A brief biography
Originally a classically trained pianist, Amanda fell in love with the power of rock and the overdriven guitar. But not being one to be constrained to any one musical genre, she has blended the boundaries throughout her musical career between folk, blues, rock and classical. An accomplished singer/songwriter, Amanda has written and recorded many pieces, and is currently working on her solo album on which she plays guitar and vocals and programs the bass, drums and synthesizer backing.
Amanda has played in several bands based in southern England, but gigging throughout the UK. She has been involved in various duo and solo work (the main duo being Wazzoon (Amanda Lehmann & Eddy Deegan), who's album "Through the Haze" is available from this site), session vocals and guitar, and also written music for film and TV.
From 2009 Amanda has been playing guitar and backing / lead vocals with Steve Hackett, recording vocals on "Out of the Tunnel's Mouth" and subsequently joining the band on the UK 2009 tour, and continuing throughout 2010 - 2013.
During this time, Amanda has also recorded vocals on Steve Hackett's "Beyond the Shrouded Horizon", Squackett's "A Life Within a Day" and more recently Steve Hackett's "Genesis Revisited II" and Wolflight. She also performs on the live DVD "Fire & Ice", and subsequently appears as a special guest on Steve Hackett's "Live at Hammersmith" and "Live at the Albert Hall" DVDs.
Amanda is currently taking time out of the touring scene to be at home with her son, and appears whenever she can as a special guest at Steve Hackett shows. She is also working on her solo album and continues to be involved in recording projects, one being Sarastro Blake's "New Progmantics" and currently Foreign's inspired rock opera "The Symphony of the Wandering Jew Part II", due for release later in 2016.
Amanda also plays electric, acoustic and vocals with "Reckless Heart" as "Nancy".
