“That’s not nothing.”

They are three words that keep Amelia Curran going on the hard days; ones that remind her to expect less of herself every now and again. To accept that — as a mental health advocate, feminist and Newfoundland artist in a tough, Toronto-centric industry — sometimes stepping back and only doing laundry in a 24-hour period is not nothing. It gives her room to breathe.

On Watershed, Curran’s new and eighth full-length, it’s clear that she has been needing to take a lot of breaths. Her trademark-sharp lyrics relay experiences of misogyny, frustration, internet bullies, depression. Throughout these 11 tracks Curran is louder — “brazen, is the word I settled on” — in words and sound than she has ever been, detailing exactly what she won’t stand for (“No More Quiet,” “Gravity”) while still finding tenderness on a signature folk ballad like “Act of Human Kindness.” The result is a lyrical work that is achingly, necessarily human. - CBC MUSIC

Amelia Curran - Watershed

WATERSHED

Watershed, Amelia Curran’s newest album, marks a threshold, a shake-up, a directional change. The tenor of this new album is openness (not to be confused with optimism), a reflection in part of Curran’s increasingly public efforts to battle the stigma of mental health issues in the arts. As a whole, the album calls for compassion and unification as a breakwater against the sea of cruelties we inflict upon each other, and upon ourselves.
