Savvy & Mandy Q&A

Oct 31, 2010

Savvy & Mandy (Savannah Burhoe and Amanda Burhoe), sisters and a pretty sweet pop duo from Southern Cali, recently chatted with Kidzworld about their singing, their family, their pets and the message behind their music.


Kidzworld: How old are you girls?
Savvy & Mandy: Savvy is 17 and I am 15.


Kidzworld: How did you get your start in show biz?
Savvy & Mandy: We actually started in the business modeling when we were 8 and 10 years old, and then we moved on to acting in commercials.


Kidzworld: Has singing always been a passion for you?
Savvy & Mandy: Mandy has been singing since she first learned to speak! She had always said that she wanted to be a singer when she grew up! I got a little jealous of her getting all of this attention for singing, so I would practice singing alone in my room to see if I could do it too! One day my mom overheard me, and said, "Oh my gosh, she can sing, too!" I have been singing ever since, and we both love it and feel so fortunate that we can follow our dream.


Kidzworld: Do you have any other siblings?
Savvy & Mandy: Yes, we have an older brother Brayden who is 24 and a sister Christina who is 22.


Kidzworld: Do you have any pets?
Savvy & Mandy: We have four cats, Spooky, Paris, Bo and Kira and two dogs, Gucci and Reggie.


Kidzworld: What’s the biggest message you try to get across through your music?
Savvy & Mandy: We try to sing songs that people can relate to. As we grow up we go through so many things and we like to write music about our experiences. It is always so cool when fans write to us saying that a certain song helped them to get through a difficult time or inspired them in some way. It really means a lot to us.

Kidzworld: What has your Radio Disney experience been like?
Savvy & Mandy: It has been great! Radio Disney was the first station to play our music and get it out there. We have met so many awesome people and have had the opportunity to travel and perform all over the United States!


Kidzworld: How do you decide who does lead vocals and who does backup vocals on your songs?
Savvy & Mandy: We both sing on all of our songs. Sometimes our producer will have one of us do a certain verse or lead depending on the sound or range that is required for a particular song.


Kidzworld: You guys post quite a range of videos on your YouTube channel – how do you decide what to talk about when you tape?
Savvy & Mandy: Most of our videos are just random ideas that we come up with on the spot. We never have anything scripted, we just make it up as we go along!

Kidzworld: Have you ever taken any professional acting, modeling, voice or dance lessons?
Savvy & Mandy: Yes, we have taken acting, dance and vocal lessons. We continue to have a vocal coach work with us weekly to expand our range and work on our songs.


Kidzworld: With such a busy schedule, what do you guys do about school and homework?
Savvy & Mandy: Savvy graduated high school already, and I do independent study at home. We both went to public school for elementary, middle and part of high school, but it is too difficult to attend regular school now with our schedule.


Kidzworld: Who has been your fave musician to play a show with so far?
Savvy & Mandy: I think we would both have to say Demi Lovato. We performed at the Hollywood Christmas parade together one year, and then we all rode on the Disney float in the parade. It was a really fun experience, she's a very sweet girl.


Kidzworld: What are your plans/goals for the future?
Savvy & Mandy: We hope to continue to write and record more music, go on tour and hopefully have our own TV show or movie someday!
