THREE-TIME JUNO AWARDS NOMINEE DON AMERO JOINS MDM RECORDINGS INC.’S ARTIST ROSTER
Three time Juno Awards nominee Don Amero will be joining the MDM Recordings Inc. award-winning roster. An award winning storyteller, singer, songwriter and performer, Amero has been playing live and engaging audiences across Canada for more than a decade. He loves connecting with fans wherever he goes and sharing messages of encouragement, positivity, and beauty.
“I’m thrilled to welcome Don and his manager Laurie Brown to the MDM Recordings Family,” shares Mike Denney, President of MDM. “I’ve known Don for years and have seen him perform a few times, but his performance at the 2018 CCMA Awards industry luncheon in Hamilton was the ‘moment’ that sealed the deal for me in terms of wanting to partner and work with him. A true Gentleman, an exceptionally talented artist and a great performer, I can’t wait to see what’s ahead for Don.”
With his latest and sixth studio album, EVOLUTION, which was released in August of 2018, Amero stepped into the mainstream country music genre. With all brand new material that he believes it to be his strongest yet. Amero’s five previous albums have generated ten national and international awards, including one JUNO Award nomination in 2013 and two in 2016.
While a true musical talent, Amero is an artist first. His approach to his craft is rewarded every day, with accolades like “that voice is amazing,” “you’ve got a voice like silk,” and “I’m blown away by your ability.” Making beautiful music across seven albums, including Amero Little Christmas -released in November of 2018, Amero impresses wherever he goes with positive messages and inspiration.
His focus as an artist has been to create music that he hopes will be medicine for others. Raised in the notoriously tough north end of Winnipeg, Amero faced his share of adversity growing up. Overcoming the poverty, gangs, drugs, and violence that surrounded him, Amero’s life was tempered by love and support that held him up enabling him to thrive beyond those struggles and pursue his passion for music.
My name is Taryn and I am a writer and music enthusiast from Mississauga, Ontario. I am a graduate of Journalism/Media studies from the University of Guelph-Humber, and while I’m currently pursuing other career options, writing is still one of my greatest passions. And combining that passion with my deep love of music was an obviously easy choice. I’ve been writing with Canadian Beats for awhile now and I’ve loved every moment. When I’m not working or writing for CB, you can usually find me in the kitchen baking, writing, at a concert or travelling to new (and old) places with my favourite people!
