Review – Ambre McLean

By: Amanda Hather

Album – Me
iTunes Link –
Release Date – September 30th, 2014
Label – Northwood Records

Ambre McLean is a singer/songwriter from Ontario. If you aren’t familiar with McLean, she has been around the music scene in Canada for more than 10 years. She released her debut EP back in 2004 and has since released three studio albums, ‘Me’ being her latest.

The eight song release showcases her strong vocals perfectly. ‘Me’ is one of those albums that will be stuck in your head right after you listen to it, especially “Butterfly”. The song has beautiful vocals and harmonies that will leave you craving more. The beat behind “Run Rabbit” will have you dancing along in no time, and the guitar in “I Was Wrong” gives the song a darker feel to it. But out of all the songs “Wish I Could” is definitely my favourite and doesn’t sound like any other song I’ve heard before.

Over all, the album is amazing. If you’re like me and didn’t know about McLean before now, you’ll want to change that. Her vocals will pull you in and leave you impatient for more. No matter your genre of preference, you should check out this album, you likely won’t be disappointed.

Rating: 5/5

Ambre McLean on social media:

I’m a Toronto girl born and raised but have been living in Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick since 2010. Music and writing are my two passions, so what better place for me to be than a writer with Canadian Beats? I have been writing for the blog since May of 2013 and have had so many great experiences because of it. I listen to almost every kind of music but my favourites are pop rock, rock, indie, folk, and any other combinations of them. Concerts are definitely my favourite place to be, especially when you’re right against the barricade and can feel the energy from the band and the crowd, everyone singing the same lyrics and moving to the music. I also have a college degree in Business Administration and hope to one day be able to publish a novel.
