Amanda Richards & The Good Long Whiles - The Minor Key Concert Series
Doors 7:00pm - All Ages Show - Bar with I.D.

This concert is part of The Minor Key Concert Series at The Old Church Concert Hall, which was created to showcase the best singer-songwriters this world has to offer. Genres will range, but the stories will linger. Set in Portlands oldest still standing church, you will find yourself set in one of the most intimate venues around.

Amanda Richards has become a frequent and popular presence on the Portland live music scene, playing with her band  Steve Moore on lap steel, banjo and guitar, bassist Andrew Clapp and drummer Mark Powers  as well as solo and in duo configurations. The music of Amanda Richards covers a wide and diverse field  from sensuous ballads to old-school rock; soulful bassa-nova to laugh-out-loud country satire.

The live show is a journey through many different styles and moods, but no matter what song Amanda sings or what audience she plays for, she has everyone hanging on every word. Though she is skilled in the recording studiobehind either the microphone or the mixing boardand her albums are beautifully realized, delicately crafted, and highly regarded, Amandas true calling remains the live performance, where she proves, night after night, that she was indeed born for the stage.

AMANDA RICHARDS
Born into music in Orange County, CA Amanda stepped into the limelight at a very young age. Her first experience on stage was at Disneyland alongside her father, soon after she started to walk. After gaining some very early experience, sharing the stage with her family of musicians in Modjeska, California, Amanda relocated to Portland, Oregon, where as a teen she hitchhiked, busked on street corners, or lived in her car while honing her skills and crafting her unique style of appropriately called "Bohemian Country" music.

In a few short years, Richards has garnered a lifetimes worth of experience. She has released three studio albums, one live album, and her music catalog contains over two hundred songs. She has headlined at Portlands historic Aladdin Theater, appeared on "NPR's River City Folk" in an hour-long interview and has earned 6-Grammy nominations: Song of the Year, Best Female Country Performance, 2-nominations Record of the Year, 2-nominations Best Country Song. Her 2011 release Play Dead earned her an Independent Music Award for Best Concept Album.
