Birth NameAmanda Scheer

Mini Bio (1)

Mother of two and widow of film director Ted Demme, Amanda Scheer-Demme has made a name for herself in many different areas of the entertainment world.

A "...veteran music supervisor responsible for such groundbreaking soundtracks as 2004's [Grammy Award-winning] Garden State (2004) and Mean Girls (2004)" (-Hollywood Reporter) - she has also created some of the most popular nightlife spots on both coasts, from "Carwash" in NY to "The Tropicana" and "Teddy's" in LA. In addition to music and nightlife supervision, she incubated the careers of multi-platinum artists like Cypress Hill, House of Pain, Korn, Rakim, Incubus, Nikka Costa, Mark Ronson, Duncan Sheik and Adam Goldstein (aka DJ AM) through her companies like Immortal and Ventrue Records and her management company, "Buzztone".

Scheer-Demme has music-supervised and consulted for 30 film and television productions including Blow (2001) and Erin Brockovich (2000) as well as those listed above. "[She] has collaborated as a music supervisor with everyone from Steven Soderbergh to Wyclef Jean" - London Evening Standard.

Scheer Demme drew a lot of attention when she opened the two most popular clubs in the country, "The Tropicana" and "Teddy's", in partnership with the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. Demme's ability to attract the A-List stars of film, music, television and sports ushered in a new era of nightlife. When the meteoric rise of both venues created logistical problems beyond the Hotel's comfort level, they ended the association. Scheer-Demme characteristically moved without hesitation on to her next set of projects, which included hosting a radio show about music and film on Indie 103.1FM which has featured such industry luminaries as Pete Berg, Brian Grazer, Joaquin Phoenix, Brian J. Singer, Paul Thomas Anderson, Danny Elfman, Jim Sheridan, Diane Warren, Mark Mothersbaugh, Mark Romanek and Zach Braff. Scheer-Demme has an impeccable read on the current attitude of popular culture, and an unerring sense of where it's heading. She has shown time and again that her intuitive grasp of "what's coming next" can be brought to fruition in both creatively and commercially viable ways. She has demonstrated that business and pleasure not only can mix, but should mix. Every facet of her life informs the other as she raises her family, cultivates her business ventures and preserves the legacy of her late husband, director Ted Demme. Most recently, Scheer-Demme partnered with "Thrive Records" and film producer George Augusto to produce the new "His & Hers" series of CDs, a sexy, sophisticated, eclectic, contemporary compilation series, the first of which features artists ranging from Ryan Adams, Oasis, and The Dandy Warhols to The Postal Service, Daft Punk, Goldfrapp, and Nina Simone.
