"Country Artist, Amanda Lamb, releases new single "We Were Here""

Los Angeles, CA (Top40 Charts/ LaFamos Press) Country artist, Amanda Lamb just released a new single, "We Were Here". The upbeat single marks her debut as a country artist, since making the move from the pop and AC genres early last year. "I've always been a country-girl at heart, and this is the first step to accepting who I am and wanting to share my stories," Lamb says about her new direction. "I grew up listening to country music. When I was a competitive horseback rider, my trainer would blast country as we tacked and untacked our horses. Those times are my fondest memories of that chapter of my life." "We Were Here" is now available on iTunes!

Produced by Nashville heavy-hitter Kent Wells (Dolly Parton, Reba McEntire), "We Were Here" explores the idea of taking risks, living loudly and unapologetically. At the tender age of 20, Amanda is able to give us a unique look into life from her point of view. Amanda reveals her emotional intensity in songs of yearning, heartbreak and courage. Her songwriting process includes working with accomplished collaborators, Bill Diluigi and Melissa Bollea of Rhyme Partners. Featuring a skillful collective of Music City players, Amanda's experience in Nashville is what she's been looking for all along. "I just love the vibe," she says of the famous musical community, "Nashville has such an appreciation for original music."

An Orange County native, Amanda has always sought to learn more and improve her music and sound. At a young age she took a trip to Nashville to work with vocal coach, Brett Manning (Taylor Swift, Hayley Williams), which helped her conquer her fears of performing live. She has since gone on to study with vocal coach Lis Lewis (Colbie Caillat, Rihanna) and teamed up with Cathy Lemmon of the Artist Development Network to further develop her artistry.

Amanda Lamb's talents have not gone unrecognized. In 2012, she was named Best Youth Artist at the Orange County Music Awards. Amanda is a true performer and has played a variety of stages. No matter how big or small, she is always amped to get on stage. Music isn't the only thing that drives her; she is a self-proclaimed yoga addict, an avid paddle boarder, as well as a diabetes advocate. She once opened for the Jonas Brothers at the "Rock For Diabetes" benefit concert, an event that was held at actor, Danny DeVito's house. The performance held special significance for her, as Amanda has lived with Type 1 diabetes since she was one.

The country songstress is driven and determined with an old-soul and a passionate sound to share. "Country music feels more comfortable than anything I have ever done," she says. "It feels like home." Be sure to download her new single, "We Were Here" available on iTunes.

Bio

Country music is a soundtrack of the south. With the artistry of vocalist and songwriter Amanda Lamb, the compass points to Southern California and the sun swept shores of Orange County. Amanda’s new single, “We Were Here,” is an invitation to a coastline drive and an exuberant nod to her West coast roots. Her wistful “Endless Summer” evokes a vivid panorama of rusted Woodies, shivering palm trees, abandoned surfboards and deserted cottages.  “Somewhere the surf’s always up,” confirms this California girl.  

Belying her 20 short years on this earth, Amanda reveals her emotional intensity in songs of yearning, heartbreak and courage. “Sometimes singing about things I have yet to experience, but I dream about,” she says. 

Recorded in Nashville by eminent producer Kent Wells (noted for recent work with Dolly Parton) the tracks feature a skillful collective of Music City players supporting Amanda’s warm, confiding voice. Amanda sang live in the studio, bouncing her musical ideas off of enthusiastic players employing organic instruments. “I just love the vibe,” she says of the famous musical community, “Nashville has such an appreciation for original music.”

Working with accomplished collaborators Bill Diluigi and Melissa Bollea boosted Amanda’s confidence as a songwriter. She says that her lyrical mission is “To take a cliché that you hear everyday and twist it to make it personal and universal at the same time.” 

Amanda Lamb discloses powerful truths in the song “Something in the Blood,” her personal homage to all of the inspirational people she has met who are living their lives with Type 1 diabetes, a condition that has been part of her reality since she was one year old. “The song is both literal and figurative,” says Amanda, “because there is strength, bravery and courage in my blood.” 

Growing up in Newport Beach, humming along to Dixie Chicks and Shania Twain on the radio, Amanda Lamb was entranced by the authenticity of country music. “The stories in these songs sounded real,” she says. When she began her personal musical journey, she recalls her grandmother making a perceptive insight. “She said, ‘I always thought you were more of a country girl.’” Recording in Nashville, she realized that her Grandmother had been right. “Country Music feels more comfortable than anything I have ever done,” she says. “It feels like home.”
