What does it mean to be an Ambre McLean fan?
The answer to that question begins the moment you hear her sing. It’s something you earn a deeper understanding of as you absorb her songs, or perhaps more accurately – as they absorb you. “Soul” is a word that means different things to different people… Some things need to be felt rather than summed up with words. Some things are better understood by that shiver down your spine, that smile on your face, or that tear that sneaks down your cheek. Whatever soul means to you, experiencing the music of Ambre McLean, may just leave you with a new definition.
A veteran of the Canadian music scene, with her genre defying style and indie approach, McLean has carved her own path along the way. After years of performing with bands Kyn, and Sharon Said, Ambre released her debut solo EP “Just Passing Through” in 2004, showcasing her ever-evolving craft. Since then Ambre has released 2 album’s with respected indie label Busted Flat Records(Matt Andersen, Jay Semko, Brock Zeman), garnered numerous accolades and has appeared regularly on the Canadian music festival circuit. Currently working on her follow-up to 2010′s “Murder At The Smokehouse – A Musical Novella” McLean is truly one of Canada’s rising stars. She has been called “Canada’s best kept secret”. With songs that will move you, and a voice bound to haunt you, this is one secret you’ll want to be in on.
