Amanda Ayala – “Rags to Riches” single
“Paper town, oh you’ve got to get out. Move to the city that’s what it’s all about. And get a good job so you’re well off and live for the weekend until it restarts again. ‘Cause we just want to be famous, A-list, on the cover of magazines. Flying through New York to L.A., livin’ the Hollywood dream. And talk about our love life in tabloids, but I guess it’s the price you pay. When you wanna just make it be A-list, trade the rags for the rich and the fame.” – lyrics
‘Rags to Riches’ tells a heartfelt tale about a young woman who feels a nine-to-five life isn’t a life she wants to live. What she wants is a credit card with infinite swipes, an Off-White shirt, and a Hermès purse. But her expensive wishlist doesn’t stop there. Later, she revealed, “I need a Rolex watch to flex what I got. Give me the fancy cars and private jets. Don’t wanna just scrape by to pay my rent. A Calabasas home, the French Château. Give me a diamond ring and stacks to blow.”
‘Rags to Riches’ contains a wishful narrative and ear-pleasing vocals that will resonate well with fans of Kelly Clarkson, Taylor Swift, BLÜ EYES, and Love You Later. The likable tune possesses saturated drums and guitar-laden instrumentation flavored with an alternative pop vibration. Furthermore, “Rags to Riches” was recorded at Record House Studios in Queens, New York.
“‘Rags to Riches’ is essentially a daydream about wanting to escape the normal reality of a 9-5 life and become something greater. For all the creatives and dreamers out there wanting to make something [of] themselves, while poking fun at all the materialistic things that come with fame.” – Amanda Ayala explained
Amanda Ayala made her first major music breakthrough as a contestant on NBC’s Emmy Award-winning show, The Voice. Her first performance on the show was a rendition of “Mississippi Queen” by Mountain turning 3 out of the 4 judges’ chairs. Adam Levine, Pharrell Williams, and Blake Shelton competed with one another to get this talented artist on their team. Blake Shelton praised her raspy vocals while Pharrell loved her “beautiful tone.” With much deliberation, Amanda chose Team Adam.
Throughout the process of being on “The Voice,” Amanda was able to work with the legendary John Fogerty on “The Voice.” Her performances garnered attention from stars such as Leslie West and Brad Paisley. Her singles “Mississippi Queen” and “Edge of Seventeen” debuted within the Top 100 iTunes Rock Chart, which is a major milestone for an upcoming artist.
Amanda was most recently on Amazon Prime’s Television show “Who Will Rock You?” Season 2. The show features celebrity judges, including nationally syndicated radio host Kerri Kassem and rock icon Dee Snider. Also, Amanda placed in the Top 12 as a quarterfinalist in the competition.
