Close up Amanda Lynn Stubley

 

Folklorist 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.

As a folklorist and radio 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.

She boldly set out to make a recording, and it’s done!  She released her EP Gem in early March, with a barnburner of a party at The SoHo Bar and Grill. Thank you to everyone who came out.

Gem earned Amanda Lynn a nomination in the folk / roots category of the 2017 Jack Richardson London Music Awards, and has been charting at college radio stations across Canada.

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.
