Album Notes
Moments of musical magic are all I need Playing chords can plant the seed, then its the breath the inbetween, the silent bit that makes it seem, only the moment matters
Amanda Kay is an original composer based in Queensland Australia. Her unique approach and journey to music has created a memorable repertoire of entertaining songs.
Her adventure with composing started when she bought her first guitar as a project to learn whilst wintering as a carpenter at Mawson Station in Antarctica. Amanda Kay wrote her first song whilst working there. On the ship returning to Australia she shared it with the musical people on board. They took her creation and performed a magnificent concert amongst the ice bergs. Since then she has been hooked. She has a variety of influences, from Jazz to rock, from Reggae to folk. Her international travels and musical friends have added a little of the wandering minstrel tones from Southern Africa poly rhythms to South Americas syncopated Latin feel. She has created a new unique sound. Some of the performances Amanda has been involved with recently include the Queensland 100th birthday celebration, at Queensland Parliament House, The Brisbane Festival, The National Folk Festival, Yungaburra Folk Festival, Evolve Festival, The Jazz Cellar, The Artists Shed, Brunswick Hotel, Acoustic Cafe, Sandringham Hotel, The Wickham, Fretfest and The Tablelands Folk Festival. Amanda played with The Reclaimers Orchestra (repertoire included Amanda’s compositions), with The Transformers Choir, and solo, at Woodford Folk Festival during the last few years. She received recognition there winning the battle of the bands. She has received awards for 'The Election Song' and has performed with Rowan Marley, The Rockwiz Orchestra and Deborah Conway. She performs at art gallery launches, film festivals and functions. Her tasteful music is a treat for those who study and appreciate music.
She released an album in 2011 called ‘Chasin’ Rainbows’, which has been well received, and nicely reviewed. Amanda was part of the opening of the 2011 Queensland Music Festival with a choir she is involved with called The Transformers who performed with Deborah Conway and the Rockwiz Orchestra. The Transformers (with Amanda Kay) performed a selection of songs to the Dalai Lama for an intimate lunch at the 2011 Happiness Conference in Brisbane. The Dalai Lama enjoyed the performance. He came and greeted and thanked the choir and musicians for the joyful music. James Black from The Rockwiz Orchestra commented that Amanda’s beautiful nylon string was her secret weapon. She has met and played with Bob Marley's son Rohan Marley who commented she knows her licks.
     Her original tunes are mellifluous, enticing and have a sound that is easily recognisable as own. Her melodies and lyrics have hooks that leave you humming the tune long after the music has finished The compositions she writes are complicated chord progression with wonderful tension, release and resolution. The emotion of the words is reflected in the simple melody and passionate delivery. Amanda’s music has made grown men weep.
