Amelia Curran
Amelia Curran
Juno-award winner and Canada's master contemporary songstress Amelia Curran's songs are three-minute musical dramas; slices of life, love, introspection and heartbreak. She describes the craft of songwriting as an act of expressing the inexpressible and describing the indescribable, choosing the right words over the pretty ones to tell her often dark and moody stories. Thirteen years and seven albums after her beginnings as a busker on the street corners of her native St. John's, Newfoundland, her musical approach has deepened and matured. On her newest collection of songs They Promised You Mercy, her knife-sharp lyrics find peace and even cheerfulness amidst producer Michael Phillip Wojewoda's lush layers. It's a poised, focussed and consummate work that showcases her singular songwriting talent.
