Winner of the International Akademia Artist Vision 2020, and Akademia Singer Songwriter/Folk Artist of the Year in 2019, announced in April, the last few months have been breathtaking for Amanda Emblem.
She’s recorded with Eagle Rock frontman Ross Wilson, and Blues Legend Matt Taylor, and was invited onstage with Chain at Byron Bay Bluesfest in 2018. A Forces Entertainment Artist she flies to dangerous overseas locations to entertain Australian Troops. She has opened for Kiss, Motley Crue and Aerosmith… Who Is Amanda Emblem?
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).
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.
The 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, earning her the title of Artist of the Year in 2019.
Amanda is also a regular Forces Entertainment Artist. Over the last 12 years Amanda has toured to war torn communities on behalf of The Australian Armed 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.
