What to Expect
Audiences who love and cherish the standards of the Great American Songbook especially enjoy this show. They find the vocal interpretations and arrangements refreshing, entertaining, and nostalgic. This genre of music is experiencing a worldwide renaissance.
Amanda Cohen knows how to belt out a song. She croons the standards, thrilling her audiences with unique vocal style, beauty, and talent. She holds the listener captive with her “pure voice” approach, creating a truly unforgettable and haunting listening experience. Amanda’s unique style is a culmination of her life’s work, love for the music, and developed talent. She trained for many years singing the standards with two very talented mentors. They coached her on style, approach, phrasing and diction, helping to develop her upfront and personal vocal style.
Amanda is a professional singer and performer, appearing at leading hotels and performing arts centers. Aside from standards, Amanda fell in love with the harmonies in the music of the late 50’s and 60’s and sang lead in the “Earth Angels” group. The Earth Angels Show was performed in oldies revues with such original groups as: the Temptations, Coasters, Del Vikings, Mystics, Platters, and many others. She also performed as the Doo Wop Queen.
Amanda’s music career has come full circle, back to her roots and love for standards from the Great American Songbook. Amanda performed her one woman show on a Florida tour with her jazz band. She also entertains at Galas, Charitable Events, and Music Series engagements.
Amanda has three albums to her credit. The latest, “A New Standard” reflects Amanda’s ability to master this great genre of music from The Great American Songbook and in her own way, turn Old standards into New Standards. ”When Does The Hurtin Stop” is an original on the album that could surely become A New Standard. Her album is presently being aired and streamed worldwide and digital downloads are available on iTunes and GooglePlay.
Some of the stations that air her music are; Legends Radio, The Gene Martin Show, Dick Robinson's American Standards by the Sea, The Great American Songbook Radio Station, Jazz Lovers Radio, and All Jazz Radio.
