Amanda Markley Releases Christmas Mashup Video Treat for the Holidays

Seattle-based pop singer/songwriter Amanda Markley has just dropped a Christmas treat for her fans with her spirited and soulful mashup of two holiday classics, “Do You Hear What I Hear?” and “O Come All Ye Faithful,” which can be seen here.

For the video, Amanda paired up with friend and fellow musician DJ Brennan to record this fun rendition of the two songs. The video was produced and edited by Brennan. Here is what Amanda had to say about the video:

“I’m so glad I got to meet up with DJ to do this Christmas song. I first met DJ on my “Just The Beginning” tour this summer, and he now lives in the Seattle area. I hope it helps get everyone in the Christmas spirit!”.” – Amanda Markley

>Amanda Markley’s songwriting career began after a spinal injury that caused her to pull back from her passion of horseback riding. Amanda learned to cope by writing her emotions, an inspiration for her new passion in music and the lyrics of her first songs.  Now able to ride again, Markley strives to inspire and give others courage to follow their own dreams. The singer often plays rich and emotionally raw acoustic sets that are a staple of her home-state’s local coffeehouse vibe. When not performing in an intimate setting, Amanda rocks the stage with a full band and is a regular performer at the Hard Rock Cafe,  El Corazon, Chop Suey, and other iconic music houses in the Seattle area, sharing the stage with artists such as Aaron Carter, Tyler Ward, William Beckett, and more. Markley is currently in the studio with Chase Manhattan to collaborate on and produce her upcoming EP at Rainmaker Studios. The first single from the EP, “Jealousy” was released in 2015 in a partnership with Cadence & Cause, sending all proceeds of single downloads to the charitable cause of rescuing homeless animals and finding them homes. Manhattan produced a music video for “Jealousy” which premiered exclusively with PopWrapped. The duo recently released a chilling cover of Joy Williams’ track “What A Good Woman Does,” highlighting their time together in the studio. The EP is set to release early 2016 with a slew of new tracks, videos, and more on the way.
