Since the release of her first album in 2000, Curran has an impressive discography which each year have gained a number of East Coast Music Award nominations including ‘Folk Recording Of The Year’, ‘Female Recording Of The Year’, until her album triumphed over all and won the much desired Juno Award.
Amelia Curran was born to write music, a songwriter by trade, but a writer at heart, she believes language is everything.
Amelia’s acclaimed 2009 album Hunter, Hunter won her the much sought after Juno Award for Best Roots and Traditional Album. With her new album, Curran returns to the scene with ten tracks that raise the bar on her signature lyricism, but also push beyond the folk boundaries that have defined her previous releases.
