TRACK// The Coppertone: Young Blood

Amanda Zelina is the poster-girl for self-empowerment. In cutting herself free of an unfair recording contract, Amanda lost all the rights to her music. Fiercely determined, she went ahead and raised $20,000 to buy those rights back. 'Young Blood' is the soundtrack to her campaign, an unshakable and catchy and furiously impassioned blues anthem. Throbbing with an unparalleled emotion, lines like "I'm taking back my name" strike at your heart with the rarely wielded clubs of honesty and integrity. Two values often found lacking, Zelina's sincerity is humbling, and curiously restorative!
