Mandy Rowden

Mandy is a lifelong musician, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and generally nice gal who has traveled all over the US playing original music, guitar, bass, fiddle, keys, drums, mandolin, and just about anything else. She grew up playing classical violin and piano but eventually decided playing music in bars was a lot more fun, so that’s what she does! In 2007 Mandy combined her love of music, people, wine, and teaching and formed an Austin institution, Girl Guitar, and continues sharing music with Austin women through classes and performance opportunities. Mandy has released two albums (‘These Bad Habits’ and ‘1,000 Miles’) and was voted in the Top Ten Musicians of the Year in the 2016 Austin Chronicle Music Poll. When not touring she lives in South Austin with her handsome boyfriend and two awesome gray kitties.
