About The Artist
Amelie Patterson's latest single is The War, an anthem “for those who need it”. It's a song about recognizing the invisible struggles that others are going through, and finding your own place as you lend support for a battle you can’t fight. The War was produced by Will Maclellan (Phoebe Bridgers, Paul McCartny, Taylor Swift) with long-time collaborators Barry Mason, Carson Gant and Kyle Tenove. A deeply intimate and vulnerable vocal take is cradled by a guitar tone nostalgic of vinyl recordings, held aloft by organic instruments and a dynamic rhythm.
Patterson has performed alongside Serena Ryder, Matt Andersen and Sarah Harmer and has been awarded Alternative Recording of the Year at the YYC Music Awards, as well as received Calgary’s coveted White Hat. Amelie was the inaugural poet-laureate of Banff, Alberta.
