Live Music: Amanda Bocchi

Out of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, Amanda Bocchi emerges as an Americana neo soul songstress. Her songs combine musical elements from jazz harmony, hip hop rhythms, roots music, and an intoxicating soulful vibe to create a visceral sound Amanda calls-Americana Soul Flood. Her lyrics rush from the sweetness of motherhood to the death rattle of addiction. Her songs often change time or key suddenly following the intensity of the her lyrics. Organ Donor, Amanda’s upcoming sophomore album, is a memoir of her experience through heroin addiction and her transformation into recovery. Organ Donor is being recorded Fall 2018 at Fainting Goat Studio in Bedford, VA and is expected to be released Spring 2019.
