Amanda Jackson Band (Trio) bring their Into the Light tour to Ottawa and will be joined by Chas Guay and Nick Gauthier!
Chas Guay and Nick Gauthier also hail from Prince Edward Island and now reside in Ottawa. Together they combine some masterful songwriting and inspired musicianship. They will bring their recent collaborations and will also be performing material from Chas’ albums.
Amanda Jackson Band (Trio) is about connecting – with their lyrics, their audience, the planet, and each other. Comprised of Amanda Jackson (vocals), Dale McKie (guitar, harmonica), and Todd MacLean (guitar, piano, sax), Amanda Jackson Trio creates an intimate listening experience that leaves the audience feeling as if they’ve had the chance to peer into the soul of the band.
Amanda’s powerful voice highlights the vulnerability of their lyrics, adding to the honesty of the story-telling. Their original songs get to the core of the human experience with a strong emphasis on social awareness and what makes us human.
In February 2016 the band released Live at Harmony House and the popular live album was followed up with the much anticipated studio debut, Fire in the Blue, in July 2017. The album won the 2018 Music PEI Award for Urban recording of the year and garnered two nominations for Group Recording and New Artist of the Year. In early 2018, the band received national attention as one of the top 10 finalists for the 2018 CBC Searchlight new talent contest, earning their spot as one of the top five chosen by voters across the country for their song “Dance into the Light”. They were also highlighted by the CBC producers as one of the standouts from the Top 100.
