NEWS & ADVENTURES                                                          ~ September 2010
Dear Friends,
The Autumnal Equinox is almost upon us; a time for stepping out of daily habits & expectations, and remembering how to breathe, listening to your own heartbeat.
The sweet news here at Amanda West Music today is this: in collaboration with Pete Solomon I have created a three song EP entitled "Truth, Love & Understanding." We are doing a limited run, and these will be available only at live shows until they are gone. (So check tour dates below, with more on the website, and more to be added soon!). I am extremely proud of what we have birthed and I can't wait for you to hear these new songs.
Meanwhile, in the next couple weeks I will be taking some time away from the computer to honor the calling for reblancing that comes every year with this equinox. I hope you may do the same, or something similarly grounding.
May your Fall be a golden and delicious time, with music abounding. 
in Peace, Love, & Music
your folk songstress,
~ Amanda
