Amanda Brown

 Amanda Brown

 

Many fans first heard Amanda Brown on season three of The Voice, but by then, she’d already built a career performing with artists such as Stevie Wonder, Alicia Keys, Justin Timberlake, CeeLo Green, Jennifer Hudson, Michael Bolton, Jessie J, Gwen Stefani, and others. Brown spent much of 2017 as a background vocalist on Adele’s 25 world tour, before kicking off 2018 on tour with The Killers, who asked her to sing backing vocals and open for the band with her own material. With the spring 2018 release of her first full-length debut, Dirty Water, music fans can finally hear her risk-taking, pop-savvy, finely honed rock-and-roll. Her single from that debut, titled “The Believers,” is streaming now. http://amandabrownmusic.com

With sharp pop sensibility, and a strong nod to the singer-songwriter tradition, Chris defies genres, incorporating Pop, Folk, Soul, and Americana elements seamlessly into his music.

Born in California, and raised in Virginia, Chris has built a reputation for uplifting and emotive solo shows in New York’s lower east side, as well as inspiring collaborations with musician friends also coming up in the New York music scene – especially his close friend and longtime tour mate Matt Simons (“Catch & Release”, “With You”). Chris has played over 1000 shows throughout America and Europe the past few years, and self-released his most recent album The Noise, which he coproduced with Grammy-winning producer Will Hensley.

Chris recently capped off a 21 date national tour in 2017 of the United States with a one-off performance in Amsterdam in front of 5500 screaming fans at AFAS Live supporting Matt Simons (‘Catch & Release’, ‘With You’). Chris was also a featured performer at the 2017 PinkPop Festival in The Netherlands, where he shared a bill with the likes of Green Day, Martin Garrix, and Kings of Leon. 

 Ayer’s last three singles, ’Stay Another Night,’ ’On the Blvd,’ and ‘Heavy’ have a combined total of over 3.5 million streams on Spotify. Stay Another Night’ landed in the Spotify Viral 50 in Denmark and Holland, it was featured on Spotify’s Bae Playlist, and it hovered on Hype Machine’s Twitter Music Chart for a couple weeks.
