Amy Metcalfe recently joined Royalty Records, where she will be a part of a growing roster filled with exceptional talent and be amongst the fresh new music to be released by the label later this year.

Amy hails from Red Deer, Alberta where she spends her time immersed in songwriting and working on her farm. While her music reflects crossover potential, country flows deep, with experience as a horse trainer, daily chores on the acreage and partaking in regular equestrian competitions all across Alberta.

Amy plays guitar, banjo, ukulele and piano and has written over 200 songs. She has worked with some of Canada and Nashville’s top writers including, Grammy Winner Wayne Kirkpatrick, Cindy Morgan, Phil Madiera, Jeremy Bose, Byron Hill, Duane Steele and Rylee Madison.

“I was first introduced to Amy Metcalfe by Stacie Roper (Hey Romeo) at last year’s CCMA’s. From our first meeting, to the subsequent chats we had last fall, I instantly recognized Amy’s passion to her craft as a songwriter, performer and vocalist. As I heard her story of the last couple years and the opportunities she had been presented and turned down, I was drawn to her respect of and dedication to her creative process and integrity of what it means to her. I am honoured to have Amy join our Royalty family and excited for what the future holds for this talented young singer/songwriter. – Rob Smith

Rob and I had been talking since last CCMA’s. I went to Nashville for a couple months in the fall, and when I returned we set up a few more meetings. In this industry I’ve had a few offers and/or scenarios that had a lot of great potential, however I’ve always guarded my creativity and didn’t feel I would have enough creative control. To me, the most admirable artists and singers are the ones that represent something real, and with Royalty I felt that is exactly what I could be. I’m so excited to start this next step in my career and have Royalty alongside me. – Amy Metcalfe

Signed both to a label and publishing deal, this bright multifaceted talent has what it takes to raise the bar in Canadian country music and help steer Royalty into a new direction, alongside other new signings. Keep an eye out for new music coming from Amy Metcalfe this fall!
