Amanda Mair was discovered by the label Labrador Reords in 2010. At the time, she had no MySpace account, nor any demos recorded. Her debut single “House” received good reviews and the Washington Post wrote: “The 16 (yes, 16)-year-old Mair sounds more like Kate Bush in her gorgeous, grown-up’s debut track than Kate Bush herself.” Swedish Poplight considered “House” to be one of the best songs of 2011.
