BIO:
Amanda's versatility in both singing, performing and composing is a result of 30 years as a professional musician. Daughter of Big Band vocalist, Nancy Carr and trumpet player, Nick Capezuto, Amanda began playing and singing at age 5. Early on she studied classical piano under the direction of Gerhardt Scherstedt at the South Shore Conservatory of Music and went on to the University of Lowell, College of Music under their scholarship program. Among her multi-styled performances and projects, she travels and sings internationally and is frequently featured with the Artie Shaw Band lead by renowned clarinetist Dick Johnson as well as featured with the Harry James and Glenn Miller bands. Amanda will be starring in and touring across the US in 2008-09 with her big band show called, "A Tribute to Peggy Lee and Benny Goodman."
Amanda's first jazz vocal recording, Carr Toons, was created as merely a demo, testing her pedigree in the jazz standard genre, but the recording impacted New England and abroad with her swinging version of the 1940's war song, "Don't Sit Under the Apple Tree" airing regionally in the popular and controversial GAP parody television commercial, Jordan's Swings.
In 1998, Amanda headlined at the EuroJazz festival in Ivrea, Italy where she shared the stage with International jazz artists James Moody and George Mraz. The National media attention she received prompted her to return in March of 99, recording and releasing, "LIVE IN SAN GIORGIO" that same year.
Her eclectic album credits include her composing and playing with the late great Dave Guard from the Kingston Trio and a spot on The Old Vienna Kaufeehaus album featuring New England's best folk singer/songwriters. Mary Travers from Peter, Paul & Mary describes Amanda as "a shining star among us."
Her television appearances include numerous Boston area features and a performance covered by National Italian television, RAI TRE. Under her married name, Amanda Pascarella, she has composed and performed award-winning music for 3 PBS documentaries, one of which was nominated for a National Emmy Award for network television. All this in addition to dozens of t.v. and radio commercials and live trade-show events.. She was awarded the 1999 Videography Award for excellence in music composition and 2 Telly Awards for excellence in Film and Video Production and recently recognized for her thematic score for the Emmy Award winning documentary "The Boston Red Sox: 100 years of Baseball History." As a frequent radio talk show guest, her voice and personality are no stranger to the airwaves. Amanda is also invited frequently to sing the National Anthem at Boston's historical Fenway Park and the Boston Fleet Center where she has taken center ice.
Amanda has recently composed 3 albums of children's songs along with a television show focusing all on safety for children which can be ordered on-line from her website at www.amandacarr.com. Amanda released her latest recording, "SOON" in 2007.

Amanda you are Classic!..You sing with JOY....I love your song choices...Hope to
I love Amanda's CD. The choice of using Nostaglic Pictures and real life graphics is a reflection of the content. Real and Personal. The sound has clarity and the packaging is tangible not flimsy!
The whole thing made a great impression for my first order.

Classy Technique
This is the second cd that I have heard from this artist.
The overall technique is very classy. The ballads are particularly effective. It reminds me of those cool '60's jazz singers. Give it a try, you will not be disappointed.
An artist to keep an eye on in the future.

Oh soo smooth
I play this CD a lot in the car and I never get tired of it. I just love Amanda's swinging style and there's so much to enjoy from the band. They also give a fresh feel to some old standards that is most rewarding. Amanda Carr and her band deserve great success.
