An engaging storyteller, singer-songwriter and performer, three-time JUNO Award nominee Don Amero has been tirelessly touring, performing, and speaking across Canada for the last decade, earning the respect and attention of the Canadian Music industry and fans alike. With the rare ability to effortlessly and genuinely connect with his audience, Amero, who is of Cree and Métis heritage, has taken the skills he utilizes on stage and applied them to his advocacy work within Indigenous communities and beyond, including his participation as a youth mentor for the Winnipeg Jets and True North Youth Foundation’s ‘Project 11’. An avid public speaker, Amero created the ‘Music Is Medicine’ workshop, presenting the impact and power music has mentally and physically, and he serves as the first ever advisor and Chair of the CCMA Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Committee.
Last fall, Amero delivered his latest EP Nothing Is Meaningless, featuring the previously released ‘You Can’t Always Be 21’ – skyrocketing his profile as he made appearances on The Marilyn Denis Show, ET Canada, Etalk, Your Morning, the CCMA Awards national broadcast and more, and earning him a 2022 CCMA Award nomination for ‘Ford F-150 Album of the Year”. Amero competed as a semi-finalist in the 2020/2021 SiriusXM Top of the Country competition in partnership with the CCMA. Previous single, ‘My Poor Mama,’, is teeming with classic country twang and flush with the iconic storytelling the genre is known for, and his release ‘Let You’, a duet featuring Raquel Cole continues to impact at Canadian country radio. As the host of the 2021 MCMA Awards, Amero also took home three of the biggest awards of the evening; “Male Artist of the Year”, “Interactive Artist, Duo or Group of the Year” and “Dauphin’s Countryfest Festival Or Event of the Year” for his Amero Little Christmas Live @ The Burton Cummings Theatre (Live Stream). The multi-talented artist is currently on the road making stops across the country as part of the Home-Town Hoedown tour with Tim and the Glory Boys and recently released ‘Ain’t Too Late’, the lead single off his forthcoming EP set to be released in 2023.
