Sisters Of Fate

BandCountryAcoustic

In its essence, Sister’s Of Fate consists of blending the warm vocal harmonies of Ambre McLean, Anna Rogers (McLean’s sister) and Danielle Todd. While beginning their careers in three separate places it seems only kizmet that these three women have crossed paths.

Biography

On a whim the "Sisters" put a last minute demo together and entered the Havelock Jamboree talent contest. It was the girls first show and they wow'd the audience with their tight harmony's and charming stage presence. For the first time in Havelock's contest history the judges gave the girls perfect scores across the board. The girls then went on to play The Marmora Country Festival and took the crowd there by storm as well, gaining the attention of Canada's own country sensation Steve Pitico (South Mountain Band)...the best is yet to come

OUR INDIVIDUAL PAST
Ambre McLean began singing and playing with the help and guidance of her parents, Sharon Smith-McLean and Peter McLean. By the age of twelve Ambre started writing and recording her own material. In the years that followed, she established a number of groups. A seven piece folk band, Kyn (two indie releases), which was fronted by Ambre and her mother Sharon. Kyn toured successfully throughout Canada and gained McLean the confidence and experience of playing to large crowds. McLean’s musical career also includes her own band, Sharon Said, a piano-based pop trio, as well as three full-length solo albums. Added successes include three-time grant recipient (Factor, OAC), and licensed composer of two original songs used by CBC and CNN for promotional purposes during both the 1995 World Nordic Championships and the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games.

Anna Rogers, originally from Vancouver, was also encouraged to sing and perform at a young age. Anna’s stepfather Peter McLean (biological father to Ambre) also helped her to find her voice and cultivate her musical calling. A few years later Anna co-founded the all girls, self-directed choral ensemble Aliqua (now signed to Nettwerk Records). After four years of developing and shaping Aliqua, Rogers decided to resign as one of their staple singers and make the move to Ontario in hopes of expanding her musical interests and developing a musical report with her sister McLean.

Danielle Todd is a budding signer-song writer in her own right. Similar to McLean and Rogers, Todd’s father (Jamie Todd) helped foster her natural musical ability. Her introduction to the stage was as a guest singer with her father’s band Hourglass, which toured throughout North America. Todd first crossed paths with McLean when her father encouraged her to join him at one of McLean’s live shows. That quickly materialized into McLean lending her expertise by coaching and mentoring Todd. As well, in the last year Todd has joined McLean doing backing vocals as part of the Ambre McLean Band. Since then, Todd has written and recorded her first EP, All I Can Be which features her playing guitar, piano and singing.

Lyrics

If Fate Were A Woman

Written By: Ambre McLean

If Fate were a woman
A. McLean  2005

I think the odds are like a million to one that fate, she is a woman

And I bet she sits there laughing at anyone who’ll question

I imagine she is kin to the mother of our nature

And that her father is as pillar for time is such a creature

The reason that she stuck her nose in between us, I’ll will never know

But if by some freak chance I meet her on the street I think I’ll ask her,

I think I’ll ask her

I saw you holding faiths hand , I\’m trying hard to like her

I know that she’s a friend of yours and you want me to trust her

But I can not shake the feeling that someone here is meddling

I heard her name is destiny I wonder what she has on me

The reason that she stuck her nose in between us, I’ll will never know

But if by some freak chance I meet her on the street I think I’ll ask her,

I think I’ll ask her

I think the odds are like a million to one that fate, she is a woman

And I bet she sits there laughing at anyone who’ll question

I imagine she is kin to the mother of our nature

And that her father is as pillar for time is such a creature

Time is such a creature

Time is such a creature

I Can't Decided

Written By: Ambre McLean

I Can't Decide (A. McLean)

Yes it's true I had never been
Before I travelled to
This state I am in
I tried to find you
But I couldn't find you
I never knew what you were doin'

Now I can't decided
If I am in or out of my mind
I've been workin' hard to find
All the pieces that make up
The whole heart
That used to be mine

I don't know where the hell I am
I do not recognize You or me
And I suppose these common clothes
Do not cover up the nakedness of me

Now I can't decided
If I am in or out of my mind
I've been workin' hard to find
All the pieces that make up
The whole heart
That used to be mine

Yes it's true
I have never been
Before I travelled to
This state I am in

Hudson

Written By: Ambre McLean

Hudson
(not recorded yet)

There is somethin' about the way you work a room
Baby you got all the moves
To make em swoon
There's somethin' about your look your devlish smile
Baby you got a way of drivin' em wild

But you can drive me to Hudson
You and me oh
It could be so cooool
You can drive me to Hudson
And I will show you a thing or two too

There's been a sumthin'
Hummin' round my head
I've been thinking about you all day And then in my bed
Why coudn't I just ignore it?
You're gonna be trouble for me
And I'm really askin' for it

But you can drive me to Hudson
You and me oh
It could be so cooool
You can drive me to Hudson
And I will show you a thing or two too

There is somethin' about the way you work a room
It's makin' me high oh-high
O O Over the moon
There's sumthin about the way you flash a smile
I find that I'm blinded
You are drivin' me doggedly wild

But you can drive me to Hudson
You and me oh
It could be so cooool
You can drive me to Hudson
And I will show you a thing or two too
Can we just drive?
Can we just drive?
Can you drive me to Hudson?
