AMANDA RAYE
Amanda Raye
If there is one thing you could say about Amanda Raye, it would be that the expression of her heart flows beautifully through her music. In every way, her voice, her lyrics and her heart are tightly wound into every note. Amanda Raye is a local singer/songwriter from St. Louis, Missouri. After spending much of her youth in school choir’s training as a lower register female vocalist, she has brought her talents to the forefront in a powerful way.
Using her love of words and music in unison to express powerful emotions has become something of an art form she is proud to practice. 

Recently, Amanda has been working on a tribute to her late father, “Daddy’s Song” with Rich Mossman and Mark Dunn assisting in the production, she is looking forward to releasing this single in the very near future. She now embarks on the road to her very first EP with drummer, producer and engineer, Rich Mossman. Stating that it will be, “her heart woven into her music,” she has set forth on that path and promises to blaze a trail sure to be noticed.
LESLIE SANAZARO
Leslie Sanazaro
Singer, songwriter, and pianist Leslie Sanazaro released her first EP Stars in the Attic in 2006 and embarked on a 20-city tour through the US and Canada, performing and raising awareness for pressing local environmental issues. Her second release On Your Roof (2008) was recorded in Nashville by producer David Browning. That year yielded a nomination by the St. Louis Riverfront Times for Best Singer-Songwriter and over 70 shows in Seoul, South Korea.

The first full-length album release came in 2011. Titled First We Cry, Then We Laugh, the 11-song collection highlights issues confronting women survivors of human trafficking in Cambodia and raised funds for AFESIP, an organization which provides therapy, education, skills training, and medical attention for young women escaping sex trafficking in Asia. She performed several shows in Cambodia in 2009 for trafficking survivors and organizations there working to help victims.

In July of 2016, after the shooting death of Philandro Castille by a police officer, Sanazaro composed a song in support of the Black Lives Matter movement. The song, "Now!" was recorded in front of a live audience just a few days later at Gaslight Studio in St. Louis with a host of over 20 local St. Louis musicians who showed up in support, learned the song on the spot, and recorded together, all in one night. 

The following month, with a volunteer camera crew, a video was shot in support of the new song. This new song and its video will be released at a community release rally in support of Black Lives Matter on Thursday, September 22 at 7pm at Yaqui's on Cherokee Street in St. Louis, where much of the video was recorded.

Leslie currently resides in St. Louis, MO and performs as a solo artist and with her band.
