18-year-old singer from Sweden, Amanda Mair will have a busy schedule in China as she is to play at Jue Festival in Beijing and Shanghai and at Sino Swedish sounds in Shanghai.
Only 15 and without a Myspace or Bandcamp page when a friend of hers passed a demo to Sweden’s famed record label Labrador in 2010, Amanda Mair’s subsequent rise to the top has been a thrilling one. Her first single “House” released in 2011 received immediate adulation from critics and the public, drawing comparisons to the likes of Kate Bush and Dusty Springfield. She followed it up with “Doubt,” later the lead single off her self-titled debut album and wrapped up 2011 with Big Breakthrough honors from the Swedish Music Industry survey.
The 18-year-old talent will be playing in Beijing on March 20 at 8:00 pm and in Shanghai the following day at 8:00 pm during Jue Festival.
Jue Festival is an annual open-source arts and music festival in both Shanghai and Beijing, presented by Split Works. Now in its fifth year, JUE is all about celebrating the best of the local creative communities in these two great cities and inviting artists from around the world to showcase their talent in China. In 2012 the festival drew over 39,000 attendees to 88 events.
On March 23 at 7:00 pm she can be seen performing in Shanghai at Sine Swedish Sounds
