"My mission is to create and execute authentic musical experiences that people can deeply feel!"
Singer, songwriter, and actress is bringing southern rock n’ soul to Nashville
Amanda Page Cornett instantly found a passion for singing, writing, and performing before the age of 9. Born in Spartanburg, South Carolina, a mid-size city responsible for musicians, such as The Marshall Tucker Band and Pinky Anderson, she performed with many church, school, and community groups throughout her youth. After playing her first original song at the age of 13, Cornett knew that she had found her calling.
Upon graduating from the University of Florida (Go Gators), Cornett relocated to Nashville, TN. By continually refining her skills as an entertainer, vocalist, and songwriter, Cornett developed her unique “southern rock ‘n’ soul” sound, combining country, rock, blues, and soul.
Featured in the 2009 movie, "Junkyard Dog,” Cornett also has acted in various films, music videos, and commercials. In addition to working with Kirsti Manna’s Songwriter Girl Camp, Cornett has also written with many hit writers, including Mark Narmore, Spooner Oldham, Rich Fagan, Will Rambeaux, Greg Lawson (pop), and Kirsti Manna.
Cornett can be found volunteering with various organizations, such as Salkehatchie Summer Service, and participating in fundraisers for conditions such as Cystic Fibrosis and ALS. Her band, Almost Angels, features the sibling trio Sherry Peterson-Tenille, Shawn Peterson, and Randall Scott Peterson. Together, they have had the honor of playing with special guest musicians, including bassist Tim Lawter ( Marshall Tucker Band) as well as Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame drummer Artimus Pyle (Lynryd Skynryd).
Released in 2018, Cornett’s album Front Porch Rebel was recorded at NuttHouse Studio in Sheffield, AL and features songs written at Muscle Shoals’ famous Fame Studios (Aretha Franklin, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Allman Brothers, Etta James). Cornett and Almost Angels are currently preparing for a nationwide tour.
