Keep your eyes and ears on these tal­ented mu­si­cians.

Aca­reer in mu­sic is the stuff that dreams are made of. You have the tal­ent, you want to share your pas­sion, hear the ap­plause, feel the love and win the awards! But, it’s no easy feat – and one might think that start­ing out in a smaller Cana­dian city can be a chal­lenge . . .

Ot­tawa at Home pro­files four tal­ented lo­cals who prove that Ot­tawa just might be the per­fect place for a bud­ding mu­si­cian to get their start. With im­pres­sive awards and ac­co­lades un­der their belt, these ex­cit­ing dynamos are on their way to mak­ing big names for them­selves in the mu­sic in­dus­try. And we ex­pect to hear more from them as we watch their suc­cess grow!

AMANDA RHEAUME

In­ter­na­tion­ally ac­claimed 28-year-old singer, song­writer and gui­tarist.

What is your con­nec­tion to Ot­tawa?

I was born and raised and have lived most of my life in Ot­tawa. A lot of my im­me­di­ate fam­ily still lives here. It is home.

Who in­spires you most mu­si­cally?

In the be­gin­ning, Ala­nis Moris­sette, Sh­eryl Crow and Ani Difranco. These days, Amelia Cur­ran, Lynn Miles, Neil Young, Townes Van Zandt and more.
