Is freakin sweet, and growing up around her and her intensely talented rock and roll family(dad n brother) was fun just to see all the crap they wrote together and seperately in projects. The fact that Amanda is being featured on here is awesome because of the obvious skill she's displayed at venues since middle school age.

I cant wait to see her on your next months cover. She has worked hard to get to this pont in her career. And gingerjake have also put in so much time and effort to help here get this far. So that is why I think Amanda should get a cover shot.

I hope to see her on your next months cover. She has worked so hard in the minneapolis music scene to get her band to where there at now.

Ian is a selfish,self centered TOOL!!!

Great to see a local band getting a bit of national attention. The band is constantly progressing and cranking out new tunes that deserve some damn radio play. The time has come for Gingerjake to rise up and affirm their rightful place in the rock-n-roll music scene. Great band, great people. Oh, everyone thinks Amanda is so sexy (I do too), but it seems the lead singer on Kings of Leon (Caleb Followill) cut his hair in an effort to emulate Ian's killer good looks. Watch out ladies-Ian's gonna get cha.

To all the guitar hero wannabe haters. These pictures have nothing to do with the band, who even cares;it is about a smoking hot girl holding a guitar,hence THE GIRLS OF GUITAR WORLD. So... get over it ,you will probably never get into the magazine unless you have a sex change
;cant anyone just be happy for the girl.Photographer dude get over it, you guys are a dime a dozen;kinda like guitar players.Ian, your a tool!!!!

Have you listened to their stuff on sonic bids?

http://sonicbids.com/epk/epk.aspx?epk_id=118380

I don't think Eric and Joe wrote any of those songs and they are Awesome.

Ian and Amanda always made the band for me, so I am not missing anything.

Gingerjake wouldnt be nearly what they are now if it wasnt for Eric and joe. and the new section they got, skywynd rejects... pfft...disappointed...seems they went the way of No Doubt...

I agree that Eric and Joe helped progress Gingerjake along side every member to get where they are in the Greater Minneapolis/St. Paul Music scene, I'll give you that...as far as the new rhythm section and guitarist's that Amanda is writing, recording and touring with, I guarantee you will eat your words for your shallow ignorant comments of calling them rejects. Brian and Derek of the former Skywind were the true talent of the band and I'm sure Gingerjake is developing, benefiting and showcasing that musical talent now that they have joined forces. ...and their new bass player will not bring them even close to No Doubts musical direction. Their next few albums will come out of Minneapolis like a hurricane and soon you will learn that you stand corrected for your insults...

As for Amanda Harris, she is by far the Hottest Girl of Guitar Word Magazine , not only because she has the infectious eyes of a gypsy rocker that will leave you spellbound, she is tall, gorgeous, tattooed and born of musicians. And IS a killer musician!!! Her incredible ability on vocals in the studio transfer to a live stage where she truly shines. Amanda Harris will be in Guitar World, and the Music World, for many years to come. So get ready, here she is...

She's an awesome chick. :]

WAY TO GO AMANDA
she the coolest.
Ive seen them every time they played Des Moines, Iowa
and Ive video taped every show, awesome band.

its funny I always tell Amanda and the guys in the band there just seconds away from being on the Late night show with David Letterman. also joke around with them telling them when they go to japan. they'll need to look out for all little Ginerjake puppet's, I can picture them now little pig tail Amandas puppets and even Action figures oh no the evil twins!! lol.

Rock on Lewis and every one from Des Moines, Iowa

indeed

I actually think that there are pics of her on their myspace that are hotter.

And I agree with Justinsanity, Ian is very talented and creative. Great guy too.

avatar

Justinsanity (not verified)

They are great folks, and it's true that she's good looking. However, as others have mentioned, it's the musical talent that shines here, folks.
Ian IS talented, creative, as is Amanda, and they do what they do VERY well.
Do they sound like other bands? Some, but not "carbon-copy". That's a little harsh. So if your band fits in a genre, suddenly you're a copy-cat???
Remember: no one can be Hendrix, Page, etc... But EVERY guitarist can learn from what they've done and further what they started. Every song is a progression from other songs, in some way.
Truly: give'em a listen.

Gingerjake is absolutlely incredible, & Amanda is truely one of the coolest people. I would much rather see them live, than ANY national recording artist. If you haven't seen them yet, do yourself a favor, & get your butt in front of their stage. If you've been a Gingerjake fan for a long time but haven't yet seen their acoustic performance, I can't recommend it highly enough. Amandas voice is even more incredible when it's not masked by the drums & electric guitars. But as much as I love thm unplugged, I can't wait to see them all plugged in again, with their new rhythm section! The withdrawals are getting pretty intense, but thankfully, the wait is almost over.

So i pretty much love amanda! she is the sweetest person i have ever meet and she is super down to earth.
i love the new album =]
you guys are by far the best band i listen to.

Nice way to steal some dude's work!! That's VERY uncool!

avatar

Senor Punko (not verified)

She can sing just fine....I guess. Without her TNA, there wouldn't be any publicity for the band. If you like Evanescence and are a 13 year old girl, you might like this photocopy of a photocopy "rock" band. Lookout, Maplewood! Here comes GINGER JAKE to rock your mullets and spandex off!

trsbchris

She can sing great, and can play any instrument in a band pretty much. She looks better than Amy Lee for one, and my main point of this message,
GINGERJAKE WAS AROUND BEFORE EVANESCANCE!!!
just an fyi

avatar

runemusic

...just look out for her next 2 albums with Gingerjake and you will be eating your words Punko...

avatar

indeed

Let's also not forget how tight Ian Severson, their guitar player, is. This is Guitar World.

let's not forget how much of a sweetheart she is.

Both are very talented, friendly, and humble. I don't understand why someone would come to this site and write negative comments. We get enough of that stuff on TMZ. I vote for Amanda in this competition! Peaceout..Jon Wefel www.myspace.com/strangeangelfish
