"Who Is Amanda Emblem" was the debut released on Wild Weather Records in 2018. At the time Amanda toured with The Robert Cray Band. Since then, her and Taco have been on an amazing journey, taking them all over Australia and the World.
Earlier this year, the new single "No One's Perfect... Even you" was released, with critical acclaim and airplay, winning a Akademia Award in the USA for best Folk song, but it is just one of many great tunes, spanning different genres best described as Americana due to its Blues Rock leanings.
Amanda is also a regular performer for the Australian Defence Forces. Below are pics from the 2018/19 Middle East Tour, entertaining Australian Troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Amanda and Taco performed as a duo over three weeks during the Holiday period. It was a fantastic experience for all involved and Amanda's 6th Tour of Duty for The Australian Defence Forces.
