“Stepping Stone” is beautiful, melodically inspired by the sounds of modern pop and rock, but instrumentally soaked in a more worldly aura that impresses on multiple levels. “Stepping Stone” reaches out for your affection and holds tight to it right the way through. Explosive and unique vocals line the outer edges in an intentional fashion and fragments of audio and ideas rain down around you. Surprisingly multi-layered, Amanda has taken the time to build something entirely unique, made up of individually crafted and captured moments. Ultimately, the effect is a rightfully uplifting call to action, a song that engages and embraces the listener, and inspires them to step forward. The song is subtle yet stunning, and hopefully, it’s merely a taste of what’s to come from Amanda Dean! – Buzz Music L.A.
