#Spotlight: Ambre McLean

 

TUNE IN ALL THIS WEEK FOR KENT BRIDGE / KITCHENER-WATERLOO’S AMBRE MCLEAN ON THE #SPOTLIGHT – HEAD DAILY AT 3:40 PM!

Singer-songwriter Ambre McLean has released her fifth studio album “My Heart”. This much anticipated follow up to 2014’s “Me” – “My Heart” brings us a stripped down and raw record, rife with sincere and sometimes bone-chilling performances – all tied together by McLean’s unique musicianship and breathtaking voice.

The first single from the album “Poster” was released to radio earlier this month, shortly after McLean being named as one of the artists showcasing at the 30th annual Folk Alliance International this February 2018.

Download and stream “My Heart” on all music platforms, including iTunes, Spotify, GooglePlay, etc.

What does it mean to be an Ambre McLean fan?

The answer to that question begins the moment you hear her sing.  It’s something you earn a deeper understanding of as you absorb her songs, or perhaps more accurately – as they absorb you.  “Soul” is a word that means different things to different people…  Some things need to be felt rather than summed up with words.  Some things are better understood by that shiver down your spine, that smile on your face, or that tear that sneaks down your cheek.  Whatever soul means to you, experiencing the music of Ambre McLean, may just leave you with a new definition.

A veteran of the Canadian music scene, with her genre defying style and indie approach, McLean has carved her own path along the way.  After years of performing with bands Kyn, and Sharon Said, Ambre released her debut solo EP “Just Passing Through” in 2004, showcasing her ever-evolving craft.  Since then Ambre has released 3 studio album’s, garnered numerous accolades and has appeared regularly on the Canadian music festival circuit.  Currently touring in support of her brand new album “Me”, McLean is truly one of Canada’s rising stars.  She has been called “Canada’s best kept secret”.  With songs that will stick with you, and a voice bound to haunt you, this is one secret you’ll want to be in on.

“She must have been born to it. Ambre is a brilliant player, a brilliant songwriter and a brilliant performer.”
(Craig Norris, CBC)

“McLean’s voice – is an instrument itself: gorgeous, sometimes with a rich, bluesy feel, other times a sweet mellow sound, alternatively soft and ferocious, always carrying these tunes straight to your musical heart.”
(David Yazbeck, NXEW.ca)

“Seeing Ambre live is what live music should be like – Spontaneous Combustion… This is the new sound of Canada rising, soulful, thoughtful, and reflective.”
(Michael Williams)

“I find her voice fantastically expressive.”
(Alan Cross)
