You need to struggle for your art. At the end of the day, you forget the haters, the 'critics' and you write music only as you know how. This is the only way that you as a performer, singer, songwriter, and overall person can contribute to the universe. You have to be yourself. Amanda Zelina recently emailed us with her story. And after working on her album for nearly two years, she was kind enough to pass along her beautiful music. So without a doubt, we just had to mention it.
With a maturity and presence to her music way beyond her age, Amanda Zelina deserves to be playing to sold out venues across the US. To say that the delicacy of her sweet, touching voice and lyrics leaves me longing for more is an understatement. In Amanda Zelina we have a performer that deserves to be listened to. Over and over again. She will be touring in support of her album, "Love me 'Til I'm Me Again" up and down the left coast in November. Amanda Zelina is a rare, huge talent that will be blossoming and making essential music for all of us to enjoy for a long, long time.
