Hey! In April we released our third album, Me Oh My. Thanks to all our Kickstarter contributors for their incredible generosity and, um, patience! We could not have done it without you (no really, we simply couldn’t have done this without you). You can purchase the album on our site (click here) or on iTunes. We’d love to hear what you think, so if you’re feeling it, drop us a note. Thanks again, everyone, and enjoy Me Oh My.

WNCW Offers High Praise for Amanda Anne Platt
Amanda Anne Platt has been hailed as “one of the best songwriters coming out of WNC these days” by WNCW programming director Martin Anderson, and her voice has been described as “perfectly unadorned” and “recklessly beautiful”. Her song, “Little Bird,” won second place in the general category of the MerleFest Chris Austin Songwriting contest in 2011 as well as taking home the grand prize in the Great Lakes Songwriting Contest that same year. Dane Smith of Asheville NC’s Mountain Xpress writes “Her songs make you sad…in a good way!”
In both her simple composition and honest delivery it’s easy to hear the influence of country legends such as Hank Williams, Patsy Cline, or Loretta Lynn, and with this Miss Platt credits growing up listening to her father’s extensive record collection every Saturday morning. Despite her love for classic country, she cites Bruce Springsteen and Tom Petty as major influences and her songwriting carries a wit and an edge that plants her firmly in her generation.
