    Member of the country group, The Wilkinson
    Sister of 'Tyler Wilkinson' (cv) Daughter of 'Steve Wilkinson' (cv)
    Amanda, her brother and her father hosted the 25th Canadian
    Country Music Awards
    Light brown hair and green eyes

    2005 CCMA Chevy Trucks Rising Star Award winner Amanda
    Wilkinson is a standout. As signature vocalist for The Wilkinsons,
    working with brother Tyler and dad Steve, she has achieved a
    level of success and recognition rarely attained by young
    recording artists. Now, 23 year-old Amanda is stepping forward
    with her self-titled debut solo recording on Universal South
    Records/Universal Music Canada.

    Amanda literally grew up singing in the family band and realized
    at the tender age of six that music made people happy - "That's
    when I knew what I wanted to do with my life."

    Her life, so far, includes, relocating with her family to Nashville in
    1997 and an ensuing appearance by The Wilkinsons at a Nashville
    nightclub that led to competitive bidding by seven top record labels
    to immediately sign the fledgling act. Also charting "26 Cents" as a
    top single from their first album and touring extensively, appearing
    on stage and television and garnering a loyal and devoted legion of
    fans in the process.

    Amanda recalls singing before 60,000 people shortly after the release
    of The Wilkinsons debut album; "for as far as I could see, everybody
    was singing along... I just about lost it."

    The Wilkinsons have also gathered an impressive collection of
    accolades from recording industry associations. The Juno Awards,
    The Canadian Country Music Awards, The Country Music Association,
    The Academy of Country Music and The Grammy Awards
    immediately, and have repeatedly, recognized the talent of Amanda
    and The Wilkinsons.

    Now, 24 year-old Amanda is stepping forward with a solo recording
    on Universal South Records.

    "We are so proud that Amanda decided to join us at Universal South.
    She's a wonderful singer with a huge future," comments Tim DuBois,
    Universal South Senior Partner.

    "I've been a major fan of Amanda's for years," says Tony Brown,
    Universal South Senior Partner and producer for Amanda's inaugural
    solo effort. "I'm excited about going into the studio with such a great
    singer. I think there's a lot of curiosity about what Amanda will do on
    her own project."

    That curiosity promises to be rewarded as Amanda vows to pursue
    heartfelt exploration of new sounds while remaining true to her
    Country roots. A fan of artists ranging from John Fogerty to Etta
    James, she possesses a true appreciation for the work of singers
    preceding her in popular music, a perspective fostered by dad,
    Steve, who exposed Amanda and brother Tyler to various styles
    of music throughout their young lives. Mix those musical influences
    up with a girl who loves to read Dean Koontz, J.R.R Tolkein and
    Shakespeare, listen to the ocean and savor the aroma of a good
    cup of coffee, and you just know her new collection of music will be
    sublime and passionate.

    Amanda's first single "No More Me & You" was a Top 15 hit at country
    radio and a #1 video on CMT Canada's Chevy Top 20. The second hit
    single currently Top 15 at radio is "It's Okay To Cry". The video was
    directed by award winning director Margaret Malandruccolo.

    Amanda's self-titled debut album is nominated for a 2006 Juno for
    Country Recording of the Year and her television series "The
    Wilkinsons" is now airing on CMT Canada...
