SHE’S a favourite with the adults and the kids alike, and Golden Guitar winning artist Amber Lawrence is back with another album which she says is all about finding happiness.
Happy Ever After is the latest CD from the singer songwriter which will be released on September 30.
In the lead up to the launch in her hometown of Sydney, Lawrence released the title track and music video, which in one night had already garnered tens of thousands of views.
It comes on the back of the success of her kids album, The Kid’s Gone Country, released earlier in the year.
Lawrence told The Leader she was pleasantly surprised by the feedback the first single had received.
“It went very well, I was very pleasantly surprised,” she said.
“I guess you kind of lose touch thinking you should get better as you go along in your career, you can get a bit buried under songs you’ve already released and different opinions.”
She described her album as positive and reflects the stage she feels she’s in with her life.
There are no double meanings to her songs either, with Lawrence putting pen to paper and telling it how it is.
I have never tried to sound anything other than country, I am country and I am contemporary country.
“It’s a really positive vibe for the new album, I want people to be excited and not thinking it’s exactly the same as the last one - I do think it sounds and looks different,” she said.
“It’s another new step in the direction I want to go in - I want to be one of the top women and artists in this game.
“I have never tried to sound anything other than country, I am country and I am contemporary country which means sometimes I don’t get gigs… I want my music to reflect that positive and progressive Australian country sound.
“This album is kind of me, in my mid 30s and thinking that I am happy - rather than six years ago thinking how am I going to be happy and how am I going to get out of this hard time with break ups and making mistakes and all of that.
“In this album I’m happy, maybe not perfect or may not how I envisaged but it’s happy ever after.”
All roads lead to Tamworth for Lawrence when she arrives for the Tamworth Country Music Festival in January.
