Spotlight – Ambre McLean


Tune in all this week at 3:40 pm as Jay features Ambre McLean on the Local Spotlight!


What does it mean to be an Ambre McLean fan?

ambre mcleanThe 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.


  • Ambre McLean just released a new charity single, “Butterfly”, with all proceeds donated to the Canadian Cancer Society.
