A powerful, slightly raspy voice, a strong grasp for melodies and near-magical arrangements of pop, folk and roots rock elements - these are the mosaic pieces making up the complete work of art that is Amanda Rheaume. The singer/songwriter released her first EP ten years ago - and since then a lot has happened: In her home country Canada, Amanda has taken up her place at the helm of the modern folk rock scene and already won numerous awards, such as the "Canadian Folk Music Award". In 2014, she was also nominated for the Juno Award, the Canadian counterpart to the Grammy.
Outside the limelight, Amanda – who has indigenous roots herself - is fighting for ethnic minority rights as well as breast cancer awareness and also supports youth organizations in her home town Ottawa. With her new album "Holding Patterns", Amanda is also taking a stand for social changes, even more personally than ever before. Experience this extraordinary artist live at L-BEACH #8 and discover why Amanda is often mentioned in the same breath with artists like Alanis Morissette, Emmylou Harris or Sheryl Crow.
