AMANDA SOFIA
AMANDA SOFIA IS A TALENTED SINGER/SONGWRITER FROM PORT SAINT LUCIE, FLORIDA. SHE STARTED SINGING AT A VERY YOUNG AGE AND LATER WAS A MEMBER OF THE FORMER CHRISTIAN BANDS, 'FAITH FACTOR' AND 'GODWIRED'. IN 2008, I HAD THE PLEASURE OF DIRECTING HER & THE GODWIRED BAND MEMBERS IN A MUSIC VIDEO FOR A SONG CALLED 'FALLING' WRITTEN BY GUITARIST AERIK NAGEL. IN 2010, AMANDA DID SOME WRITING OF HER OWN AND ONE OF HER FIRST SONGS WAS A SONG CALLED 'BURIED TRACES'. AS SOON AS I HEARD THE SONG, IT WAS IMMEDIATELY DECIDED TO FILM A MUSIC VIDEO. AFTER SEVERAL SCHEDULING AND LOCATION ISSUES, THE VIDEO WAS FINALLY FINISHED AND WAS RELEASED IN 2011 VIA THE INTERNET. THE MUSIC VIDEO WAS CO-DIRECTED AND EDITED BY JACK MENDES OF JVM VIDEO PRODUCTIONS AND MYSELF. GUEST STAR IS ACTOR/MUSICIAN DYLAN FERNANDEZ. AMANDA IS CURRENTLY PERFORMING IN THE BAND, 'RELAYER'.
