Amanda Bloom is a Neo-Classical pianist, composer and fusion vocalist based between Bangkok and Berlin who is fast gaining a steady following within the European Neo-classical piano world due for her fusion piano works.
As of June 2018 she became the first official Globally endorsed Artist of famed Klavins Piano Manufaktúra in Hungary. Klavins is famous for the invention of the Una Corda and the World’s first Vertical Concert Grand piano, the M450i which features in the music videos complimenting her upcoming album release “SIAM -Black White Grey Volume 1” which was recorded in only 2 days at Bakermoon Studios in Berlin.
Her live performances, which are often just herself at the piano, are known to leave audiences breathless, doused with the overwhelming passion that bleeds from her voice and fingers that command her black and white muse- The Pianoforte.
She began playing piano at the age of 3 perched upon telephone books for height, wrote her first piano Sonata at the age of 6 taking out first place in “The San Francisco Young Composers Awards” and by 18 made her compositional debut at The Sydney Opera House.
Her debut album “The History of Things to Come” was self-written, arranged and self-produced in Sydney, Australia and finished in Amman, Jordan in the Middle East with members of the Amman Symphony Orchestra.
It is an intoxicating symphonic mesh of her influences Martin Kohlstedt, Tori Amos, Rachmaninov, Sade and Maria Joao, and showcases her romantic and expressive mastery of the piano as her principal tool of expression.
Her second album “Atlas” was written in Phnom Penh, Cambodia with contributions from some of Asia’s top musicians including Lewis Pragasam and Conrad Keely across studios In Thailand and Malaysia.
Her work is intensely narrative, achingly romantic and incredibly aspirational. Themes of wanderlust, yearning for a mythical home, existential depression and lost self-love bleed with a heady mix of World and Neo Classical styles, but always with the powerful masterful piano at the helm.
In 2016 her improvisation "After Theory" was chosen by Nils Frahm for the official Piano Day playlist. This lead to the official release of subsequent improvisations on Sweden-based Neo-Classical label 1631 Recordings.
In January 2018, upon hearing her music through the Nils Frahm Piano Day compilations, Amanda was invited by Mastermind Experimental piano builder David Klavins to his workshop in Vác, Hungary to record tracks off her upcoming piano album on the M450i the world’s first Vertical Concert Grand piano, commissioned by Nils Frahm.
She spent 5 weeks in Hungary shooting various music videos and recording extensively on the M450i. After playing a Piano Day concert on the Una Corda with Bruno Sanfilippo, She is now the first ever Klavins endorsed Global Artist, representing Klavins within the Middle East and South-East Asia regions.
Her upcoming third album is a collection of 9 piano pieces supported by fusion layers of ethereal vocals. The album is thematic, intensely melodic and haunting, showcasing her natural mastery of timeless melodies inspired by her primary piano influences Michael Nyman, Chopin and Yann Tiersen.
Her music has been used in various Advertising campaigns across Asia and her diverse live performances include a children’s hospital in Nablus Occupied Palestine to 40,000 at MTV Exit for Human Trafficking Cambodia.
