Over the past three years, Banff native Amelie Patterson has been navigating her way through the music industry one soulful lesson at a time. Always taking note, Patterson has culminated these trials and tribulations into a strikingly personal album, her debut release “Roll Honey Roll” dropped this past Friday.
Taken from the lyrics of the album’s lead single ‘Tic Tac Blues,’ “Roll Honey Roll” speaks to Patterson’s tenacious character. From pushing through the consuming feeling of being lost in tracks such as “Place Where I’m From” and “Mirage” to the intimate vulnerability of “Lights Down Low,” Patterson’s songwriting speaks volumes to the voice in all of us that tells us to keep moving on.
More than just her debut release, “Roll Honey Roll” has evolved into Patterson’s own person mantra for her career, “It’s a reminder to myself that there is no make or break moment in music,” states Patterson. “Work hard and make good music and there will be opportunities for you to excel.”
With performances confirmed next month at Banff’s Wild Bill’s (July 4) and the Calgary Folk Festival (July 23 & 24), this release is just the beginning for Patterson. Fans are encouraged to keep a close eye on her website for future updates as a summer tour is not too far off into the horizon.
