Amanda Opelt is a singer-songwriter whose style is rooted in the re-emerging Americana/folk style. Deeply influenced by the surroundings of her childhood and young adulthood, she sings stories that reflect life and culture of small town southern America, particularly the mountains of Appalachia. She began playing guitar at age 13 and almost immediately took an interest crafting her own melody and lyrics. After several years of living and working in Nashville, she moved to the mountains of North Carolina and has found a home in the strong community of artists and musicians there.
