Don Amero
"Life's Been Pretty Sweet"

From the album

Featured track, available from February 18 to February 25

Red Road Music II returns to the West End Cultural Centre stage on February 18, featuring performances by Don Amero, Burnt - Project 1, and Nunavut's Lucie Idlout. Hosted by rapper and CBC personality Wab Kinew and NCI-FM's Melissa Spence, the special concert will be recorded for later broadcast on CBC.

Amero, who played the first Red Road Music concert in 2007, will be offering a taste of his upcoming third release. The as-yet-untitled album follows up Deepening, which picked up a Canadian Folk Music Award and a Canadian Aboriginal Music Award in 2009. After the show at the WECC, Amero will head to Vancouver to play at the 2010 Winter Olympics before preparing for a cross-Canada tour in May and June. He'll also be a featured guest with the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra during its Indiginous Fest in June. 

You can hear Amero's new song, "Life's Been Pretty Sweet," from The Loudspeaker until February 25. Co-written with Arun Chaturvedi and Chris Burke-Gaffney, it's a preview of what you can catch at Red Road Music II on February 18.
