Maine-grown artist Amanda Gervasi’s insightful lyrics and intensity on-stage bring an audience to close attention while encouraging a look into themselves. With a folk-rock, roots and blues appreciation, her songs reveal a comfortable blend of her influences and originality. Amanda first drew inspiration from pre-international performer Ray Lamontagne, citing a 2004 State Theater show as one that sparked a “switching of the life-plan gears.” After a few years of traveling and sampling university (for good measure), she made the decision move to Portland and begin the musical pursuit of happiness. Within a short year, Amanda had a slew of reputable shows under her belt, performing shows at Port City Music Hall, SPACE, The Big Easy, Empire Dine and Dance, Blue, Slainte and Northstar Music Café among others. In addition to her solo-project, in late 2009 she became the newest member/lead singer of Gypsy Tailwind, recording two albums simultaneously and doubling her performance schedule. July 24th, 2010 marks the long-anticipated release of Amanda Gervasi’s debut album, “Merry the Ghost,” an album that explores the fine-line between love and insanity while allowing the listener an inside view of a passionate artist who has something to say.http://www.myspace.com/amandagervasimusic
