Ambre McLean’s “My Heart” Out Now!

November 24th, for immediate release:

Singer-songwriter Ambre McLean(Kitchener, ON) releases her 5th studio album “My Heart” today. This much anticipated follow up to 2014’s “Me” – “My Heart” brings us a stripped down and raw record, rife with sincere and sometimes bone-chilling performances – all tied together by McLean’s unique musicianship and breathtaking voice.

The first single from the album “Poster” was released to radio earlier this month, shortly after McLean being named as one of the artists showcasing at the 30th annual Folk Alliance International this February 2018.

New Video: Cannons – Written On The Wall

A couple months ago I got call from Cannons asking me to come out and film their set at the ACC opening for Bon Jovi. How could I say no? It was a great night, made all the more awesome by the fact that I’ve know some of these dudes(and their manager) for about the 20 year mark now. The band played a great set to an enamoured crowd, and with the footage from the night I cut together this video for their song “Written On The Wall”…
Cannons(formerly Autumn’s Cannon) are a rock band from Ottawa, Ontario currently touring in support of their new EP.
