biographical info

What does it mean to be an Ambre McLean fan?

The answer to that question begins the moment you hear her sing.  It’s something you earn a deeper understanding of as you absorb her songs, or perhaps more accurately – as they absorb you.  “Soul” is a word that means different things to different people…  Some things need to be felt rather than summed up with words.  Some things are better understood by that shiver down your spine, that smile on your face, or that tear that sneaks down your cheek.  Whatever soul means to you, experiencing the music of Ambre McLean, may just leave you with a new definition.

“She must have been born to it. Ambre is a brilliant player, a brilliant songwriter and a brilliant performer.” (Craig Norris, CBC)

“McLean’s voice – is an instrument itself: gorgeous, sometimes with a rich, bluesy feel, other times a sweet mellow sound, alternatively soft and ferocious, always carrying these tunes straight to your musical heart.” (David Yazbeck,

“Seeing Ambre live is what live music should be like – Spontaneous Combustion… This is the new sound of Canada rising, soulful, thoughtful, and reflective.” (Michael Williams)

“I find her voice fantastically expressive.” (Alan Cross)
