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.”
“I find her voice fantastically expressive.”
The sensitive nature of his lyrics, his subtle guitar playing, stellar vocals, and use of sharp stirring instrumental arrangements have left listeners spellbound. Audiences have described his live performances as deeply moving and uplifting, and for some “the best gig” they have ever been to. Anderson is a sophisticated artist whose musical tales of human vulnerability connect so deeply they feel like an instant soundtrack to your life- taking folk to a level that is cinematic in reach and vision. A taste-maker with a crooner-like ease of style, his passion for fashion, cinematography and animation seep into and out of his music, making him an exciting multidimensional artist.
