My guest on this Video Podcast is Amanda Lehmann who I first saw in 2011 playing the guitar and singing with Steve Hackett.
Amanda Lehman’s latest album, Innocence and Illusion, is a wonderful collection of nine original songs that showcase her talent as a singer and multi-instrumentalist.
Originally a classically trained pianist, Amanda found herself falling in love with the power of rock and the overdriven guitar. She is not constrained to any one musical genre and blends the boundaries throughout this album between folk, blues, rock and classical.
Work with Steve Hackett
From 2009 Amanda has been playing guitar and backing/lead vocals with Steve Hackett, joining the band on the UK 2009 tour, and continuing throughout 2010 – 2013.
Amanda also features on several of Steve Hackett’s albums and live DVDs, and regularly appears as a guest at some of his shows.
In this interview Amanda talks about her life, working with Steve Hackett and talks about each track on her new album Innocence and Illusion.
