Juno nominee Amanda Rheaumes new album, The Spaces In Between, is set to be released on May 27, and she’s just released a new single for us to check out.
“’All Sides Of Me’ is a song about vulnerability and the practice of allowing oneself and others to see, love, and respect all aspects of our identity and being,” Amanda said of it in a news release. “I want this song to inspire more self-love and discourage hiding of any dreams, beliefs, questions and true desires. This song highlights the concerns we can all have at times, surrounding “enough-ness” and “lovability”. I encourage everyone to consider all of the gifts that come with letting your true self shine.”
The song was co-written with Sierra Noble, and the entire album is produced by Hill Kourkoutis, the first woman to be ever be nominated in the Recording Engineer of the Year category at the Junos (go, Hill!)
It’s out on Ishkode Records, the Indigenous record label Amanda co-founded with ShoShona Kish of Digging Roots.
Amanda comes from a long line of tireless, transformational organizers and activists, and carries this lineage forward in her ever-growing role as a crucial builder of Indigenous music infrastructure and community. From the International Indigenous Music Summit, to the National Indigenous Music Office, the goal of empowering Indigenous sovereignty in the music industry drives all of her work.
