Award-winning Métis singer-songwriter Amanda Rheaume is bringing her soulful blend of folk-country-pop to the Living Arts Centre.
Her music, a powerful, slightly gritty, deeply personal, and instantly accessible roots-pop Americana sound, has been featured internationally at major festivals, theatres and clubs in Canada, Germany, Austria, France, Denmark, England, Scotland and Ireland. In 2014, Amanda received a Canadian Folk Music Award for Aboriginal songwriter of the year as well as a Juno nomination for Aboriginal album of the year. Last June, she won the prestigious REVEAL Indigenous Arts Award.
Her increasing success stems from her soulful ability to translate personal stories into messages, evoke a feeling of positivity, communicate the strength of those before her, and connect with her listeners. With the release of the album, Holding Patterns, in 2016 and its single Red Dress, Rheaume continues a long history of advocating change through her work as an artist.
Amanda Rheaume appears at the Living Arts Centre RBC Theatre at 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 2. Ticket prices start at $20.
