Amanda Bon is an up-and-coming Ottawa singer/songwriter. In 2010 she assembled some of the city's most seasoned players and together they recorded and released their debut album, Juniper Weekends (2011). Reminiscent of Alison Krauss and Union Station, the band brings together elements of country, folk and bluegrass. Its members include Amanda Bon (lead vocals, acoustic guitar), Danny Artuso (guitar, pedal steel, background vocals), Ken Kanwisher (upright bass, accordion) and Gilles Leclerc (mandolin, background vocals). Recently having adopted the name Amanda Bon & The Outskirts, since appearing on the scene this band has been enjoying the support of local radio stations and music listeners, finding themselves at Ottawa Bluesfest 2012 and sharing the stage with Jenn Grant as part of the NAC Presents concert series. They recently released their second album, Down The Road (2013), another collection of entirely original songs, this time featuring some exciting guest musicians. Whether youre looking for a chorus you can tap your foot to, impressive instrumentals, strong lyrical content or catchy melodies, youll like his band. Theyre fun to watch and they bring a clean, refreshing sound to the stage.
