Canadian Music ~ Amelia Curran


Amelia Curran is a Canadian singer-songwriter from St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador. The National Post describes her music as "a bit like Leonard Cohen being channeled in a dusty saloon by Patsy Cline."  She started playing guitar and writing songs as a teenager and eventually dropped out of university to busk on the streets of St. John's.

Curran released her first album in 2000, and since then she has released seven more. Curran's lyrics have been described as "evocative" by Spinner Canada who, referring to Curran's song "The Mistress", wrote "like the best poets, Curran packs so much meaning into each line that the listener barely has time to register each clever lyric before the next zinger comes along."

In addition to being a musician, Curran is also a playwright and actor, and has had her plays performed in fringe festivals.
