The birthplace of 'the amours' was the Halifax Creative Music Workshop taught by such renowned musicians as Jerry Granelli and guitar legend David Tronzo. In this melting pot of creativity and experimentation, veteran guitarist and songwriter Albert August asked jazz vocalist Arlene White, classical violinist Lei Park and laptop sonician Steve Slater to put a group together for a singer songwriter gig that he had previously booked.

Albert says, "I was playing soloand writing songs inspired by Steely Dan, Robert Johnson, Steve Earle, and the Beatles. I was also ready for something completely different. The Amours embody everything I love about music. The creativity, spontaneity, risk taking, composing without borders."

Several shows and stylistic transitions later, The Amours continue to surprise and adapt.
Initially The Amours were instrumentally/ sonically oriented, now they are primarily a vocal group.
