Amanda Ekberg (SE)
Amanda Ekberg is an artist and songwriter based in Örebro. She just released her first single ”When Elephants Cry”, the song that recently won the local competition P4 Nästa in Örebro. Her songs are performed with piano and vocals and it’s not unusal for the audience to relate her music to artists as Björk and Regina Spektor. The music commutes between raw and direct and then suddenly become soft and fragile. The thing that keeps it togehter is the ingenious harmonies combined with an accompanient by the piano which at some points makes you think of classical piano music.
