Hi, I’m Amanda Wicks. I’ve been writing about music for over a decade.

I’ve covered renowned artists, local scenes, and all manner of things in between. While I’ve been fortunate to contribute to some of the best national outlets, alt-weeklies, and music brands, I’ve missed having a space to write more personally about certain discoveries.

Welcome to The Sound Also Rises, where I explore: 

  • Memories (Gatefold)
  • Songs (Needle Drops)
  • Artists (Liner Notes)

Thanks for reading.
