When she uploaded her first YouTube video in 2011 all Amanda Yang wanted was to connect with others. Now with over 32,000 YouTube subscribers following her original music and acoustic covers, the self taught, Indie-Pop and R&B inspired singer-songwriter has gone on to open a show for MAX, received features in Universal Music Group and Warner Music projects and has surpassed over 45,000,000 streams on Spotify.
Moved by her honest lyrics and passionate vocal prowess fans found something relatable in Amanda, and; in turn, she discovered greater purpose through music. Amanda’s cover songs, often accompanied by guitar or ukulele, caught the attention from fans of Demi Lovato, Hailee Steinfeld and many more. With the support of a strong and growing fan base Amanda gained the confidence to take the leap into original music.
Captivated by her bold and relatable songwriting, Amanda’s fans have made her original youtube videos twice as popular as her cover songs. Her original music now has over twice the number of average views of her covers on her YouTube channel. Because of all the love from those supporting her all around the world, she has been able to spend even more time on her music. She owes all her success to the listeners who have given her a platform to speak her mind and help others find a place to vent, heal, and love through her music.
