“Real Thing” is the first release from Amanda Broadway’s new series of recordings, The Sanctuary Sessions. Recording all songs at The Sanctuary in Nashville, the focus of this project is to approach each song in the studio individually, and to follow the vision of each song without limitation by genre, instrumentation, personnel, or production style. Both “Real Thing” and “It Never Rains” were recorded LIVE! (“It Never Rains” sold through Bandcamp store only. Available as a digital download and on the Physical CD.)
