Amanda Georgiadis aka Amanda Tenfjord  (her artistic name) lived the first years of her life in Ioannina (Greece), which she visits every summer. When she was 3 years old, her family moved to the small town of Tenfjord in Norway, which “gave” her her artistic surname. There, at the age of 5, Amanda began piano lessons and became an amateur musician, writing her first songs as a teenager. At the age of 18 she entered medical school, without giving up her love for music by participating in many festivals in her country.
