Amelia Curran was born in St. John’s, Newfoundland. She started playing guitar and writing songs as a teenager and went on to hone her skills on the local bar circuit before relocating to Halifax, Nova Scotia.

A songwriter by trade, but a writer at heart, Curran believes language is everything. She describes the craft of song-writing as an act of “expressing the inexpressible, a means of describing the indescribable.” Her songs have a crisp and melodic tone that leave the songs humming through your head as much as her lyrics echoing through your conscience.

Curran released her first album Barricade in 2000. Since then she has released four more albums. Her latest release Hunter, Hunter (2009) won the 2010 Juno award in the Solo Roots and Traditional Album of the Year category and garnered four East Coast Music Award nominations. In addition to being a musician, Curran is also a playwright and an actor.

“Like the best poets, Curran packs so much meaning into each line that the listener barely has time to register each clever lyric before the next zinger comes along.”- Spinner Canada

“Curran’s music is a bit like Leonard Cohen being channelled in a dusty saloon by Patsy Cline.” - National Post

Costelo_jpegErin Costelo blends rich, layered, piano-driven compositions with lyrics as often searing as they are sweet. Nominated for a Music Nova Scotia Award and an East Coast Music Award, Costelo has captured the strength and fragility of her distinctively low, smokey voice in moody, unique arrangement. She blends barrelhouse blues, boogie-woogie and 60′s soul with her truthful melody-driven ballads to create a sound that is all her own. Erin currently makes her home in Halifax.
