Amanda Lynn Stubley – songwriter
Each one of The Heartaches has a different focus in life. We’re pretty excited that these days, Amanda Lynn is working on songwriting and branching out as a solo artist. And all that work has garnered her a nomination in for the Jack Richardson London Music Awards, in the Folk / Roots Category! You can check out the nominees and maybe even vote for her, by going to www.jrlma.ca/vote-now/. Truly, though, it’s being nominated for an award like that this is the prize! What an honour.
As a folklorist and DJ, Amanda Lynn has spent much of the past 10 years immersing herself in the nuances of traditional stringband music. Recently, however, the songwriting muse has been knocking on her door, and she’s doing her best to apply what she’s learned to an emerging repertoire.
Amanda Lynn very boldly set out to make a recording and it’s done! Her little EP Gem is finished, and she released it in early March with a barnburner of a party at The SoHo Bar and Grill. Thank you to everyone who came out.
Stay tuned! Amanda Lynn is working on some more exciting solo shows. In the meantime, let us know if you’d like to purchase a copy of Gem. You can check out the songs below, or purchase them via bandcamp.
