Canadian Juno Award-winning songwriter Amelia Curran has announced the release of her new album Watershed in the UK on April 21st through Six Shooter Records. She recently revealed a stop-motion video for her first single Gravity:
Amelia Curran is a songwriter, activist and mental health advocate from St John’s, Newfoundland. Curran’s music is distinguished by her intricate and elliptical lyrics, geologic in their resilience and oceanic in their depths.
In Canada, Curran has won or been nominated for JUNA Awards for three consecutive albums and is firmly established as one of the country’s preeminent poetic songwriters. Outside of Canada, Curran’s work has made an impression; in spite of its small-scale international release, They Promised You Mercy, Curran’s last album, received 4-star reviews in The Telegraph, Mojo and Maverick Magazine.
Watershed marks a threshold and a directional change. The tenor of this new album is openness, a reflection in part of Curran’s increasingly public efforts to battle the stigma of mental health issues in the arts. As a whole, the album calls for compassion and unification as a breakwater against the sea of cruelties we inflict upon each other, and upon ourselves.
Full UK Tour Dates are to be announced soon.
