An engaging storyteller, singer-songwriter and performer, three-time JUNO Award nominee Don Amero has been tirelessly touring, performing and speaking across Canada for the last decade, earning the respect and attention of the Canadian Music industry and fans alike. With a proven ability to effortlessly and genuinely connect with his audience, his talents have been much sought after, and in early 2019 he became a part of the MDM Recordings Inc. roster.
He has also been recognised for his work as an amplifier of Indigenous thought and ideas. Amero, who is of Cree and Metis heritage, hopes to continue the work being done when it comes to building bridges between all communities in Canada.
“Music Lover”, his debut single after signing with MDM Recordings Inc., was released in June 2019, with the re-release of his album “Amero Little Christmas” following shortly after in October 2019. In December, Amero took the Christmas album to the stage, delivering his new spin on a classic Christmas variety show to a hometown crowd at Winnipeg’s Burton Cummings Theatre with the “Amero Little Christmas” show. This past year, Amero played multiple festival dates across the country including slots at Big Valley Jamboree and Manitoulin Country Fest, and spent time on the road as part of George Canyon’s “Hit After Hit” tour, performing alongside Doc Walker and CCMA Hall of Fame inductee Charlie Major. With uplifting beauty across seven albums, Amero creates a lasting impression, with an artistic focus in making music that he hopes will be medicine for others. His current single “Morning Coffee” dropped this January, and is currently making waves at Canadian country radio.
