Powerhouse Swedish pop singer/songwriter Amanda Fondell catapulted to fame after being the youngest contestant to win Swedish Idol at just 16. After releasing a No. 1 album, she paused to truly find her own sound and gain a new, individual focused perspective in her music, resulting a new EP In A Talk With Nature, that will be released on June 2, 2017. LISTEN HERE the first single “Naked” via PopCrush – the banger highlights Amanda’s commanding vocals, demanding to see a person for their true self.
Acceptance is a key message in the stunning EP. Over the last few years, Amanda had a profound experience of creating a different persona for herself, and meeting demands to act a certain way. The four-track collection is her bold statement to stay true to herself and stand up for what she believes in. Growing up in a small village in Sweden, Linderöd, she started creating covers of her favorite songs with her best friend. At just 13, the duo were invited to play at local events, and eventually began writing their own music. At 16, she decided to take a chance with the music industry and auditioned for Swedish Idol on a whim, ultimately winning the competition. Throughout her career, Amanda’s music has accumulated over 22 million streams, seen multiple singles chart in Sweden and has collaborated with many prominent electronic artists, including lending her vocals to Axwell’s “Barricade” and Didrick’s “Smoke” in the last year.
