Amanda Mair

Amanda Mair is a singer-songwriter/pianist from Stockholm, Sweden who has become one of the most talked-about artists of her country. She was discovered by Club 8’s Johan Angergård at the age of 15 and promptly signed to Angergård’s label, Labrador. She released her first single, “House,” in 2011, and the Washington Post raved, “The 16-year-old Mair sounds more like Kate Bush than Kate Bush does on her gorgeous, grown-up debut track.” Last year, Mair’s self-titled debut album hit Sweden and reached number 16 on the sales charts.

Watch the music video for Mair’s “House” below:

Betty Who blends indie, pop, and dance music into an irresistible mix of bold soundscapes, top 40 hooks, and knowing lyrics. Born and raised in Sydney, Australia, the recent Berklee graduate played cello by age four and began writing songs in her early teens. The singer-songwriter’s striking and memorable voice sparkles on her debut EP, The Movement, and with her signature heels and spiked blonde hair, this tall Aussie is impossible to overlook.

Betty Who’s new music video, “You’re In Love” (below), was recently featured on the MTV Buzzworthy Blog. Watch it here:
