Sioux Falls Jazz and Blues Presents Amanda Shaw and The Cute Guys Friday, March 8, 2013 at 8pm.
At the young age of 22, Amanda Shaw is a powerful performer, composer, and arranger who has been touring nationally and internationally since she was eight years old. She has recorded three critically-acclaimed albums, won a Big Easy Award for Best Female Entertainer and has even had two feature roles in Disney movies. The New Orleans native is a pioneer of the new breed of young, roots-based musicians who have embraced both the traditional sounds of Louisiana and the pop sounds of the mainstream.
Amanda has taken the national stage with her fourth album, Good Southern Girl, and re-introduced herself to the industry as an adult. The album is the first to capture her effervescent spirit of a live performance, and showcase her ability to expand her musical repertoire. Her first two self-released albums, Little Black Dog and I’m Not a Bubblegum Pop Princess, have consistently been among the top ten best sellers at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, where she has drawn record crowds since she was 10. Two years later her critically acclaimed third album, Pretty Runs Out, made its debut with Billboard Magazine listing it as one of their “Best Bets of 2008.”
