Over the course of five albums made with the backing of influential Six Shooter Records label, Amelia Curran’s (www.ameliacurran.com) name became one that was known and respected across the country and beyond Canada's borders. She’s won just about every music award there is in Canada, including a Juno, SOCAN award, Canadian Folk Music awards, and multiple awards on Canada’s East Coast, where she makes her home.
In 2014, Amelia spearheaded a project called This Video, which is a star-studded song and video that presents some startling facts about depression and suicide, but ends with hope, optimism, and a call to action.
She’s made other powerful documentary films since then, and you can find a few of them along with her music and much more information at ameliacurran.com
This Video eventually led Amelia to form an organization called It’s Mental (itsmental.ca), a grassroots community organization that focuses on the funding and sharing of knowledge on mental health realities and first aid mental health training to help safeguard our communities, families, and friends.
