It’s been a long time coming…

It has been a long time since my last post, I apologize for being so out of date.  So much has happened…

I made it to the TOP 8 in CBC’s Searchlight: Hunt for Canada’s best new artist!  I am so grateful to all those who voted each and everyday through the competition.  It was a long few months and I felt so honoured to be among the last few standing.  Thank you again for voting!  I just got my official finalist plaque in the mail.  Much thanks CBC!

I am currently in the middle of  finishing up my new record, with a wishful release date of early spring 2014.   I am sooo excited about it!!  This isn’t a spoiler but I will say that it is a culmination of all the musical things I do,  from piano to guitar to looping.   If you’d like to learn more about how you can help… please visit www.kapipal.com/ambremclean

I am also working on another recording project with good friend Preetam Sengupta, founder of LAMA: Letting Artists Make art (www.lamavision.com).  Together we are Crash Bamboo.  (crashbamboo.com)  You can like us on our Facebook page if you feel so inclined :)

In just 2 DAYS!!!! I’m heading off to Nashville for my first time.  I’m not sure what’s in store for me there but I am going with an open mind and a semi loose plan.  I will be showcasing on Tuesday, November 26th at The Mercury Lounge for the Billy Block Show (www.billyblock.com)
I will be closing the show at 9:30pm.  If you know anyone in the area… please pass it on!

Hugs and love to anyone who has stopped by for a visit!  xo Ambre

Voices Of Fire

Tara Holloway and Ambre McLean hit the road for “Voices Of Fire” Ontario tourdates.
‘Voices of Fire’, a succinct way to describe two wild and beautiful singing voices. Unpredictable and even magical, this is what an evening with Ambre McLean and Tara Holloway means to an audience.
Described as, “..delivery and vocal styles (like) ear candy.  This is the new sound of Canada rising, soulful, thoughtful, and reflective.  ..soul’s music at its best, embodied in the two damn near perfect voices of Tara Holloway and Ambre McLean,” -this is a show not to be missed. To know what is really going on in Canada’s music scene, you MUST witness these 2 artists.

I’ve already started working on my next record, but making an album is expensive! And unfortunately, time spent in the studio is also time spent NOT out earning $$$
Sooo… I am looking for the kind support of my fans to help me in my efforts. I’m super excited about this new music, and I’d really like to make a big splash with this one!! Your generous support will help me in creating, recording, advertising, promoting and even music video-ifying my new songs!

I truly appreciate your contributions, and have come up with some great and fun rewards, I also make greeeaat cookies, just sayin’…

Live From Your Living Room…

A little while ago I played a house concert, and we had a bunch of extra microphones and computers lying around.
So, I recorded a live album – and guess what? It’s FREE…

I picked 9 of my favorite songs from that night, 5 of which have never been recorded before and might even show up on the next studio album. Did I mention it’s FREE?
