Detroit born singer-songwriter, Amanda Morgan released her first recording in 2010 at age 15. Her debut EP, "Land of an Endless Sea," was recorded at the famed Eastside Sound Studios in NYC, and produced by Grammy winner Fran Cathcart. That project went on to garner two number one positions on WDVDfm’s Radio Cafe indie poll for the songs “Just Wanna Know Why” and “Ten Steps Back,” both songs becoming “Most Requested Song in the State” in 2010 and 2011.
In 2012, Morgan recorded the single “Saturday in June” with Detroit Grammy winning producer David Feeny. The track featured Patrick Simmons of the Doobie Brothers on lead guitar, who held high praise for Morgan’s ability as a performer and for her future potential. In 2012, Morgan encountered her first experience with the Indie Music Channel Awards. Nominated in four categories, she was awarded Best Young Pop Artist and had the exciting opportunity to perform at the House of Blues Los Angeles during the awards show. 2012 also brought the return of the earlier recording “Ten Steps Back,” added to Delta Airlines In-Flight music programming, exposing her music to world-wide listeners.
In 2014, Morgan co-wrote and recorded “Lesson Learned” with Detroit producer Chuck Alkazian at Pearl Sound Studios in Canton, MI. Morgan earned four nominations from that project at the 2014 Indie Music Channel Awards and the win in the category for Best Female Pop Artist with her track “Falling.” During the awards show in Hollywood, CA, Morgan was honored to perform live at the famed Whisky a Go Go, receiving great listener reaction. 2016 brought her fourth recording project, "Perfect One," with a stripped down, acoustic sound, featuring the poignant title track original and two interpretive covers.
Morgan has been featured in numerous print and online articles, appeared live on Fox and NBC TV, interviewed and performed live on "Anne Delisi's Essential Music" broadcast on Detroit's PBS affiliate, WDET and performed at Michigan’s largest and most attended music and arts festival “Arts, Beats and Eats.” She has performed at AB&E in 2011, 2012, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019, the Hard Rock Cafe, Detroit, The Stars and Stripes Festival, the Best of the Valley Showcase at the prestigious Musical Instrument Museum in Phoenix, AZ and at the Four Seasons Hotel in Las Vegas, among many other venues. Although she has already experienced many successes in her young career, Morgan understands that it is a road that takes not just talent, but dedication, determination and drive. “I have no illusions about how hard it is to make it in the music business today and how much work it takes,” says the 25 year-old artist. “For me, writing, recording and performing are my greatest passions. I’m so fortunate that my music has already brought me so many amazing experiences, and I can’t wait to see what’s next!.”
A recent graduate of the University of Michigan, Morgan currently resides in the Detroit area. She spends her free time with her parents and friends and her two dogs, Daisy and Oliver.
