ACCESSIBLE POP BY MULTI-ARTIST AMANDA MITTZ AT THE PITCH FOR NEW ARTISTS

Born in Santos (SP), Amanda Mittz describes herself as a pop multi-artist. Nothing could be more fitting, after all she is a singer, songwriter, producer and researcher of cultural accessibility, being one of the first artists to make video clips with audio description.

With a pop sound with references to the 80s, Amanda talks about her style and first album. "Currently my style is electronic pop, I say that because it may be that tomorrow I change my mind and do something different. But today I like to be like that. I started singing as a child, but it took me a while to find myself artistically and have a consistent work like I have today. I needed to lose the sight of one eye and almost the other to understand that the pop I had to make is accessible pop. O Acessowhich is my debut album, has a strong new wave and synth pop sound. I believe it was from listening to Marina Lima and Marcos Valle so much! The lyrics talk about my experiences as a woman and PWD. It's a very intimate record but at the same time I wanted to bring these songs in a happy and danceable way, "says Amanda

Recorded during the pandemic, Acesso traz diversas parcerias que incluem o trio Pássaro Hippie e o produtor paulista Ivan Batucada. O disco conta também com a participação especial do cantor recifense Romero Ferro na ótima faixa Se Você Quiser.

Quando perguntada como recebeu a notícia de ter sido selecionada para participar do PITCH DE NOVOS ARTISTAS, amanda responde: “Eu recebi essa notícia com muito amor! Vários amigues mandraram mensagem porque era uma vaga muito disputada. Nem acreditei! Mas isso serve também como uma validação de tantos anos de esforço pra ter um trabalho como esse. Já me sinto presenteada. Quero mostrar a versatilidade do meu trabalho. Durante a pandemia me aprofundei no estudo de live performance e hoje também faço meu show sozinha. Eu tive a oportunidade de gravar um show ao vivo do meu álbum Acesso que ainda não foi lançado. Foi o resultado do projeto que fiz para a Natura Musical. Quero apresentar com exclusividade na SIM alguns trechos e trechos do show solo que gravei para o projeto Nave Sonora”.

And she concludes talking about the opportunity of this presentation: "I am a fledgling artist so having this opportunity to show my work to so many professionals in the music industry is very important to me. I want to open doors and create bridges through this pitching. I feel that this is the moment for an artist like me, woman and PWD, to occupy the places that for so long we were denied. I feel privileged to have this space to talk about a work that makes me very proud".

Good luck to Amanda Mittz!
