Folk Roots Radio Episode 428: feat. Amanda Rheaume & More New Releases

Episode 428 of Folk Roots Radio features an interview with Juno nominated Métis singer-songwriter Amanda Rheaume who joins us to chat about her fifth album “The Skin I’m In”, the follow up to her very well received 2016 album “Holding Patterns”. The Skin I’m In is an upbeat Americana-pop roots recording with a central message, most powerfully stated on the title track (and first single), that it’s really okay to just be you! It’s a great interview – and definitely worth sticking around for. As usual, we also take a look at more of the new releases we’ve received, and this time around we listen to new music from Kate Weekes, Christian Howse, Earle and Coffin, John McCutcheon, BackWest, Rich Krueger and Adam Baxter. Check out the full playlist below.


The Skin I’m In was produced by Colin Cripps (Blue Rodeo, Jim Cuddy Band) and features nine original songs, co-written with Jason Blaine, Justin Glasco (Andrew Bird, Avril Lavigne), Tim Bovacanti, Melanie Brulée, Jim Bryson and more. Check out the great new video for the first single The Skin I’m In HERE.

Amanda Rheaume will be releasing the new album with some Ontario shows, including Ottawa (Feb 16), Toronto (Feb 21), Kingston (Feb 23) and Peterborough (Mar 1) before heading to Europe for a spring tour. We caught up with Amanda Rheaume in Toronto to chat about the new album.
