Amanda has always been involved with music in some form from a very young age. She always migrated toward opportunities to participate and learn more with a family that also embraced her talents and musical desires. This led to a chance to follow this love into college learning from instructors in theory, performance and instrumental coaching. Though she changed her major later as her desire to help others and provide care for others grew stronger, she still took music with her as she studied nursing. She would sing to calm her patients and ease their anxiety and she knew she'd always have to be part of music in some way. Around 2011 after a chance encounter, Amanda was approached by a major record label to venture into the other side of music. She knew that there was a lot to learn before she could confidently be successful in the music industry. For the next decade, she was fortunate enough to have that same person that approached her be a mentor to her. She dabbled during that time with booking and management but never really took on anything major. In late 2020, she began building relationships with venue owners, cultivating what would be an important next step in her venture. From there she began working with a few bands, always ensuring that they were just as professional as they were talented. In late 2021, she finally gave what she had been doing a name, Mandalyn Entertainment. Since then, she's hit the ground hard branching out into other states in the southeastern US, building the brand that she held so close to her heart. She made a promise to never be anything but transparent with her clients and to never view them as dollar signs; only to work to make her artists' dreams feel a little closer than they were the day before.
