Amanda McCarthy is a storyteller compelled to speak the truth. She doesn’t fit in a box and she doesn’t like rules. Blending many influences, her music is undeniably pop, but brings along an alternative rock twist, a dash of Nashville, and the heart of an old soul. She has independently released three EP's - most notably, the acoustic versions of her original songs “Elephant in the Room” and “Bad News” made it to the nomination ballot for the 59th Annual Grammy Awards in the category of Best American Roots Performance. She will be releasing new music in 2018 as she plans the release of her debut full-length album.

She has told her stories and sung her songs everywhere from the Fire & Water Cafe (Northampton, MA) to the Glenfarg Folk Club (Scotland) and The Story Space (Central Square, Cambridge).
