    Please allow me to introduce myself.  Photo by Megan McCoy In March, I was honored to help Bill Crook (Crook Custom Guitars) at the Nashville vintage guitar show! This was a great opportunity to hang out with my favorite guitar/bass builder - and soak up some of his knowledge (or try to anyway). I was fortunate to meet a lot of wonderful people that day... and I came home with a beautiful...

    Geez, so here I am... off of the road and sitting in my apartment in Nashville. I have been touring for almost the entire summer!

    I am so deeply saddened by the passing of Levon Helm. I was shocked when I heard the news yesterday. The contributions that Levon made to music are astronomical! While I was in college, Pandel Collaros introduced me to a beautiful movie called "The Last Waltz." Wow. Ever since that moment, I've been all about The Band. I spent my college years tearing apart Rick Danko bass lines -...

    Nashville's first power trio... coming soon! Check out this video of our first rehearsal - the three of us were never together in the same room until this night. Awesome! Video features raw footage of Sol Philcox on the lead guitar/vox, Sean Sunderland on drums, and Amanda McCoy on bass. We're playing all of the good stuff, Nashville isn't ready for this. Stay tuned.

    Here is the studio video that I promised! As always, my sessions with Pandel Collaros were extremely productive and successful! Thanks, Pandel! This video features raw footage from the January 2012 sessions for my new album, The Hurt - which is set to be released in Fall 2012. Here are some photos from the January sessions. Until next time! -Amanda
