Out of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, Amanda Bocchi emerges as an Americana neo soul songstress. Her songs combine musical elements from jazz harmony, hip hop rhythms, roots music, and an intoxicating soulful vibe to create a visceral sound Amanda calls-Americana Soul Flood. Her lyrics rush from the sweetness of motherhood to the death rattle of addiction. Her songs often change time or key suddenly following the intensity of the her lyrics. Organ Donor, Amanda’s upcoming sophomore album, is a memoir of her experience through heroin addiction and her transformation into recovery. Organ Donor is being recorded this Fall at Fainting Goat Studio in Bedford, VA and is expecting to be released Spring 2019. Cereal Box Murder, Amanda’s debut, was independently released in 2006.

Amanda is also a speaker, writer and podcaster. Her speaking and writing focuses around opiate recovery advocacy and personal growth. She is a host on the Kingdom of Rock podcast for DIY musicians which is centered around shaping musicians into successful music entrepreneurs. Amanda interviews best selling authors, legendary performers, business and marketing gurus and independent artists to increase dialogue surrounding feminism, music and entrepreneurship.
