'Perfect country music with amazing guitar licks and vocal harmonies. Simply outstanding.'
(Lauren Peel, Divided Together)
A seasoned writer and performer, Mandy has spent most of her adult life, in both the UK and America, giving in to wanderlust and crafting songs, many of which tell a story - about the ups and downs of relationships, her own and other people's struggles and quests for ... well, whatever it is we think our life is about, and anything else that has set her imagination off on her unconventional journey to where she is now.
After spending a decade in Austin, Texas, followed by a number of years back in the UK, she made a return visit to the States in 2010, drawn to Nashville, Tennessee, where she met and paired up professionally with singer songwriter Terri Calderon, with whom she has written a number of songs. Mandy has since then been over to Nashville several times to write and perform. She is now living in the south of England, and is a member of BASCA and the London Songwriters' Group. She is currently recording at Tigersonic Studio in London and is involved with the Fearless Females collective. Bluebird continues to flourish, and Mandy and Amanda are delighted to be playing at a number of care homes in Oxfordshire and the surrounding area.
Mandy's currently recording several new songs at Tigersonic Studio in North London, including 'In My Arms', which she also hopes to produce as a video. Anyone with any expertise/connections in music video production, please get in touch! :)
