Amanda Leigh Moore was born in Nashua, NH, on April 10, 1984. After her family moved to the suburbs of Orlando, FL, she took an interest in theater and starred in several local productions. Moore also began performing the National Anthem at
Orlando-based sporting events, thus raising her profile in a town populated by music executives and producers. Epic Records took notice and brought her aboard their roster in 1999, hoping to penetrate the teen pop scene with a superstar of their own.

Moore's debut album, So Real, arrived in December 1999, just several months after the multi-platinum releases of Britney
Spears' ...Baby One More Time and Christina Aguilera's self-titled debut. Although the album spawned a Top 40 hit with "Candy" and went platinum within three months, such success was trivial compared to the overwhelming popularity of teen pop's biggest stars. Epic responded in May 2000 by releasing I Wanna Be with You, a retooled version of Moore's debut with remixed tracks and scant new material. The title track peaked at number 24 on the singles charts, giving Moore another hit but failing to gain her admittance into pop's inner circle.

A proper sophomore effort, 2001's self-titled Mandy Moore, suffered a similar fate, yet Moore bounced back the following year by landing a leading role in A Walk to Remember, a popular film adaptation of Nicholas Sparks' book. Additional film roles followed in 2003, as did the release of Coverage. Featuring covers of songs by Carole King, Joe Jackson, Joni Mitchell, and Carly Simon, the album represented a leap forward for the maturing singer. Sales were low, however, prompting Epic to drop Moore from their roster. To fulfill her contract, the label released several compilations during the following years; meanwhile, Moore launched a clothing line and focused on her acting career, turning in humorous performances in American Dreamz and the indie film Saved! She also made forays into television with roles in

Entourage, The Simpsons, and Scrubs. Although Moore had originally signed with Sire Records after leaving Epic's roster, no albums appeared during her two-year stint with the label. She ultimately left Sire in May 2006 and partnered with EMI, who allowed her more artistic control. For the first time in her career, Moore began writing original material, collaborating with the likes of Lori McKenna, Rachael Yamagata, the Weepies, and Chantal Kreviazuk. She then decamped to upstate New York in late 2006 to record Wild Hope, which received a warm critical reception upon its release in 2007. Subsequent tours alongside the likes of Yamagata, Ben Lee, Paula Cole, and Vanessa Hudgens helped Moore reestablish herself as an adult artist, and she returned two years later with Amanda Leigh, a reflective album that took its title from Mandy's original name. Co-written and produced by power pop powerhouse Mike Viola, the album was also informed by Moore's fondness for Todd Rundgren, Joni Mitchell and CSNY.
