Amanda Richards and Ashia on The Outside World
Amanda Richards was once heard by host Daniel playing on the downtown streets at the tender age of 19. Her voice, material and delivery belie her years--she has a bluesy feel of someone who has been around the block--and she has come a long way since then. Her upcoming performance at The Aladdin (headlining!--for the 2nd time there) is on Feb. 20.
She is joined here by the formidable Ashia Grzesik on cello (who will also accompany Amanda at The Aladdin), and, as you will hear, Ashia has a few of her own gems up her sleeve as she enthralls us with a couple of solo numbers. Ashia moved to Portland in October from Las Vegas, where she played in the Cirque du Soleil.
