The Amanda Jackson Band is about connecting - with their lyrics, their audience, the planet, and each other. Comprised of Amanda Jackson (vocals), Dale McKie (guitar, harmonica) and Todd MacLean (guitar, piano, sax), the trio creates an intimate listening experience that leaves the audience feeling as if they’ve had the chance to peer into the soul of the band.

Amanda’s powerful voice highlights the vulnerability of their lyrics, adding to the honesty of the story-telling. Their original songs get to the core of the human experience with a strong emphasis on social awareness and what makes us human. Each band member brings a wealth of experience from different genres of music, resulting in a perfectly eclectic joining of deep lyrics, pitch perfect musical execution and powerful vocals. Amanda and Dale are best known for their time with the popular, multi-award winning, Bad Habits. Todd is a highly sought-after multi-instrumentalist, a former member of the ECMA-winning group English Words and was named Musician of the Year at the 2011 Music PEI Awards.

In February 2016, the band released Live at Harmony House. In July 2017, the popular live album was followed up with the much anticipated studio debut, Fire in the Blue. Fire in the Blue won the 2018 Music PEI Award for Urban recording of the Year and garnered two additional nominations for Group Recording and New Artist of the Year. In early 2018, the band received national attention as one of the top 10 finalists for the 2018 CBC Searchlight competition, earning their spot as one of the top five chosen by voters across the country for their song “Dance into the Light”. They were also highlighted by the CBC producers as one of the standouts from the Top 100.

Since first forming in 2014, Amanda Jackson Band has maintained the flexibility to perform as both the full five-piece band on large stages as well as the original dynamic trio for more intimate settings. They’ve shared their music on such stages as Harvest Jazz & Blues Festival, Dutch Mason Blues Festival, Rock the Boat Festival, Nathan Phillips Square, Toronto for Earth Day. In October 2017, the trio had the prestigious opportunity to open for the legendary Buffy Sainte-Marie. They also played host to the successful Amanda Jackson Band & Friends Concert Series at the historic Haviland Club which featured favourite Maritime artists including Erin Costelo, Ross Neilsen, Nudie and many more.

"Jackson's rich and emotive voice is going to stand out in any setting, and wisely the band lets her shine." - Bob Mersereau – Canadian Arts Journalist

"Amazing song and group!!! I have loved Amanda's powerful singing and these super-talented band members for years! Truly one of the best Canadian female vocalists on the go! Really honoured that they would invite me to make their first music video." - John Hopkins, Square Deal Productions Atlantic Inc. - Award Winning Director

"A beautiful sonic experience, that mixes tone with imagination, and takes the listener on a musical journey into the human heart." - Terry Parsons - CHMR 93.5 FM Radio Host
