Biography

Amanda Wilson is a singer in the UK House music act Freemasons. As part of the act she has scored two major UK hit singles, one of which went on to success in several European charts and the Billboard Dance Chart.

Background

Amanda provided lead vocals on the track “When We Were In Love” which made it to the semi final of “The Great British Song Contest 1998” to select the UK’s entry for the Eurovision song contest. Amanda has a four octave vocal range and her vocals have been compared to Mariah Carey, and indeed it was her vocals on Mariah style ballads that she had co-written which first brought her vocal skills to the attention of music industry A&R. However most of Amanda’s success has been found as a guest vocalist working with dance acts.
With the Freemasons

Amanda has provided lead vocals on many tracks on the Freemasons’ album Shakedown. It is believed that The Freemasons discovered Wilson while singing at a karaoke bar in the Méditerranée. Her biggest hit was the Freemasons track, “Love On My Mind”, which reached number 11 in 2005 on the official UK Top 40. The song samples vocals from “This Time Baby” by Jackie Moore and lyrics from “When The Heartache Is Over” by Tina Turner. Amanda’s vocals on the track were electronically lowered in pitch to blend in with the sampled vocals of Jackie Moore.
