The voice behind "The Amanda Emblem Experiment" is an Australian musician who has successful navigated a lifetime of music achievements from mostly behind the scenes. A songwriter and story teller at heart. The creative path has led her to work with Australian Legends, Matt Taylor (Chain) and Ross Wilson (Daddy Cool/Mondo Rock) and David Lowy (The Dead Daisies), fronting bands on bass guitar with Kaleidoscope (1998 - 2005) Legless (2003 - 2013) Diva Demolition (2012 - 2017) Team Utiopia (2017-19).
Akademia Artist of the Year in 2019, the recent Award comes after a year of accolades for the single "No-One's Perfect... Even You" which won best folk song in March 2019. The single proved particularly popular, getting worldwide coverage on the international networks.
To call Amanda a Folk Singer/Songwriter is not giving you the big picture. Although well earned, the title of Akademia Artist of the Year doesn't take into account the years of writing and performing blues, rock, garage punk and indie pop.
An Entertainer on Duty
Amanda is also a regular Australian Forces Entertainment Artist. Over the last 12 years Amanda has toured to war torn communities all over the globe as a civilian musician with the Forces, bringing respite to deployed personal on the ground in The Middle East, Afghanistan, Iraq, Sinai, Kabul, Solomon Islands and Timor Lest.
Amanda and Taco performed as a duo over three weeks during the Holiday period Christmas 18/19. It was a fantastic experience for all involved and Amanda's 6th Tour of Duty for The Australian Defence Forces.
