Amanda McCarthy is an award winning, multi-genre singer/songwriter from the greater Boston area. She is also available for hire to play cover based gigs. She recently released her long awaited debut EP, The Good, The Bad & The Awkward, and you can be on the lookout for her new EP to be released in Fall 2015.
You’ll usually find Amanda playing a solo acoustic set, or as an acoustic duo with brother/lead guitarist Mark McCarthy, but once in a while you may catch Amanda playing with a full band, or playing another instrument. (Piano, ukulele, or select percussion)
Although she will always sing the songs her fans have known since she was a teenager, Amanda’s also been shining light of a lot of newer original music moving in a new direction. Her sound and style centers around the pop genre, but each individual song combines elements from other genres including rock, alternative, country, indie and blues.
“With clever yet introspective songwriting delivered through a powerful voice and equally powerful guitar, Amanda has proven that she has the talent and wisdom to get onstage with the heavyweights and stay there.”
