Early LifeEdit

Amanda on Little Stars

Amanda on "Little Stars"

Amanda started getting involved in music after her family settled in Täby, Sweden. Her first musical inspiration was Michael Jackson's Dangerous and she remembers spending hours in front of the mirror singing along with the album. By the age of 6 she was taking dance classes. Her dance teacher suggested that she try out for a local production of "The Sound Of Music" and, after taking her teachers advice, she received the role of Brigitta. The role was her first chance to sing in public. After performing more and more she entered a competition on a Swedish TV show called "Little Stars" and won by singing Janet Jackson's If.

Musical CareerEdit

Eventually Anders Bagge heard her sing and she was signed to his production company Murlyn Music. The demo she recorded with Bagge eventually led to Amanda being the first young female pop act to sign with Madonna's Maverick Records.

In 2000 she made her professional debut on the Rugrats in Paris movie soundtrack with the song You Don't Stand a Chance.

Her debut album, Everybody Doesn't, was released in 2001. The album was produced by Swedish hitmakers BAG and Arnthor, Bloodshy and other producers from the Murlyn Music camp. Amanda co-wrote the songs Everybody Doesn't and Not The One (For Me). The title track, Everybody Doesn't, was her first and only single to date, peaking at #81 on the Billboard Hot 100. During the summer of 2001 Amanda opened for boy bands N*Sync and O-Town.

There was a scheduled release for a second single, Can't Stop My Love, but due to lack of album sales, Maverick cancelled the single and dropped Amanda.

Amanda also has writing credits on Play's song Us Against The World.
