This was the motivation when Amanda Ginsburg received Sweden's composers '/ lyricists' Jazz Prize, which by the way is not the only prize this singer has received: Amanda Ginsburg has won Jazz of the Year at the Grammy Awards not just once but twice (2019 and 2021) and plays constantly for sold out houses around Sweden. She sings about the simplicity of everyday life, the somewhat banal stories that make up a large part of everyone's lives, and she does it with gusto!
