Amanda Winterhalter

Born and grown on a small farm between Puget Sound and the Cascade foothills, Amanda Winterhalter makes songs at once elegantly crafted yet unafraid to show blood. Her songs walk the edges of unavoidable aches, desire and flirtation, and the uneasy paradoxes we carry. Amanda is a frequent performer with Seattle’s Bushwick Book Club, writing and presenting original music inspired by books. Her song “Shirt” won first place in the 2016 Jane Titland Songwriting Contest at the Tumbleweed Music Festival. Her debut album, Olea, released in November 2016, presents her range of styles from gothic Americana to grit rock. Her second album will release in the fall of 2018, as she begins work on a third project – a collaborative anthology of songs inspired by Pacific Northwest stories and heritage.

Artist Support Program 2018: Produce an album of songs inspired by historical stories of death, extinction, theft, relocation, and loss in the Pacific Northwest.
