Biography

Swedish singer and multi-instrumentalist Amanda Mair's gorgeously airy melodies reveal an artist wise beyond her years. Raised on an island outside of Stockholm, Mair started singing at age four, soon picking up various instruments and by grade six drumming in a Hellacopters cover band, with things really clicking into place when she backed her singing with piano. Not long after, Mair began performing at nightclubs and in 2010 at age 15 recorded some covers in a local studio, making such an impression on the studio owner that he shared the results with Club 8 singer/multi-instrumentalist and Labrador label boss Johan Angergård, who then signed her. The following summer, Mair's debut single, "House," arrived, compelling The Washington Post to compare her to Kate Bush. Mair followed up in October with the single "Doubt" as she began working on her full-length debut with Philip Ekström (the Mary Onettes), and closed 2011 with Big Breakthrough honors from the Swedish Music Industry. Her self-titled record arrived in Sweden in 2012 (followed in the U.S. that June), earning comparisons to Lykke Li meets Rumours and being praised as one of the best Swedish debuts of all time by Aftonbladet (the country's largest daily paper). ~ Chrysta Cherrie
