Originally from Perth, Western Australia, Amanda Merdzan visited New York recently to play eight gigs over the course of three months and we just so happened to meet at a competition where people humped the air! It was a pleasure. Give her a listen at http://www.myspace.com/amandamerdzan My favorite song is “To Know You”

From the Guardian (UK): Chicago nanny Vivian Maier died in 2009, leaving behind 100,000 negatives that no one but she had ever seen. Her work was discovered by chance, and now the photographs she took on her days off are being hailed as ‘ranking up there’ with the best in 20th-century street photography (link added).
