LAC Presents: Amanda Rheaume

Award-winning Métis Singer-Songwriter Amanda Rheaume Takes the Stage at the Living Arts Centre

‘soulfully personal at its core, whether Rheaume is singing a rootsy ballad or belting out a gritty kiss-off — Vue Weekly, 2016

February 2, 2018 at 7:30PM
Tickets $20 and up | RBC Theatre

MISSISSAUGA, ON: Amanda Rheaume is an award-winning Métis singer-songwriter with a powerful, slightly gritty, deeply personal, and instantly accessible roots-pop Americana sound. She delivers her unique and soulful blend of folk-country-pop twinged tracks internationally at major country and folk/roots festivals, theatres and clubs in Canada, Germany, Austria, France, Denmark, England, Scotland and Ireland.

Amanda quickly earned a reputation as a generous community-oriented artist and leader who co-organized the Babes4Breasts concerts and recording projects, spearheaded Ottawa’s Bluebird North songwriter showcases, performed for the troops in Afghanistan three times, raised money for the families of military personnel, and sold 6500 copies of a Christmas EP in Ottawa alone to raise money for Boys and Girls Clubs of Ottawa.

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. Amanda is endorsed by Epiphany and supported by Gibson Guitar. She recently sang the anthem at the Governor Generals Performing Arts Awards and had the honour of singing at the national launch of the Inquiry into the Missing Murdered Women and Girls in Canada. In June 2017 Amanda won the prestigious REVEAL Indigenous Arts Award.

Amanda’s 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 Holding Patterns (2016) and its single “Red Dress,” Amanda continues a long history of raising money and advocating change through her work as an artist – and this time, it’s personal.
