Amanda Jackson Band is about connecting – with their lyrics, their audience, the planet, and each other. Comprised of Amanda Jackson (vocals), Dale McKie (guitar, harmonica), Todd MacLean (guitar, piano, sax), the band creates an intimate listening experience that leaves the audience feeling as if they’ve had the chance to peer into the soul of the band. Amanda’s powerful voice highlights the vulnerability of their lyrics, adding to the honesty of the story-telling and their original songs get to the core of the human experience with a strong emphasis on social awareness and what makes us human.
Their debut studio album, Fire in the Blue, won the 2018 Music PEI Award for Urban recording of the Year and garnered two additional nominations for Group Recording and New Artist of the Year. In early 2018, the band received national attention as one of the top 10 finalists for the 2018 CBC Searchlight competition, earning their spot as one of the top five chosen by voters across the country for their song “Dance into the Light”. They were also highlighted by the CBC producers as one of the standouts from the Top 100.
