Bio

Amanda Stewart

Amanda Stewart is an American folk, country and pop artist based out of Bozeman, MT. With over 15 years of performing under her belt, Amanda is gearing up for the release of her debut album.

What/Who inspired you to pick up your instrument?

I've always been singing and performing. I was plugging away at the piano at a very young age as well. I just got to a point where I wanted to perform more, and wanted to write my own songs. My dad helped me pick out my first guitar, and then shortly after he passed away and I didn't play it for years. One day, I heard a melody in my head, and words to go with them that helped me sort out my feelings about him being gone. I wrote my first song that day and haven't stopped since.

What piece of musical advice would you give yourself if you could go back in time to the beginning of your musical journey?

Let your family (especially your poor mom who would sit outside your bedroom door every night and listen to you play) hear your music sooner. There's nothing to be afraid of! They love you and support you!

What keeps you excited about playing?

The feeling I get every time I start playing and singing. It's euphoric EVERY. SINGLE. TIME!

Desert Island 3 pedal pedalboard (not including tuner)

Reverb, delay, boost. That's all I need baby!

When you find yourself in a musical rut, what techniques do you do to break out of it?

I read a book, watch a movie, go hang out with my girlfriends and hear their stories. Then I write a song from their view, extrapolated a bit to fit my own narrative.

Who is your favorite artist/band today? And who was your favorite artist/band 10 years ago?

Today: Michigan Rattlers, Jade Bird, Savannah Conley, Fleetwood Mac

10 Years ago: Fleetwood Mac, Death Cab for Cutie

Not much has changed. I'm still just interested in killer songwriting.

When you find yourself in a music store - what is your go-to riff when test drive gear?

I always have to sing and play "Landslide" by Fleetwood Mac

What is your most prized/cherished piece of gear? And why?

My pedalboard. A dear friend of mine helped me piece it together. And of course, I am in love with my Gibson SJ-200… wait, my hot pink quarter-inch cables from a Rattlesnake!!!

What is the next big musical purchase you're hoping to save for?

I need to get new connecting cables for my board…. Would like to invest in some sweet stage lighting too.

Gear Breakdown

Amanda Stewart Gear

I use quarter-inch and XLRs mostly... looking to transition the rest of my setup soon. I love that I get a cleaner signal, and even more, the fun colors! They make great gifts.

Professional looking and quality! Plus Rattlesnake company is amazing to work with!

I love my new Tangerine guitar cable. It is well crafted and strong, both end, the straight and the 90 Deg ends a are wrapped in black rubber to soften the bending when in use. And the color is easy to see lowering the risk for me of tripping over the cable on stage.

I bought a guitar cable several years ago. The transaction was easy, & shipping was prompt. The cable is superlative. It's 15 feet, but I can't detect any tone loss. It is heavy, and built for far more work than I'll ever put it through. I could see this thing touring for years and not breaking... Read

If you want the best cables that money can buy at a price point that won’t eat your budget then you really need to call the gents at RCC.

It is heavy, and built for far more work than I'll ever put it through. I could see this thing touring for years and not breaking down. Bonus: I let a friend use it for the bullwhip when he was Indiana Jones for Halloween, and nobody noticed it was a guitar cable. 10/10 recommend and will replace any other cable or patch that breaks down on me with Rattlesnake.
