Amanda (Mandy) Nadeau’s love for music began at a young age growing up in Presque Isle, Maine.

Throughout those same years she could often be heard in chorus or theatre singing as a soprano. Today she doesn’t play as much as she used to, but believes in the impact music can have on a child’s life. Currently living in Bangor, Maine working for Darling’s Auto Group as Creative Content Specialist. She can often be caught singing rock, indie, folk and even some show tunes at the office.
