Amanda St John Releases her Inspirational and Uplifting New Single ‘Grow’
“What happens in this life will not break me, of this I know. What happens in this life,
I will face it, I will choose to grow.”
2016 was a break-out year for the Northern Ireland bred singer Amanda St John and one she will remember fondly. Not only did she release her debut album Grow to wide-spread critical acclaim, the tunesmith embarked on her first, hugely successful, full length solo tour and also became one of the most talked about acts on the local festival circuit. This along with rave reviews and worldwide airplay (including extensive BBC & RTE plays) St John is keen to strike while the iron is hot, thus the performer released the title track of her album as a single on February 10 to coincide with her UK & Irish Tour dates. The soul-steeped, inspirational ballad is sure to kick off 2017 in style.
Already a firm live favourite with her fans (and one of her debut’s many highlights), spine-tingling emotive vocals, smooth organs and stirring brass drive the song and the lyrics add a welcome injection of positivity to proceedings, as Amanda explains.
“The song ‘Grow’ is about facing a very difficult period, observing the situation and vowing to fight back rather than letting it define you. It’s a very hopeful, motivational message. You have a choice (regardless of your circumstances) of how you want your life to go; even though it may take incredible strength and courage, it is possible to heal and grow as a person. The song resonates deeply with people at live gigs and I have found that it has been quite inspirational for some.”
Sure to find a place in the hearts of music lovers across the globe, ‘Grow,’ thoroughly deserves it’s time to shine in the spotlight and expect Amanda St John to make even more new fans and friends over the months ahead.
