Just enough scary and gore to balance out the humor. Fun times! Wonderful music.

Description

The music of Amanda Richards covers a wide and diverse field — from sensuous ballads to old-school rockabilly; soulful bossa-nova to laugh-out-loud country satire. In 2004, at the age of twenty-one she released Not Always Sexy as her first album followed by Live at Mississippi Studios in 2006, which was hailed as “spellbinding across the spectrum, and a standout whose star is on the rise” by the Portland Tribune.

In 2009, Amanda released Who Has Your Heart to great reviews and a growing fan base, with music from the album being picked up by radios stations of different genres. Her latest studio album, the post-apocalyptic, zombie-themed _Play Dead _(2010), was praised by the Portland Mercury as “sweet and enduring, despite Richards’s bloody lyrical content. The end of days never sounded so sweet."
