NOTES
Singer, songwriter, pianist, and acoustic guitarist Amanda Green was raised in Miami Beach, FL. She knew from almost the beginning that she wanted to be a rock star. When she was three years old her love for music revealed itself with the help of an old piano that had been acquired by her family when a local hotel was torn down. In 1981, a bright-eyed and ambitious Green put together a cassette tape called Amanda Green's Greatest Hits, and promptly tried to sell it to friends at school.

Green has come a long way since those innocent childhood days, and she's worked hard to make it to a point in her career where music could become her full-time occupation. Over the years, Green has appeared in live shows across the United States, opening for major acts like the Goo Goo Dolls and Sheryl Crow. Green's own performances are filled with numbers that go from fun and energetic -- punctuated by her bold, flaming red hair and green guitar -- to serious and sad. She is backed by a first-rate band, consisting of members like Derek Murphy and bass guitarist Matthew Sabatella.

In 1996, Green completed her first full-length album, Junk and Stuff, released under the Y&T Music label. The album received plenty of positive reviews from critics. A video was made for one of the tracks, "Why Do I Have to Die?," from the Junk and Stuff album.
