TELEGRAPH UK - Keep a Fire Top 10 HIghlights for Summer

 

 

"Ottawa-based AMANDA RHEAUME is of Métis heritage (Canada’s aboriginal peoples), and there are traces of Joni Mitchell and Alanis in her singing on Keep A Fire. She is an evocative storyteller, especially on the highlight track Not This Time, a song about a harrowing voyage across the Great Slave Lake taken by her great grandparents. The song features some wonderfully moody violin. The arrangements are clever and guest appearances include Fred Guignon and Pat Giunta. Keep a Fire (especially songs such as Passed Down) shows off Rheaume's talent."

HAPPY NATIONAL ABORIGINAL DAY!

 

To celebrate this year's National Aboriginal Day I am posting a brand new song "Keep a Fire in the Rain",
a song off my upcoming release "Keep a Fire".


This song is about my Ojibwe great-grandmother, Stella Rheaume and her time when she lived in
God's Lake Manitoba back in the1930's. My great-grandfather worked for the mine, but since they
were a half-breed family they were not allowed to live on the mine site or on the reserve.

DEC 25 - CHRISTMAS IN KABUL 2011

 

While most musicians take Christmas as a time to relax and recharge -- and maybe do a few local gigs -- Ottawa's Amanda Rheaume had another way of celebrating Christmas. The singer-songwriter spent the holiday travelling from Ottawa to Rome, Kuwait, and Kabul to perform for Canadian Forces members deployed there.

 

And while she was the only professional musician on the tour, she was accompanied by a few notable guests -- Governor General David Johnston, Minister of National Defence Peter MacKay, Leader of the Liberal Party Bob Rae, and General Walt Natynczyk, the Chief of the Defence Staff.

Musically, Amanda has been on the stage of major music events and has opened for many famous acts. She’s even collaborated with some of the industry’s top names including co-writing music with Holly McNarland, Chantal Kreviazuk, Jeff Pearce and Brian Byme. "

ROOTS MUSIC CANADA REVIEWS "LIGHT OF ANOTHER DAY"

 

Amanda Rheaume’s Light of Another Day dawns

 

"...Because Light of Another Day has taken Rheaume quite some distance from a calculated pop confection. With modest percussion in the back of the sound and acoustic guitar at the forefront, the CD’s 11 songs find a unique place where country, folk, and pop intersect."
