Amanda West – Mindfulness, Medicine & Magic

A native of California, Amanda West is an award winning singer-songwriter, recording artist, music teacher, and mother.

She began her career as a performing singer-songwriter when she was a teenager, after a serious car accident awakened her to the preciousness of life. After a second near death experience a few years later she acquired a  deeper understanding of the value of life.

With a degree in Cultural Anthropology, she approaches music as a part of our universal human birthright, playing an essential role in our experience of being alive.

Singing of birth, death, and the life in between, West’s music leaves the realm of entertainment to become a sacred form of healing art and an opportunity for connection.

She has toured extensively in the US and Europe and has self-produced six CD’s, including one, “Truth, Love & Understanding”, themed on marriage, and another, “More Than Anything,” themed on new motherhood. Her latest collection of work, titled “Consanguinity” explores themes around family, the experience of womanhood, and the blood ties that bind us together. It is currently in studio production.

In addition to performing and recording her own music, Amanda co-leads an organization called Womb Song, which offers prenatal, birth and post partum support for women through song. The history and science behind the benefits of singing into motherhood, are explored in a new chapter written by Amanda in the book “The Music of Motherhood: History, Healing and Activism”, released by Demeter Press in 2018.

Finding herself at the unusual intersection where music and motherhood meet, West has become an advocate for musician mothers, spearheading an online community called “Musician Mamas”, offering support and inspiration for other women on the path. She also leads community singing circles, offers music for rituals and life passages (such as weddings and memorials) and teaches voice, guitar and songwriting from her home in Santa Cruz, California and the surrounding areas.
