Amanda Rheaume [pronounced “RAY-um] now has fans across Canada and in Europe, where she tours regularly. Her albums have gained critical acclaim, a JUNO nomination and a Canadian Folk Music Award. Her new album, The Skin I’m In, was produced by Colin Cripps of Blue Rodeo at The Tragically Hip’s famed Bathouse Studio. Much of the new material was developed with co-writers from Nashville, Toronto and LA, but one song-writing experience was hers alone.
She’d travelled to Lac Seul in northwest Ontario where the Ojibway/Anishinaabe side of her family was from, and spent a week writing in a cabin. She relates, “After sitting by the water every day, I jumped in the lake my ancestors travelled on for years before me, where they’d fish, hunt and trap. I felt like I could feel them all surrounding me. I felt I was returning to where I was from. And that’s how Return To The Water was born!”
Return is just one of many songs Amanda and her 3-piece band would like to share with you. She says her new songs are especially fun to play and to sing. To us, that sounds like a good summer’s afternoon.
