Amanda Stott - Chasing the SkyRemarkable voice, unremarkable material. Call it the Céline Syndrome. Stott, a farm girl from Brandon, Manitoba, has been dazzling listeners ever since winning her first singing contest at 11. Now 22, Stott is already a veteran, with her second CD on as many record labels. But saccharine songs like “My Real Life” and “Undeniably Real” are about as real as a Disney feel-good movie. “People concentrate so much on negativity,” says Stott. “I want to focus on positive, uplifting things.” Admirable intentions, but boring results.
