Amanda Jones: When I was 17, I played my first official show beyond coffee shops, which was opening for R5! That was my start in the industry and I've been working hard ever since.
AL: Who is your biggest musical influence?
AJ: I absolutely adore Carly Rae Jepsen right now. She writes and sings these amazing pop songs that get stuck in your head for days. She's such a positive influence in the industry, which can be rare these days. Love her!
AL: Who would be your dream collaboration?
AJ: Hands down, working with Nick Jonas would make all of my dreams come true.
AL: If you could perform anywhere in the world, where would it be?
AJ: I would love to perform in South America! I have a lot of fans there and it would be cool to get to meet all of them face to face.
AL: What are some of your musical goals?
AJ: I'm dying to go on tour! That is my #1 goal for this next year. I also want to release more singles and become a strong songwriter through more co-writing!
