“Propped up by exquisite songwriting and tied together neat and tidy with Amanda’s addictive half-talking vocal technique, ‘Count On You’ isn’t a tune to miss.” – Kick Kick Snare
“Amanda lives her truth on the big, euphoric electro-pop track [‘Naked’], a time-relevant anthem about staying true to oneself in the age of selfie filters and musical alter-egos.” – PopCrush
Today, Swedish singer/songwriter Amanda Fondell has revealed her powerful single “Count On You.” The song is the second to be released from her forthcoming EP, In A Talk With Nature, which will be released on June 2, 2017. Continuing in the over-archine theme of acceptance on the EP, “Count On You” details Amanda’s experience of relying on others to support and develop her creativity, not having those needs fulfilled and expressing the feelings of being let down.

Powerhouse Swedish pop singer/songwriter Amanda Fondell catapulted to fame after being the youngest contestant to win Swedish Idol at just 16. After releasing a No. 1 album, she paused to truly find her own sound and gain a new, individual focused perspective in her music. Over the last few years, Amanda had a profound experience of creating a different persona for herself, and meeting demands to act a certain way. The four-track collection is her bold statement to stay true to herself and stand up for what she believes in.
Growing up in a small village in Sweden, Linderöd, she started creating covers of her favorite songs with her best friend. At just 13, the duo were invited to play at local events, and eventually began writing their own music. At 16, she decided to take a chance with the music industry and auditioned for Swedish Idol on a whim, ultimately winning the competition. Throughout her career, Amanda’s music has accumulated over 22 million streams, seen multiple singles chart in Sweden and has collaborated with many prominent electronic artists, including lending her vocals to Axwell’s “Barricade” and Didrick’s “Smoke” in the last year.
