Hi, I’m Amanda Wicks, and I’ve been writing about music for nearly a decade. I’ve covered local scenes, renowned artists, and all manner of things in between. While I’ve been fortunate to do this for some of the best national outlets, alt-weeklies, and music brands out there, I’ve missed having a space to write more personally about certain discoveries. Welcome to The Sound Also Rises, where I can share the music that’s caught my ear.
