Australian vocalist and songwriter Amandah Wilkinson


where deadly hooks and fearless, anthemic lyrics

ABOUT OPERATOR PLEASE HERE. Wilkinson was performing with the indie-pop outfit Operator Please, who were at the time, according to The Guardian, “the biggest thing to come out of Australia in years.”  As the band’s lead vocalist and guitarist, Wilkinson released two albums on Virgin/EMI, complete with top-ten singles and a coveted Aria award (think Aussie Grammys).  Wilkinson had also just signed to Sony ATV and was honing her top-lining skills working with some of the world’s biggest pop-producers. 

ABOUT BOSSY LOVE HERE. Perhaps best described by The Guardian as “Infectious, like Prince on a trampoline”, in two short years
Glasgow-based duo Bossy Love have built an army of fans utterly captivated by their savvy, RnB-inflected pop; Amandah eventually moved to Baillie Jr’s hometown of Glasgow, and Bossy Love was born. At radio, they secured plays across BBC Radio 1 and BBC 6Music, Beats 1, Triple J, Amazing and Kiss FM.  At home, Vic Galloway of BBC Radio Scotland professed “Bossy Love are one of the most exciting bands on the planet." Further endorsement came from streaming monolith Spotify, who rushed to support Bossy Love’s debut work, even adding them to their highly-prized New Music Fridays playlist, complete with 2.8 million followers. With awareness starting to spread outside of the music industry, Bossy Love’s music was playlisted by H&M, Topshop and Red Bull, and featured on Soccer AM and Made In Chelsea.  One of their songs soundtracked an ad campaign for a cult Japanese toy brand, while Glasgow International Film Festival commissioned and showcased their debut music video.  They launched the Whiplash EP with two sold-out launches at The Old Blue Last in Shoreditch, and Stereo in Glasgow. The Skinny called the four-tracker “fun and frenetic”, whilst The List proclaimed “into the gilded pantheon of bright escapist pop, we warmly welcome Whiplash.” Having already been compared to icons Prince, Quincy Jones and Michael Jackson, one can only imagine what lies in store for these two exceptional talents as they get ready to unleash their new music on the world. As The Herald said, "They light up the room and the sky and the city... Bossy Love is all you need." With this live show, Bossy Love have supported Kelis, Tank & The Bangas, Metronomy and Alma.  Following their sold-out, debut headline UK tour, Bossy Love were invited to perform at a host of festivals; including The Edinburgh Fringe, The Great Escape and Glastonbury, where their set was televised by the BBC.  Bossy Love were invited back by the BBC to perform on their Quay Sessions this summer, which was subsequently broadcast across BBC radio and TV channels. At The Great Escape Festival last year, Clash Magazine announced "Bossy Love steal the first day", while The 405 predicted; " the most memorable stage performance of the weekend... the festival might not be big enough for them next year."

With explosive, searing energy from the very first bar, on stage Amunda commands absolute presence with the ease, confidence and effortless charm that only comes from years spent honing her skills at the front of the world’s stages.  Whether singing or rapping, her vocal prowess is spellbinding.  She merges confessional lyrics with a playful, IDGAF attitude, to command the entire room as the relatable, yet audaciously alpha heroine we all want and need.
