Amanda Kramer is an American musician, best known as a former keyboardist and drummer of the 1980s electronic band Information Society. She soon left the band claiming personal issues (i.e. heroin addiction[1]). She then joined the musical collective, Golden Palominos, beginning with 1989 A Dead Horse, as a featured vocalist. She then appeared on some 10,000 Maniacs albums as a guest artist, most prominently on their MTV Unplugged album. In 1993, she met Karl Wallinger and joined World Party. She has also toured with Lloyd Cole, Julee Cruise and Siouxsie Sioux, among others. While in London, she has also composed music for the television series "Lonely Planet", later renamed Pilot Guides and Globe Trekkers.

In 2003, Kramer joined the rock group The Psychedelic Furs and is still a member of that group. She currently resides in London, England.
