Amanda Nagurney CD Review
Buffalo has been keeping a secret . . . and Nashville just found out.
In 2008, Amanda Nagurney released a six track CD, entitled, Gettin Out Of This Town. Raised in Western New York, Amanda began vocal lessons at the age of seven. It became apparent early on, that she possessed a most precious gift. Performing and singing is what Amanda adores and has proven just that by defying genres such as: Pop, Country, Western, Blues, Folk, Christian, Jazz, Motown, Broadway and Classical.
The roots of country and western are heard in the first track, Gettin Out Of This Town blending folk with electric guitar and percussion creating a rock-pop sound. The lyrics speak of her travels to Nashville, hoppin’ in her Chevy, grabbing her gee-tar while she sings: Nothin’s gonna stop me in my cowgirl boots. This tune will immediately get you out of your seat and onto the floor.
Goodbye Doesn’t Mean Forever is a ballad. There is a background country flavor in the slide that mimics her soaring vocals. Lyrically, this is unconditional love. Amanda brings a fresh perspective vocally to a somewhat somber salutation. The listener is reminded that one is capable of holding another within no matter where one travels while Rock That Country jolts you alive and gets you up and shakin’. Guitar riffs and percussion can be caught alongside undertones of R&B. Grab your boots because you will need them for this tune.
Don’t Ask Me to Love You brings one back to eighties pop blended with a jazzy backbeat. The vocals are perfection as Amanda sings of the innocence of love and the giving of oneself, being guile, not naïve and the expectations of others by singing: ’ll dance with ya baby, but don’t ask me to love you.
There is a lovely slide intro in Never Break My Heart with soft-spoken vocals from Amanda. This can be attributed to a lover, a friend, one who is true and that one person that shall always be by your side no matter what.
One compilation on this CD does indeed stand out from the rest. The sheer force of vocal delivery causes one to forget of the sullen undertones lyrically. Four artists are responsible for the creation of this song: Amanda Nagurney, Lenny Revell, Jeff Ullsperger and Tammy Beal. I had the rare treat of seeing this performed LIVE by Nagurney on vocals and Revell on piano with a full band backing them both. On this CD, Amanda performs flawlessly. Instantly, Streisand and Celine Dion are brought to mind. Amanda is a songbird. She belts this tune out from within her spirit while softly bringing you into an embrace through her words. Just for a Moment is an instant hit.
Please visit her myspace and her personal website: and
Amanda is constantly performing – get out and see her LIVE, that is, if you can catch her before she gets out of this town.

Raised in Western New York, Amanda Nagurney began vocal lessons at the age of seven. She released a six track CD, entitled, Gettin Out Of This Town in 2008.

The first track lays down country and western roots. "Gettin Out Of This Town," blends folk with electric guitar and percussion creating a rock-pop sound. The lyrics speak of Amanda's travels to Nashville and this tune will get you out of your seat and onto the floor when you hear: "Nothin's gonna stop me in my cowgirl boots."

"Goodbye Doesn't Mean Forever" is a ballad that has a background country flavor in the slide that mimics the soaring vocals. "Rock That Country" is a track that jolts you alive. Guitar riffs and percussion can be picked up alongside undertones of R&B. "Don't Ask Me To Love You" takes the listener back to 80's pop which then gets blended with a jazzy back beat. The vocals are perfection as Amanda sings: "I'll dance with ya baby, but don't ask me to love you." In "Never Break My Heart," there is a lovely slide intro with soft-spoken vocals.
