Born and raised in an Atlanta suburb, Amanda Gunnels always had a passion for music. She began taking classical piano lessons in elementary school, and quickly evolved into a multi-instrumentalist and songwriter by the end of high school. Though piano is still her main instrument, Amanda is proficient on bass guitar, acoustic guitar, drums, and vocals.
After moving to Los Angeles and attending Musician's Institute, Amanda decided to take her music and create My Dear Wendy, a songwriting project that continues to be the focus of her musical career. Her latest album, The Apple Falls Far Pt 1 & 2, is available for purchase -here- and you can stream all of her music on Spotify.
In 2018, she relocated to Nashville, Tennessee to continue songwriting and record her next album in Music City. It was there that she landed a sweet endorsement with Warm Audio. You can check out My Dear Wendy's latest video release with Warm Audio -here-.
