About Amanda

Amanda Riffe hails from a small town in Indiana just outside of Indianapolis, but don’t let this fool you. This small town girl with the big country voice has been likened to Martina McBride and LeAnn Rimes, yet has her own unique sound and style. Amanda’s strong yet subtle voice has a clarity unsurpassed. In today’s world of country music it is rare, indeed, to find an artist that can lure you in with a power ballad, yet have the talent to “rock your socks off” with a sultry blues up-tempo knee slapper. Amanda is a true artist in every sense of the word.

Amanda is an accomplished vocal artist and pianist, and has been singing, dancing and playing piano since she was three (3) years old. She has opened for Zac Brown Band, Jamie O’Neal, Ty Herndon and numerous others. Amanda has performed the National Anthem before packed stadiums for the Philadelphia Phillies, Cincinnati Reds, Indiana Pacers, Indianapolis Indians and at Lowes Motor Speedway. Amanda has won numerous singing contests and has been performing at local fairs and festivals, churches and sporting events throughout the Midwest from a very young age.

Rarely do you find an artist with so much talent all wrapped up in one small attractive package. Amanda not only has the look and stage presence, she has the talent to be a triple threat as an artist. Amanda’s performances are a combination of class meets country with a whole bunch of talent.
