is an American recording artist, songwriter, and vocal producer based out of the Bay Area and Los Angeles, California. Born and raised in a small suburb outside of San Francisco, she penned her first song by the age of seven with her father, also a musician and songwriter. She wrote, produced, and released her first E.P. independently by the age of thirteen.
Shortly after, she joined an all female pop vocal group based out of Boston. The group gained substantial industry buzz, but parted ways in 2002. Mandy launched new solo efforts, and promoted her original material during acoustic performances in New York City rock clubs such as The Bitter End, CBGB's, and The Mercury Lounge. She was a featured performer for the rock trio, Lights Resolve, touring with The Used, Shiny Toy Guns, and Panic! At The Disco, also appearing at major music festivals such as The Bamboozle, and CMJ.
In 2010, she released her first dance/pop single with American house DJ, Ian Carey. After reaching over a million views on YouTube, and appearing on various major compilation albums, she released a single with one of Germany's top DJ duos, The Michael Mind Project. The single charted on top 40 radio and the DJ dance charts in Europe. After the massive exposure of her previous releases, she landed a track on Alex Gaudino's album, Doctor Love, alongside Kelly Rowland, Jordin Sparks, and Jay Sean.
In the midst of her overseas success, Mandy moved back to Los Angeles to work with hip-hop producer, Just Blaze, on a track for Eminem's highly anticipated album, Recovery. Soon after, Mandy was enlisted to perform background vocals for Kanye West, Rick Ross, Jay-Z, and Charlie Wilson.
In December 2013, Mandy signed her first major publishing deal with Atlantic Records and Warner/Chappell Music. She currently resides in the Bay Area and Los Angeles, writing for major recording artists, as well as the TV and film industry.
