Blue-in-Green:PODCAST #133: Amanda Whiting

Welcome to Episode #133 of the Blue-in-Green:PODCAST which this week sees Imran connect with the revered harpist, composer, author and educator, Amanda Whiting.

Already an established artist with album releases through Jazzman Records, Amanda's boundless talents have really risen to prominence this year with the last six months generating some incredible successes.  The 'Lost in Abstraction Remixes' EP came at the tail-end of 2023 through the Scrimshire-helmed Albert's Favourites label and was swiftly followed by her collaborative First Word Records release with Don Leisure, 'Beyond the Midnight Sun'.   Recognising her immeasurable talent, First Word were keen to induct Amanda into the label's hallowed halls recently releasing her amazing project, 'The Liminality of Her'. Three projects that go a long way in demonstrating the scope of Amanda's boundless skill and talents.

We were thrilled to have secured time with Amanda as a feature presentation for our International Jazz Day celebrations (28th April 2024) so you can now catch the complete unedited conversation here.  During our chat, we discuss the aforementioned three projects and her journey to jazz via the harp.

We'd love to extend a gratious thank you to Amanda for her time and for gifting us with a genuinely fascinating conversation.
