UK / IRELAND TOUR UPDATE
Due to unexpected circumstances, we regret to inform you that all of Amelia Curran’s UK/Ireland tour dates are cancelled. Please contact the promoter or venue for more details. We hope to reschedule the tour as soon as possible.
From Amelia, "Hey all - I’m ok, thanks for the notes of concern. Unfortunately, I was denied entry to the UK yesterday due to complications with the sponsorship license granting me the right to work legally in the UK. I was sent back home after a lovely day with the customs agents at Heathrow. I have toured the UK many times in the past with no issue with my work visa however, entry is always at the discretion of the customs officers and their interpretation of changing immigration rules and regulations. I’m very sorry and really hope to be back soon."

“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
