Amanda Bloom

Born in Adelaide, Australia. Composed first piano sonata at 6, having begun classical piano studies at the age of 3, she debuted at the Sydney Opera House at 18. She combines the structural and melodic integrity of the Baroque and Classical period with the power of modern rock with suggestions of celtic folk and uses it as a musical canvas on which to elude to political, social and psychological messages.

Born in Adelaide, Australia. Composed first piano sonata at 6, having begun classical piano studies at the age of 3, she debuted at the Sydney Opera House at 18. She combines the structural and melodic integrity of the Baroque and Classical period with the power of modern rock with suggestions of celtic folk and uses it as a musical canvas on which to elude to political, social and psychological messages. A renaissance of melody and ideas.

Underwhelmed by the oversaturation of ego and empty characters found in the western music industry, Bloom, after years of writing and recording her debut album in Sydney, fled to Jordan in the Middle East where she discovered a jewel of a producer in Kassim Sabounchi with whom she recorded the vocals for “Beautiful Beautiful” and “The History of Things to Come” and enlisted the talents of musicians from the Amman Symphony Orchestra to feature on her album. “I can’t stand the vacuity of the endless self promotion found in the industry today. It is spiritually destructive and unsettling. Hence why I love recording here in Jordan, against a backdrop of melodies doused in thousand-year culture and national confidence. Musicians respect melody here. Not celebrity.” She also learned Arabic, adding to her French, Spanish and Italian, had a forbidden love affair, performed for children in Nablus, Palestine and met Rana Husseini, one of the worlds leading women’s rights activists at the forefront of the battle against honor crimes. « hide
