Amanda’s playing style is identified by her solid groove, great tone and exceptional stage presence. With a love for performance and a wide taste in music she can quickly adapt to any musical situation and has worked with many artists across a broad range of genres.
Based in London, Amanda received formal training in many styles during her BMus, including funk, pop, blues and jazz. After receiving a scholarship, she also completed a master’s degree where she specialised in rock and metal under the tutelage of Dan Foord (Sikth, Krokodil).
Since graduating she has been busy doing live session work which has included touring in Europe and the UK. In 2017 she performed with Grammy Award winners Clean Bandit and toured with Dom Coyote's award-winning gig theatre Songs for the End of the World. During 2018-2019 she toured with the hit musical Rock Of Ages and in May 2019 she won 2nd place in the international drum contest HLAG.
Amanda has also had the great pleasure of recording with some fantastic producers and engineers including David Holmes (Kerretta, Jakob), Sean Read (Kevin Rowland’s Dexys), Steve Lowe (Elton John, Kate Nash) and James “Lerock” Loughrey (Skindred, Beverley Knight).
Currently studying with the renowned Ralph Salmins, Amanda can be found performing with solo artists and bands across the UK. She is one half of Deep Blue Sea's rhythm section, the drummer of electro grunge artist Nova Hall, and the drummer of singer-songwriters Low Totem and Amy Fitz Doyley.
