Amanda Garrigues is a folksy singer/songwriter from Gainesville who’s credited with all sorts of “kind of” awards that most people will never know about, as well as a thread of a relationship with Lynda Stipe (Michael’s brother). Born and raised in the Methodist church, her material has a spiritual basis with album titles including Spirit Act and a self-started record label called Average Sinner Records. With sentiments about herself on her own Web site that say, no matter where you discover her music, “you know immediately that you’re the recipient of a gift,” she carries that “I’m right and you know it” swagger utilized by Ani DiFranco, in case you’re into that sort of thing.
