Amanda Hardy is a singer/songwriter from Seattle, Washington. Her career began at the age of thirteen when she was discovered off the internet covering the Alice in Chains song ‘Brother.’ That video led to her playing the 2010 Layne Staley Tribute at the Showbox Market. After realizing that being on stage was her passion, she never looked back. Since then she’s been writing music and performing shows all over the Seattle area including opening for national acts Rob Zombie, Godsmack, Lacuna Coil, Sick Puppies, Anna Nalick, Styx and Queensryche.
More recently she has released a new album with Grammy nominated producer Warren Huart. She also spends much of her time writing new music with songwriters in LA. Amanda has been heavily influenced by the grunge era in Seattle and is putting a modern twist on her music to create a new sound. Amanda is also in Robert M. Knight’s Brotherhood of the Guitar. She was introduced to Yamaha Artist Relations who have taken her on as one of their artists. Amanda proudly plays Yamaha's newest guitar, the Revstar. Amanda is also associated with Ernie Ball strings.
