Influences: Folk and rock singer-songwriters, punk/alternative, indie folk & pop, and a little bit of everything. My favorite songwriter by far is Frank Turner.
I'm an actively performing singer-songwriter trying to instill a more regular writing habit, and hoping to release a polished studio album in May.
My goal this month is to write as many new songs as possible and be less precious about it, and I'm trying to challenge myself with different games, prompts, and collaborations so I can improve my lyrical, musical, and improvisational skills.
I've set up a lot of collaborations already so might not have time for more, but feel free to get in touch if you like my stuff and are interested in working together and I'll think about it!

Hi! Would it be ok for you to add our collab to my post Fawm "top collabs At Fawm" collwction At bandcamp?
Hi Amanda -- A couple of random suggestions for you. Reach out to Jessica Graae (https://fawm.org/fawmers/jessicagraae/), y'all might have some overlap in your styles and the venues you perform in.
And maybe consider coming to FAWMstock this summer in Delaware. It's pretty heavily attended by people in the Philadelphia singer/songwriter scene. It's fun too.
Hi Amanda, I've sent you my reply. Thank you for letting me know about your message.
Sent you an email on our collab, maybe that’s an email you don’t check as often. Let me know if you didn’t get anything
Thanks for the nice comment on “Devil Peak.” It was fun to “anti” your delightful song! I am looking forward to the synthesis. It will be fun to see what comes out, with two songs that are so different. (OTOH, a couple of years ago I had to synthesize an upbeat ‘80s pop song with a Viking funeral dirge in an odd time signature. This should be a piece of cake next to that. 😄 )
How are you? I’ve wrote some lyrics which I think could work quite well with your style (had a listen to some of your tracks, they’re fab 😀 ) It’s quite conversational with a touch of humour - I’ve emailed it to you so let me know what you think. No pressure though - if you would prefer another one I won’t take any offence though haha we can try another one 👌
I saw we got paired what do you want to do, write lyrics or music?
Looks like you're after me on the Anti/Syn challenge. I'll try not to make it too terrible of an opening act.
Well your stuff looks quite neat. I look forward to actually listening when not at work. 😁 Happy FAWM!
let's keep in touch! gth
I just noticed your website link on your FAWM profile page doesn't work. You can edit your profile and try using just the basic URL amandaroseriley.com
Hope you have a wonderful FAWM 2020!
Hi Amanda, thank you for your kind reply. Yes, this sounds awesome. I'll pm you. Thank you.
Hi Amanda, wishing you a very happy Winter time. I'm always happy to collaborate and I often look for a singer. Your voice is beautiful (listened to some of you soundcloud songs, they are beautiful). Hope we collaborate on something.
I'd love to possibly collaborate if I get the time! I'll jot down your name and see what happens later in the month if that sounds good. Happy FAWMing!
Welcome to FAWM! Hope it's a great and positive experience for you.
welcome to fawm!
Hey! It sounds like you are in the right place! Welcome
Good luck to that album! And welcome to FAWM.
