Amanda Martinez is a Canadian singer and songwriter whose music exultingly blends her unique Mexican and South African roots with Latin soul. Her third and latest CD "Mañana" was helmed by GRAMMY-winning producer Javier Limón. Amanda's previous solo albums have earned her three Latin Jazz Artist of the Year nominations at Canada’s National Jazz Awards and a win for Best World Music at the Toronto Independent Music Awards.
Martinez has headlined at the legendary Blue Note jazz club in New York, at the 2010 FIFA World Cup Festivities in South Africa, and at the 2011 PanAmerican Games in Guadalajara. She also performed in a series of concerts during the 2015 Toronto Pan Am Games and served as the honourary co-chair of the Ignite program.
Amanda has worked as a radio host (launching Canada's JAZZFM91 Latin Jazz program), TV personality (BRAVO Arts & Minds, Star TV!) and actress (including Designated Survivor, Regnesis and Disney's Life with Derek). She also hosts and co-produces Ingredients for a Good Life to promote Mexico to Canadians.
Amanda joins me today to share the practical system she uses to organize and manage her cash flow as an artist while following her passion. She shares details about the people she works with, the resources she uses for realistic planning, and the effects of being organized -- both financially and in general -- to your well-being.
