial release, the new 5-song EP 'Out of the Blue' was recorded in various studios in Sydney's Inner West by UK Music Producer Matt Sladen and was wholly financed by crowdfunding through Pozible.com.
Amanda has released two self-penned albums before this, with two singles from her self-titled debut earning Top 10 positions in the Australian independent (AIR) music charts. Her music videos and live performances have graced television screens on The Kerri-Anne Show, Bert Newton, Denis Drysdale Show as well as ‘V’ and ‘MTV’ and recently the Morning show.
She’s performed for the who’s who of Australian corporations and twice at the ARIA awards. She’s appeared onstage as backing vocalist for some of our best loved musical legends including Glenn Shorrock, Powderfinger, Marcia Hines, James Reyne and Vanessa Amarosi and has toured exensively with multi-platinum artists Richard Clapton and Wendy Matthews. Amanda continues to perform in venues around Sydney including regular appearances at The Basement at Circular Quay as well as the Taronga Zoo Twilight Series.
Some people might know Amanda as a ‘PopTart’ – as well as running showcases for females singer songwriters for almost 10 years, she produced and hosted her own 13 episode TV Series called ‘PopTarts TV’ for TVS in Sydney and Channel 31 in Melbourne.
