In The Spotlight

Amanda Mae – “Shoulda Known”

Born as Amanda Sobers, this Toronto-based Canadian singer and songwriter has been singing since she was 5 years young, both in choir as in musicals. She continued performing in coffee houses while she was at university. Drawing inspiration from the likes of Beyoncé, Christina Aguilera and Chaka Khan, she’s forged a mix of R&B, pop and soul. She released her debut single “Fool 4 U” in 2018.

Lyrically chronicling a passionate past relationship, that resulted in betrayal and infidelity, her new single captures both the sensuous beginning as the melancholic ending. With her soothing, heartfelt vocals taking centre-stage, her story is accompanied by a mellow, jazzy rhythm and smooth synths. Shaping an intense soundscape, which is sultry with a dark edge, this R&B gem is a thing of beauty.
