“Amy Blanding sings with conviction and soul. She delivers songs that tell stories that remind us of what is good.” –Kym Gouchie
Known for her powerful voice and profound stage presence, Amy Blanding collects moments in the Northern wild and turns them into stalwart folk songs with a raw edge. Born in Colorado and raised in PEI, she took the long way home to Prince George, BC, where she finds great inspiration in the mountains and rivers of the traditional and unceded territory of the Lheidli T’enneh. Cutting her teeth with nationally-recognized folk band Black Spruce Bog, Amy Blanding’s music is the culmination of an outdoor life, led heart-first. Performing with an unbridled, often unnerving authenticity and passion, Amy’s joy on stage is palpable.
