By age 15, Amanda Morgan had already recorded with Grammy-winning Producer, Fran Cathcart and NY Studio ace, Sean Burns. Her debut EP, "Land of an Endless Sea" garnered two No. 1 slots on WDVDfm's Radio Cafe, and two tracks became "Most Requested Song in the State."
At 17 she recorded with her second Grammy-winning Producer, Dave Feeny and released her single, "Saturday in June," featuring Doobie Bros. founding member, Pat Simmons on lead guitar. Her track, "More Like Crashing," released at the same time, won her the "Best Young Pop Artist" award at the Indie Music Channel Awards in Los Angeles, 2012. She performed at the LA House of Blues for the award show. In 2014, she won "Best Pop Female Artist" at the Indie Music Channel awards for her track, "Falling" and performed live at the historic Whisky a Go Go in Hollywood.
Amanda's music has been heard worldwide on commercial, public, terrestrial and web radio. She's performed at major festivals, world-class concert venues and countless jam sessions and open mics.
Amanda is also passionate about anti-bullying and she continues to help young people overcome this widespread problem by drawing attention through her music and appearances. She has just completed her third record release, is attending college classes full-time and spending time with her family and her rescue-dog, Bentley.

"When I first heard about Amanda Morgan I was excited about this new young singer songwriter. When I finally heard her sing, my excitement turned to admiration and esteem. Amanda is the real thing! I've always thought songwriting and performing were the most important elements in the evolution of a popular musical artist. To find both of these things, plus an amazing voice, in an artist so young...well,
this is what we’re always hunting for.”
