Artist Biography Available in: Amelia Curran is a Canadian singer-songwriter. She was born in St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador and currently lives in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The National Post describes her music as "a bit like Leonard Cohen being channeled in a dusty saloon by Patsy Cline." Curran started playing guitar and writing songs as a teenager and eventually dropped out of university in order to busk on the streets of St. John's. She describes her signing to Six Shooter Records as a "promotion" and goes on to say "I have a lot more work to do, more often, as a result of which I will make some more money and sell some more records. But it is the same job that I have been doing for ten years." In addition to being a musician, Curran is also a playwright and actor, and has had her plays performed in fringe festivals. On April 17, 2010, Curran won a Juno Award in the category of Roots and Traditional Album of the Year: Solo. Curran also won first prize (Folk category) of the prestigious 15th Annual USA Songwriting Competition.
