"from "The Battle of the Century - American Girl vs. American Idol (or pop art vs. pop tarte)""

“Amanda Kaletsky seems to have both nurtured an abundance of skill and talent (thanks Mom and Dad) while also remaining – in this day and age – remarkably free of the restraints and limitations that seem to bind so many performers of her generation or her gender... this is something different, a patch of hope in a sea of despair. She is young. She is able. She is cutting her teeth. She aspires to “cathartic” experiences and communicating with her audience. She bypassed CBGB’s and is scheduled to play The Bitter End. She is headlining at the Millennium Music Conference... She is actually talented. This time, the entertainment is more than just promotion, this time it’s for real. Amanda Kaletsky is irreplaceable.” - Margaret Fala, Intermixx Magazine

"World Cafe Live praise"

"Amanda Kaletsky is a fresh voice of a gifted performer who makes ya feel like you are part of her stage... a truly wonderful honest approach for a rising star. Amanda’s CD is titled Between You and Me and it seems it is between her and me when I hear it." - Kevin Madrishin, Production Manager for World Cafe Live

"Relix Magazine Review"

Amanda Kaletsky has the voice of a pop star, but the soul of Norah Jones-approved singer/songwriter. Her infectious number “Never Enough” finds a middle ground between New York’s homey downtown clubs and the polish of Top 40 radio. - Relix Magazine

"Coldplay Conquers Capacity Crowd in Hartford"

The night featured two opening acts, hip-hop, electronica soul collective Santogold and radio station contest winner Amanda Kaletsky. The latter was especially well received by the crowd during a five-song outing sparked by her finale "Please Forgive Me." - The Republican

"Roadie #42 Blog #19"

'In the hour I spend in Production today, a constant stream of crew saying, "Have you seen the opening act? She's amazing". Now all of the local opening acts have been good, but it's unusual to get such unanimous glowing praise from roadies. I understand her name was Amanda Kaletsky. Given that roadies are notoriously tough to impress, I guess I'd better check her out. Maybe you should too...' -

Jumping from guitar to piano and back, Amanda delivers songs that are tastefully built around passion and melody. Nurtured by influences such as Sam Cooke and Carole King, her introspective music ranges from sultry blues inspired love songs to power-driven pop hits, all carried by her emotional vocal performances.

Her music has been featured on MTV, ABC, NBC, and FOX, and along with her first EP, “Wait”, Amanda has sold over 2,000 copies and is in radio rotation from the Northeast to Hawaii. She was also recently hand-picked by Coldplay to open for the band in her home state of Connecticut at the XL Center.

Surrounded by a love of music at an early age, Amanda trained as a classical violinist from the age of four. At the age of 13, she broadened her focus by learning guitar and piano, and began developing her vocal skills with the nationally recognized Elm City Girls Choir. Armed with years of classical training and non-classical influences, Amanda eventually found a personal balance in singing/songwriting.

Amanda is currently working on a third, full-length release, while continuing to perform at a variety of venues in the Northeast. She has also sung the National Anthem for the New York Islanders, New York Mets, at Lincoln Financial Field, Madison Square Garden, and at other professional sporting events.
