Biography

Amanda Marks, also known as Violin Girl, is a professional electric violinist, vocalist, and recording artist who has graced the stages of music festivals, clubs, and venues nationally and overseas. She takes tracks, often being mixed by DJs, and improvises over them on the electric violin, thus infusing electronic music with live instrumentation and lots of love.

Amanda's performance experience runs the gamut from transformational festivals like Burning Man, Lucidity Festival, Envision Festival, and Northern Nights Music Festival; international appearances in Amsterdam, Costa Rica, Peru, Mexico, and Canada; and high-profile venues like the Mixmag Lab Los Angeles, Public Works, Couture, King King, and 1015 Folsom. She currently holds residencies at Drai's Beach Club in Las Vegas and Spin Nightclub in San Diego.

Her first official release comes as a featuring in Deep Tribe's remix of Freddy Be's "Holding Back," which was released on the Perspectives Digital label, reached #76 on the Top 100 charts, and has been supported by the likes of Darin Epsilon, Maya Jane Coles, Soul Button, Matt Darey, Oliver Schories, Erin Sharoni of DJ Mag USA, and more.

Not only is Amanda a rapidly rising star in the music scene, but she has grown her performance business with showcases at weddings, corporate events, and other types of private parties. Her ability to play by ear allows her to learn, in a matter of minutes, absolutely any song that clients or guests might want to hear! Her clients include Nordstrom’s, The Four Seasons, The Palazzo, Caesar’s Palace, The Bellagio, The Marriott, The Cromwell, Green Valley Ranch, The Godfrey, TechCrunch, BioTech, Wilson Dow Group, AWG, Milhouse Engineering, and more.
