Amanda describes her new Walking In Twos EP as music that’s “Mid-tempo, Chill-out, Electronica, Pop/Rock and World music, just a few of the cultural vibes and roots that add to the sophistication in the songwriting with lyrics for peace and equality. “I began to write songs for the record with genres of music and lyrics that I love and listen to. World instruments, trip-hop beats and flute melodies blend with my ‘pop-rock’ element of contemporary songwriting. I was influenced by Stephen Stills Feed The People song; Bob Marley’s protest songs and lyrics, Massive Attack’s down tempo beats and Jack Johnsons laid back groove style. Listening to new Arabic music from bands like Meshwar, Omar Offendum, reggae band for peace from Syria and World flute melodies from artists like Nicholas Gunn and Fairuz have brought me to a newly developing sound that really speaks to what I believe lyrically and instrumentally”. The pulse of this record is derived from Amanda’s love of World music. Also appearing on Amanda’s release is Iconic Singer Songwriter/guitarist Stephen Stills, who greatly enhanced the title song with his unique bluesy guitar performance and the Aeta children of Haduan Village in the Philippines.

Upcoming Full-Length Album Renditions To Be Released Early 2017

San Francisco – Karney is a San Francisco-based singer/songwriter that has been making great music for many years, performing across the US and collaborating with many talented and notable artists. Keeping her mind on social justice and positive messages, her lyrical content offers a sardonic and sometimes straight forward approach to many of the issues facing people today, with a message of hope resonating throughout every song she writes. Karney is digitally releasing a handful of new songs between August and the end of 2016 in support of her upcoming full-length album Renditions, due out in early 2017.

While Karney’s eclectic songwriting is based in solid musicianship, her new material echoes a diverse set of musical influences. She will release a series of digital EP’s, featuring a few different renditions of her new songs on each, through her own independent record label, Karney Music & Sound. The second in the series, Singles Vol. 2: Restless Wind w/ Same Song, was released on November 18th, 2016. This digital EP will include 2 versions of the track “Restless Wind” ranging from a solo acoustic to a full rock band version with drums, bass, electric guitars, overdubs and top notch production. The release will also include solo acoustic to a full rock band version of “Same Song.”

Some songs in the upcoming series will feature additional remixes rendered by some of Karney’s producer colleagues and friends, exploring Karney’s music in an assortment of other styles. These releases will culminate in a full album of recordings titled Renditions, which has a tentative release of March 2017.
