About Amber

AMBER LAWRENCE

Amber Lawrence is a 5 times Golden Guitar winning Australian singer-songwriter who captures the nation’s attention and heart with her uplifting songs of self-belief, love, family and ordinary Australians.

Multi-Golden Guitar winner Amber Lawrence today releases her highly anticipated new album, Living for the Highlights through ABC Music. Download/stream/buy HERE.

 

This is Amber’s seventh studio album, showcasing contemporary country at its finest. It is a realistic take on life after three years of highs and lows and follows the release of her much-loved 2019 long player, Spark. She will launch the album this evening at Rouse Hill’s Australian Hotel Brewery – limited tickets are still available.

 

Living for the Highlights features Amber’s new single and album title track, recorded with Australian country music favourites, Darlinghurst.  Discussing the collaboration, Darlinghurst said, “From the moment we heard the song, the melody was cemented. It was incredible to see all the parts come together and an honour that Amber wanted us to be a part of her TITLE Track! It’s an upbeat, fist pumping, exciting and fun song. The music video highlights that!  Thank you Amber Lawrence for putting your trust in us, we had a blast.”  The accompanying “party bus” video features all 4 members of Darlinghurst alongside Amber and was directed by Ian Ritter.

 

Living for the Highlights is the perfect combination of fun and upbeat party songs, mixed with delicate and poignant tributes and love letters.  It addresses the challenges of the last few years, reflecting on good and bad times whilst providing an aspirational vision for the future. From the delicate and vulnerable lyrics of The Crash and You Were Mine, through the touching tributes of Jewel and I’m Coming Home, to the exciting and dance-inducing tracks Bring it Back, Fill it Up, Living for the Highlights, Sing and Making up for Lost Wine – it has it all.

 

Amber’s insightful and truthful songwriting has seen her craft a detailed, rich story of what it means to deal with the worst life can hand you. On Bring it Back she directly addresses the challenges of the music industry in recent times, and on the devastating You Were Mine she documents the greatest tragedy and heartbreak of her life.

 

Conversely, there is a great deal of joy on this album – via I’m Coming Home, Jewel and Song, and in Rise featuring Casey Donovan, as well as the already released singles Bring it Back and Fill it Up.

 

There is an acknowledgement of anger too, in the song Angry, in which Lawrence sings: ‘She had to get angry in order to get happy’. On Living for the Highlights Amber steps into her power as a singer and songwriter and shows that you can sow the seeds of anger, frustration and pain and from them grow something strong, beautiful, happy and free. 

 

Making Up for Lost Wine was written with Nashville hit makers Kylie Sackley and Phil Barton and the feel good, uber country tune is what happens when you follow Amber’s previous advice in her 2016 hit Cheers to the Girls and kick that bad partner to the curb! 

 

Amber Lawrence is a five-time Golden Guitar winner, scoring her most recent statue for her poignant and stunning collaboration with fellow country artists Dianna Corcoran, Aleyce Simmonds, Kirsty Lee Akers on their rendition of John Williamson’s True Blue (also performed on the forecourt of the Sydney Opera House for Australia Day Live 2022). She was nominated for Female Artist of the Year at the 2022 Golden Guitars, and recently filled in for Beccy Cole as the host of ABC Radio’s Saturday Night Country in addition to her iHeart Country radio program.

 

Amber is prolific – not only has she released 7 studio albums, but 3 acclaimed children’s albums (including an ARIA nominated kid’s album The Kid’s Gone Country II), an award-winning collaboration album with Travis Collins, a live album and a live DVD.  She is also one of our hardest working artists, with a touring schedule to rival any!
