Atlanta born, LA trained, New Orleans transient, Nashville vibe, and now CA based: Amanda Gunnels is a songwriter who created her alter-stage ego, My Dear Wendy.  Her music blends memorable pop melodies with indie rock tones from influences such as Sara Bareilles, Hiam, Andrew McMahon, Regina Spektor, The Cranberries, and Larkin Poe.
