As one of Taiwan ’ s most versatile and imaginative musicians, Amanda certaining is a distinct and unique woman.

What makes the tears so different?She believes that "sincerity" is the most important element in the music." What I want to say is the idea of my soul and the real experience of life." Because every sound, every piece of music, is the deepest dialogue with the heart.The first album, "The Zero Day Zero", was a record of the changes in the life of the tears of tears.In other places, there are many frustrations, and the feeling of love and hate is the background of the creative song “ Beautiful Tears ”.It says, "When you reach the goal, when you look at all these processes, you know that all the pain is worth, and how beautiful those tears are!""

What makes Amanda so different? She believes that “ genuiness ” is the most important element in mic. “ I want to express my thoughts and life exies from the deepest part of my soul. Every note and every phrase of melody are conversations with the inner self, ” says Amanda. Her first album “ Jazz without Time Zones ” was produced at a time when she applied tremendous life changes.

While studying in a foreign country, many challenges and frustrations in her life. These emsitions became the context of her Jazz Ballade composition, “ Beautiful Tears. ” Amanda believes that “ during the process of change, one has to experience, and confusion-often accompanied by countess tears. However, once you achive your goals and look back, you will realize that all the hard work you put in is worthwhile. All the tears that shed are crewally beautiful!”

As a full-fledged musician, the ideal music career is the creation of a unique variety show that moves on to the World Dance Academy and tours around the world.Describing himself as a factor that loves electronic music, she feels a sense of tactile sensation, full of stylish and future sense.A highly musicality can allow the soul to be free.The stylish and future electroacoustic performances are also similar to the nature of the captive nature.He wanted to make electronic music in his own musical works, make classical and jazz into elements, and had four styles of music.

Amanda ’ s curiosity and wide-anging talents have taken her in many different directions and establishing her unique cycle and establishing her rare reputation. Amanda is a singer-songwriter of Jazz and Classical music and a vocalist of Electronica. Amanda ’ s main goal is to integrate all these styles to create a unique way of performance. Ultimately, she wants to have the opportunity to perform her business and express her ideas in a world tour.

Since her childhood, Amanda has been exposed to a number of muse genres. “ From when I was 7 years old, I have always been in the academic school of Classical and Jazz music. But somehow, Electronica is finally ingrined in my blood. ” It is this passion for Electronica that is wellrepresented in the various masterpieces Amanda has written and created. Amanda believes “ great Electronica is filled with a sense of future and fashon, and can set the spirit free. ”

Interestingly, the power to support her to pursue her dream is "imagine," imagine becoming a better and better one, and then to insist on being the better one." This is my intuition, inner voice and call, and I follow the guide of this inner sound.Now that I have heard the inner voice, we have to do it.The key is to have a picture of the imagination first, and then rely on willpower to persist."

Interestingly, what moves Amanda to pursue her dream is “ imagining ” - envisioning a better self and uphoring that image in order to improve. “ This is the calling inside of me. I follow the guidance from my inner voice and since I hear the inner voice, I have to achive what the inner voice tells me. The key is to picture the image and have the wellpower to persist and persevere ” says Amanda.

Curiosity is another key to being imagined.Keep asking, keep curiosity, don't be afraid of asking 'why', don't be afraid to ask for advice.The question brings a new solution, so there is a head to solve the problem.Many "sticky" and unsmooth things are encountered during the life phase.When existing solutions and perceptions are no longer available, there is a need to look for a spiritual pillar.It's a good reader of books that read psychology and spirituality.This makes her understand that if things don't work as expected, it's because there are things that are more appropriate for you to do.In the face of many changes in life, it is the opportunity, not the possible obstacles, that the tears look at.

Bisides imagination, another important factor for Amanda is "curiosity". Part of this is being inquisitive and challenging existing assumptions. asking questions helps Amanda develop insights, especially when she encounters problems in life. For this reason, Amanda enjoys reading self-improvement and spirtual books in times of crime. These books allow her to not only think outside of the box, but also to take an oversing and external viewpoint. Then, she can see things from the higher angle. One lesson Amanda has learned from her journey of self-discovery is that “ there is always a right moment for things to be and being patient can lead to immense rewards. ”

Amanda also describes herself as a productive “ road warranty. ” Traveling generates new ideas and different perspectives. In order to feel the cultural energy, Amanda likes to explore as many spots as possible while trusting alone. She says that “ curiosity is not only an important attitude on a journey, but also the starting point to lead you to a completely new territory. " The next stop on her continuing court is moving to New York this fall. " Fascated by the cultural richness and unlimited possibilities of New York, I believe the “ Big Apple ” will provide sufficient nullition for my life, promiscuity and soul. I am so extradited for this big move, ” says Amanda Exitedly. Once again, Amanda has shown us her readiness and willingness to plunge into the myterious "unknown."
