Biography

Llore is a folk faerie songstress who weaves tales and
creates musical portals to transport listeners to other
worlds. Soaring vocals and careful storytelling dance
among precise guitar picking, autoharp, mandolin, and
sparkling electric guitar riffs. In 2017, Llore released her
debut EP, Fictional Creature, “a folk endeavor that
transports the listener to a quiet fireside in the woods,
listening to stories, passed down through generations, that
seek to captivate, fascinate and frighten. These four tracks,
the work of songwriter Amanda Collins, could haunt the
ruins of ancient castles and mansions, long abandoned and
now covered in moss.” - Meg Fair of the Pittsburgh City
Paper. Llore is originally from the forests and rivers of
Pennsylvania, and now resides in Los Angeles where you
can find her playing and singing.

Her songs are influenced by fantasy, mythology, folklore
and the idea of stories passed down and transformed
through generations of retelling through the art of song.
They are often influenced by her spiritual journey while
remaining grounded in this world. Musical influences
include Fairport Convention, Joan Baez, and Vashti Bunyan,
to name a few.

This past year Llore has been active in Los Angeles playing
at local venues including Hotel Cafe and KXLU radio station.
She is continuing to write new music and is currently
growing her project into a full band.
Her earliest memories of music are of playing kitchen pots while singing with her dad who later taught her to play guitar at the age of 15. She began writing songs a few years later and continues to do so now, forever growing in her craft.
