Guest Biography


Born and raised in an Atlanta suburb, Amanda Gunnels always had a passion for music. She began taking classical piano lessons in elementary school, and quickly evolved into a multi-instrumentalist and songwriter by the end of high school. Though piano is still her main instrument, Amanda is proficient on bass guitar, acoustic guitar, drums, and vocals.

After moving to Los Angeles and attending Musician’s Institute, Amanda decided to upgrade her music and create My Dear Wendy, a songwriting project that continues to be the focus of her musical career.   Her latest album, The Apple Falls Far Pt 1, is available everywhere now!

In 2018, she relocated to Nashville, Tennessee to continue songwriting and record her next album in Music City. It was there that she landed an endorsement with Warm Audio, a British microphone and gear company. You can also hear her songs “Man Down” “I Can’t Wait”  and “Enough (Single Version)” on a few episodes of The Young and the Restless.

Amanda has followed her dream all around the country, and now has settled back in her favorite State, California. My Dear Wendy continues to release new music, and Pt 2 of The Apple Falls Far will be released this Fall.
