A brief biography

Originally a classically trained pianist, Amanda fell in love with the power of rock and the overdriven guitar. But not being one to be constrained to any one musical genre, she has blended the boundaries throughout her musical career between folk, blues, rock and classical. An accomplished singer/songwriter, Amanda has written and recorded many pieces, and her new solo album was released 20 August 2021. This is available to order from Amanda's WEBSTORE

Amanda spent her early musical years gigging extensively throughout the UK with her bands. She has also been involved in various duo and solo work (the main duo being Wazzoon - Amanda Lehmann & Eddy Deegan). Their album "Through the Haze", recorded in 1994 - has been remastered and is available for download on the WEBSTORE.

Amanda also released her Shadow EP in 2010, which can also be downloaded on the WEBSTORE, or you can check it out on Amanda's You Tube channel, or on streaming (Apple, Amazon, Spotify, etc)

Amanda has announced the release of her brand new solo album INNOCENCE and ILLSUION which can be pre-ordered from the WEBSTORE.

Other projects

Amanda is currently taking time out of the touring scene to be at home with her son, and appears whenever she can as a special guest at Steve Hackett shows, and is also a regular contributor of vocals on his studio ablums.
