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.
Born in Sweden, Amanda spent her childhood annoying the family with endless repeats of ABBA songs until she eventually moved to London, UK, to pursue a career in music. There she studied a BA in popular music performance and received formal training in many styles including funk, pop, blues and jazz. After graduating she was awarded a scholarship to complete an MA where she specialized in rock and metal under the tutelage of Dan Foord (Sikth, Krokodil).
Since graduating she has toured in Europe and the UK, honing her musical skills and versatility. 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 became one of the winners 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 she is the drummer of both electro grunge artist Nova Hall and singer-songwriter Amy Fitz Doyley, who in 2019 released their singles ‘Collateral’ and ‘Ears’ respectively. She also works with blues-rock band Deep Blue Sea who released their chart-topping studio album Strange Ways the same year.
In 2020 Amanda will be on tour with Ruf Records’ Blues Caravan holding down the groove for Jeremiah Johnson, Ryan Perry and Whitney Shay.
Amanda is a TRX Cymbals artist.
