Amanda & Des met when they worked together as Musicians in their 20’s
Amanda sang and performed from the age of 3 years and started playing guitar aged 10. She turned professional at the age of 19 and worked with a number of bands as lead vocalist.
Des began playing keyboard and guitar in his teens and set up a studio in his loft where he began writing and recording his own songs. He was in a number of bands until he teamed up with Amanda and they worked as a duo in London restaurants & Wine bars.
After settling down together in Oxfordshire they formed the successful band Cloud 9 and played for weddings and parties in prestigious venues all around the area ( Blenheim, Waddesdon, Randolph, Hilton Hotel Chain, Four Pillars Hotel Chain, Sulgrave Manor, Whittlebury Hall,Thames river boat Cruises) to name a few.
Amanda did her teacher training in the early 90’s and set up her children’s MusiKids business. She also worked as a music specialist in schools. In 2002 , following training at the voices foundation, she started teaching "Anyone can sing", which today is known as the Cloud 9 Feelgood Choir.
This was shortly followed by the building of the studio and both Des and Amanda began teaching on a one to one basis. Des teaching keyboard, guitar, song writing and recording and Amanda teaching Vocal and Guitar.
They are both passionate about what they do and cater for every level. They say “ We are truly privileged to be able to do what we love and get paid for it. Music is a gift that should be shared and we are truly blessed” .
What have we been upto during Lockdown?. Well, we did a video for charity, with all proceeds going to the NHS. This was written, played, recorded & videoed by us here in our Devon Studio. We hope you like it
Another video we created here in our studio during Lockdown is a lovely ballad from 1969 written by Lennon & McCartney with once again all instruments and vocals performed by us.
