Winning hearts and minds with her words and catchy melodies, Mandy performed original songs around inner Sydney, in a duo with Brian Mann, in the early 1990s. She was also in a jazz covers band.
Working as a web-producer for The Australian Financial Review, she wrote national features for the NSW Sun Herald and The Sunday Age, published How to Say I do with Allen and Unwin and published three books to help young people learn how to write. In the midst of lockdown, she started working with producer Keefe West, and over zoom, they wrote and recorded Mandy’s forthcoming velvet soul album.
With a voice like velvet - soulful yet pure, Mandy is a born storyteller with lyrics that are clever and will strike a chord across the generations.
She says, "I want to write music that moves audiences and makes people move."
