Amanda Wilkinson was born January 17, 1982 in Belleville, Ontario and was raised in nearby Trenton, Ontario. Her passion for singing began early. She recalls being inspired by her dad Steve performing in bands, and his singing to her when she was very young, instilling in her a love of music. As the years went on Amanda joined forces with her father Steve and brother Tyler to form The Wilkinsons. In 1997 The entire Wilkinson family moved to Nashville to pursue a career in music, and soon almost every major record company in Nashville offered The Wilkinsons a record deal. Their first single "26 Cents" was an instant classic and became their first number one record and propelled their album to Gold certifications in both the United States and Canada.
In 2004 Amanda decided to step out on her own for the first time and signed a solo record deal with record company Universal South. The album that followed would produce several hit singles including "No More Me and You" and "It’s Ok To Cry". While Amanda still remains an active member of The Wilkinsons, she continues to record as a solo artist.
