Product Description

Her songs, like still waters, run deep. Forgiveness, mercy, and life’s mistakes are potent themes in the songs of this St. John’s singer/songwriter who addresses these issues with an empathetic perspective and eloquent language. Curran’s sound marries acoustic folk and textured pop sensibilities, lending range to her metaphor-rich verses delivered with an “old-soul’s voice”.

On this, her latest CD, we find Amelia at her most tuneful and upbeat; less Leonard Cohen and more Tom Petty or Warren Zevon. But Amelia’s metaphor-rich lyrics are still as constant as a northern star. This record will attract a new mess of fans and expand her audience with pop sensibilities not unlike Sarah Harmer and Kathleen Edwards.
