Event description
Amanda St John and Band (plus support from Tony Villiers) The Muscle Shoals Sessions - Album Launch Party

About this Event

Amanda St John is a soulful singer-songwriter from Glenariffe, Co. Antrim. She received rave reviews and worldwide airplay of her debut album 'Grow', which was released in 2016. With comparisons to Dusty Springfield and Imelda May; St John has been described as a ‘head-turning vocalist with serious song writing prowess… a sensational artist’ [Visit Dublin]. In 2018 she became the first independent Northern Irish/Irish artist in history to record in the legendary FAME Studios, Muscle Shoals, Alabama. Some of the most iconic artists in the world have recorded there, including Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Wilson Pickett, Percy Sledge and The Rolling Stones etc. Amanda's songs and performance style have been heavily influenced by these artists thus it was a natural progression for her to follow in their footsteps and capture that authentic sound in FAME Studios. Backed by her band (which includes St John's main collaborator Paul Tierney) this gig is the North Coast launch of her Irish and UK album release tour and is sure to be a great night of celebration!
