Tin Cup Prophette

Getting her name from the tip cup dangling from her fiddle case, Amanda Kapousouz (aka The Tin Cup Prophette) is no stranger to the stage. Once hailing from New York City, this "busker extraordinaire" entertained thousands of commuters daily on subway platforms for small change. Working her way above ground, Amanda began to play with various bands in the city ranging in style from traditional Irish and heavy metal bluegrass to jazz, dixieland, and rock-n-roll. She has also composed music for modern dance, arranged music for film, and has toured extensively in the Irish music circuit.

Currently, Tin Cup Prophette’s debut album of original songs, Liar and the Thief, is receiving much praise and was nominated for Album of the Year in this year’s Flagpole Music Awards. She has also earned a four star review in Paste Magazine. Tin Cup Prophette has also just recorded a second traditional Irish album entitled Calling the Oceans By Name while touring for Liar and the Thief, and has recently returned to Kansas City to perform at their Irish Festival where she remains a favorite among the locals. Tin Cup Prophette has also garnered attention by being included on REM’s fanclub single last year. The single features her rendition of REM’s “Tongue“. She will focus on writing more songs for the remainder of this year with some touring thrown in. Check It Out!
