Amanda Chapman has three obsessions; cats, chocolate and music. She owned her first cat when she was 19, discovered chocolate when she was 3 and wrote her first song when she was 12.
Amanda was born, raised and still lives in Yorkshire. She grew up in South Kirkby, a small, close-knit village, with her incredibly supportive parents Alice and Frank. At 13 Amanda sang live for the first time and amazed her friends and family with a vocal maturity way beyond her years. From that moment, she knew that her future was to be in music.
Amanda Chapman is the latest in a long line of Yorkshire contemporary songwriters, joining such esteemed company as Joe Cocker, Pulp and, most recently, the Kaiser Chiefs.
