Biography

Amber Lee has honed her musical style in a way that can only be described as grass roots guerrilla warfare - by listening and watching other musicians and by working through deep personal experiences. Though she enjoyed singing as a child, the Ontario native never struck out to be a professional musician. She was, however, always an artist at heart.

In her college days, Amber majored in film at Concordia and business at both the Richard Ivey School of Business in Canada and The Rotterdam School of Management in the Netherlands. It wasn't until the summer after her 19th birthday that Amber began playing the guitar and penning songs to accompany. She became instantly hooked, and quickly thereafter worked her way out of the living rooms of friends, and onto the stage of various venues across Canada and New York City.

Despite a fairly accidental and atypical start, music has been a constant thread in her life that has always pointed back towards shaping who she is as a person, a songwriter and an entertainer. Her songs weave the stories, experiences and seasoning of a poet and an explorer: loving, effusive, and courageous. They are relatable, yet intensely personal.

Amber's intoxicating voice is illuminated through her meaningful and captivating lyrics as she croons with rhythmic strength and powerful harmonies on the guitar. At the end of the day it's her genuine enthusiasm, irrevocable humor, and ever-approachable nature that makes her undeniably relatable to the audiences she plays for.
