"The Spaces In Between" (2022):
A Citizen of the Métis Nation, and proud member of the 2SLGBTQ+ community, Amanda Rheaume’s music is indeed from the heart, and the land. The Spaces In Between, Rheaume’s sixth album, blends country rock touchstones with an earthy, tumbled finish, seeking to answer, for herself, the complex question of identity and history. The album interrogates the colonial record and Rheaume’s place in the bigger picture, taking the listener on a Copperhead Road-esque journey. In a genre characterized by anthems of underdogs, assumptions and unfair advantages, Rheaume’s sound and story crucially and radically expand the boundaries, geographic and cultural, to make space for new perspectives on resistance and resilience. Throughout The Spaces In Between, spoken word interludes by Métis leader Tony Belcourt inform and expand upon the album’s themes. Amidst songs that explore Rheaume’s personal experience and perspective of identity, Belcourt’s statements ground and expand upon the album’s exploration and reckoning with the past and present. The Spaces In Between was produced and mixed by Hill Kourkoutis, recently nominated for JUNO Award's Recording Engineer of the Year. “It is my hope that this album and the interludes can shine a light on the complexities of mixed identity and offer comfort and belonging to anyone struggling to find and celebrate their place,” says Amanda. The Spaces In Between available worldwide May 27 2022 via Ishkōdé Records.
