Amanda’s lifelong love of music – nurtured from a young age by a guitar-playing dad and drummer mother – led her to the Public Relations program at Durham College, where she focused much of her studies on the music biz. An internship with MapleMusic Recordings (now Cadence Music Group) helped pave the way to her career with Indoor Recess in 2010. Over the years, she has had the privilege of working with countless musicians and events, delighting in the opportunity to discover new artists and watch them grow and bask in their successes.
