Amanda West Music is an award winning singer-songwriter, recording artist, music teacher, and mother. Not afraid of the big questions, she asks: Who are we? Why are we here? What does it mean to be human, and how can we most deeply live our temporary and precious lives?

A native of California, Amanda grew up singing around campfires and began her career as a performing singer-songwriter when she was a teenager, after a serious car accident awakened her to the preciousness of life. Earning a Bachelor’s degree in Cultural Anthropology, she understands music to be a part of our universal human birthright, playing an essential role in our experience of being alive.

Offered in an angelic voice over folk fusion instrumentation, West’s all-original songs explore topics from humanity’s impact on the planet to musings on women’s role in society, intimate stories of love, and recipes for self-empowerment and cultural evolution. She sings of birth, death, and the life in between, approaching music is not as entertainment, but a sacred form of healing art.

With her musical & life partner, Pete Solomon, Amanda has toured the West Coast of the U.S. extensively and completed two UK/European tours, offering her «thoughtful heart songs» in a variety of places, including concert halls, spiritual centers, conferences and festivals. West has six self-produced CD’s under her belt, including one, “Truth, Love & Understanding”, themed on marriage, and another, “More Than Anything,” themed on new motherhood. Her latest collection of work, titled “Consanguinity” explores themes around family, the experience of womanhood, and the blood ties that bind us together. It is currently in studio production.

In addition to performing and recording her own music, Amanda co-leads singing circles for pregnant women and mothers, through a project called Womb Song, leads community singing circles, and teaches voice, guitar and songwriting.

After her song and music video, “The Summer You Were Born” won entrance into Project Afterbirth, the first international art exhibit on early parenthood, she has gone on to become an associate artist of the Digital Institute for Early Parenthood, dedicated to the presentation and promotion of international art and research on pregnancy, birth & new parenthood. She runs a group called “musician mamas”, and since the birth of her son four years ago, has become an advocate for musician mothers, finding herself at the unusual intersection where music and motherhood meet. Due out in 2017 is a book, “Music & Motherhood,” for which West wrote a chapter about the benefits of singing through pregnancy, birth and post-partum.

Her creative mind continues to flow with new ideas and inspirations, as Amanda weaves a life of intention and heart creating a better world through music.

Samantha Margret is a singer songwriter and San Francisco native. Raised on an eclectic mix of her mother’s Nanci Griffith and her father’s Eric Carmen, Samantha learned to love music as a multifaceted art form—one she was dying to be a part of. At a young age, Samantha carried around a miniature cassette recorder, jam packed with the insightful lyrics of a six year old. She would discover the piano shortly thereafter, but wouldn’t dust off the keys to accompany herself until around 11. Samantha’s songwriting grew into a slew of experimental songs modeled after her idols, Regina Spektor and Sara Bareilles, and, now, her first EP, “Wandering I.”
