Amanda Hardy

What’s Coming Your Way

(Eighth Note Entertainment)

The debut four song EP from Seattle teenage upstart Amanda Hardy and her band proves she means business and plans to take on the “boy club “of heavy rock by going for the jugular. Hardy and her crew of Austin Cass on guitar Jerad Lewis on drums and Dylan Trujillo on bass have been making a name for them in the Seattle scene for some time and the lead guitar duo was recently honored at Brotherhood of the guitar event and asked to open for many national acts. The group wisely chose to record with Scotty Olsen and Jason Shavey and Synergy studios in Seattle to give the debut a pro refinement and depth. The opening track “Fire Away,” jumps out of the speakers with a raging duel guitar assault that revs up until hardy’s vocals take control delivering a self empowerment anthem. The groove shifts to a heavy shuffle for “Ugly Girl,” for deep dose of sarcasm. The vengeance continues during the time shifting riff rockin blues “Caught You in Bed,” with Hardy wailing like a banshee, pushing her throat to the absolute edge. Track four “All Around Me,’ is a progressive rock ballad that opens with Hardy on piano and operatic vocals that build into an emotional climax befitting a paranormal romance film soundtrack filled with desperate angst filled monsters who only want to be loved while they rip your heart from your chest.
