A multi-faceted talent grown in a small town in Manitoba, and cured on an acreage in Alberta, Amy Metcalfe is the newest face to Country Music.
With her unique vocals and writing Amy has caught the attention of some of the biggest writers in country music today. She has written over 250 songs herself and co-written with talents such as Byron Hill, Grammy award winners and Nominees Cindy Morgan and Wayne Kirkpatrick (Little Big Town, Faith Hill, Martina Mcbride, Trisha Yearwood…),Duane Steele and Phil Madeira (Garth Brooks, Civil Wars, Toby Keith…) to name a few.
Amy’s debut EP “InsideOut” comes out today on iTunes and hits store shelves Tuesday April 28th, 2015, with 6 of the 7 tracks self penned. Amy hopes the compilation gives listeners a good sense of the many sides of her.
“This EP, if you listen to the lyrics, is about self discovery whether that be through someone who hurt you, someone you’ve lost, or the person you’ve shaded yourself to be. As a new artist I’m trying to figure out my place in the mix and this album is a good representation of the last few years of my life. There are a lot of question marks in the lyrics. I’ve been blessed to write with so many amazing writers but I felt like the stuff we wrote was better suited for my second album, allowing room for growth and to show another side of me… as there seems to be a few of those!” – Amy Metcalfe
With a love to perform and be on stage rooted in a 13 year dance career Amy aspires to impact Canadian Country Music in a big way by embracing radio and performances across Canada. Her hopes are that with every performance and listen you experience, you leave with a sense of who she is and can relate to the life in her lyrics.
