SONY MUSIC CANADA PRESENT…
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.

Today, March 12th, 2013 marks the official release day for Tenille’s brand new album “LIGHT”.
The album features the single “Dear Heart,” which is currently being played on Canadian Country radio and recent video release directed by mulitple award winner Stephano Barberis.
Based on the concept that light and hope can be found anywhere, even in the darkest corners of a person’s life, Light showcases Tenille’s substantial growth as an artist and her belief that music has the power to motivate people to make positive changes in their own lives and the lives of others. Nowhere is that clearer than on songs like “Pay It Forward,” the theme song for her 2012 -2013 Canadian ‘Play It Forward’ tour, and lead single “Dear Heart,” co-written with Gordie Sampson (Carrie Underwood, Martina McBride), Caitlyn Smith (Rascal Flatts) and Kelly Archer (Jason Aldean, Dustin Lynch) – which expresses Tenille’s willingness to share her own vulnerability and openness with the world.

“I can’t wait to share Light with everyone,” says Tenille. “The songs and the messages on this record mean so much to me and I had a blast working on it with an amazing team of musicians and my producer, Fred Mollin. Watching them breathe life into these songs was an unforgettable experience.”
On the strength of her 2011 Royalty Records debut, Real, which entered the SoundScan Country chart at #13 the first week of its release, Tenille became the youngest artist ever nominated for the coveted Canadian Country Music Award for Female Artist of the Year (2011), and in 2012 the youngest recipient of the CCMA Slaight Music Humanitarian Award. That same year the 18-year-old’s talent and dedication garnered her the Grand Prairie and District Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Award for Young Entrepreneur of the Year. In early 2013, Tenille took home the Association of Country Music in Alberta’s Fan’s Choice Award, won the ACMA Female Artist of the Year Award for the second year running and was honoured with a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal.
