Sample Song: “Young Forever”
Don Amero has a way of captivating audience s of all ages with his powerful vocals, percussion-style guitar play, and engaging storytelling. He is often called upon as a keynote speaker, and to deliver workshops for youth. His story inspires, and his message is one of encouragement, positivity and beauty. He continues to impress wherever he goes.
You can call Winnipeg’s Don Amero one of the hardest working independent musicians in showbiz today. Since leaving his job as a hardwood flooring installer five years ago to pursue music fulltime, the singer/songwriter has toured coast-to-coast, headlined concerts, presented at festivals, performed with the symphony, and played national television.
Don’s musical style has been likened to John-Mayer-meets-Keith-Urban. His three albums (Change Your Life, Deepening, The Long Way Home) have generated five national and international awards – Best Country Song (2012 Indian Summer Music Awards), Aboriginal Recording of the Year (2011 Western Canadian Music Awards), Best Folk Recording (2011 Native American Music Awards), Aboriginal Songwriter of the Year (2009 Canadian Folk Music Awards), Male Artist of the Year (2009 Canadian Aboriginal Music Awards) – and 21 more nominations.
Heart On My Sleeve is Don’s fourth album, and a self-produced labour of love. He proudly calls it his most personal album to date, and if you listen from beginning to end, it tells a story. Heart On My Sleeve is being released October 24, 2012, at an “intimate and international” house concert streamed live on APTN.ca.
On the radio front, Don has seen four songs climb to #1 on the National Aboriginal Countdown. On commercial radio, two tracks –Turn These Grey Skies Blue and original holiday song All I Need This Christmas – earned notable “most active download” designations on DMDS.com, and were spun on stations across Canada.
