Amber Epp

Amber Epp

The shortest distance between a Mennonite choir and an open-air jazz patio in Havana is Amber Epp. A childhood of singing at the dinner table and exploring the piano (with her fingers and her toes) has not surprisingly culminated in music filled with adventure, discovery, joy, and a Western Canadian Music Award for one of her four CDs. A connoisseur of musical genres, Amber transports you with her to wherever she’s going. No matter the language, no matter the country, from Cuba to the Yukon, Amber leaves you with a heart pumping out the rhythms of the world.

“You instantly know you’re in great hands from the moment Amber Epp begins singing. The depth and breadth of her skill becomes evident – and suddenly, you are transported to wherever she wants to take you, and you can’t help but be entirely seduced.”
– Heather Bishop
