Twenty-eight-year-old Amanda Rheaume may be the most accomplished and road-tested Canadian musician that you’ve never heard of. She is rapidly rising to the front of the pack of female artists in Canada. In the past two years, she has toured North America extensively and performed for Canadian troops in Afghanistan, Dubai, and Alert. She has played big festivals and opened for big names, such as The Sadies, Doc Walker, and Lucinda Williams. She’s appeared at Lilith Fair alongside Sarah McLachlan, Dixie Chicks, Indigo Girls and Sheryl Crow. Her work has spanned the musical landscape of rock, pop, folk and roots. Although Rheaume usually performs with a four-piece band, her most recent release Light of Another Day features a return to her folk roots.

“Amanda exudes excitement in concert, organically drawing in the crowds’ attention with her positive energy and downright natural love for music and performing.” - Tony Martins, Guerilla Magazine (Ottawa)
