Amanda Marshall25 & COUNTING: THE HEAVY LIFTING TOUR
with special guest Sophia Fracassi
Live Nation presents
Diamond-selling and multi-JUNO Award nominated singer-songwriter Amanda Marshall is set to release a brand new original song collection entitled Heavy Lifting (Coalition Music (Records) / The Orchard) this summer, and brings the "25 & Counting: The Heavy Lifting Tour" to Massey Hall this June. The tour will feature special guest Sophia Fracassi, Kiss Radio's February and March “One to Watch 2023”.
Additionally, Marshall is releasing a special vinyl re-issue of her 1995 self-titled, breakthrough debut album. Powered by her trademark soulful voice, Amanda Marshall has the distinction of being one of only 24 Canadian albums to achieve Diamond certification in Canada, the result of sales exceeding one million copies domestically.
Marshall followed up her debut with two more multi-Platinum selling albums, 1999’s Tuesday’s Child (produced by legendary Rolling Stones and Bonnie Raitt producer Don Was) and 2001’s Everybody’s Got A Story (a collaboration with music great Peter Asher). After spending a decade and a half away from the scene and re-tooling every aspect of her career, Marshall is extremely excited to be returning with Heavy Lifting, a record she is proud to have made largely on her own for the first time in her career.
The new 11-song collection demonstrates that Marshall’s voice remains a force of nature, and that her skills are as sharp as ever. It’s evident on Heavy Lifting’s opening track and first single “I Hope She Cheats” (written by Marsha Ambrosius and Canei Finch), featuring a searing lyric about getting over heartbreak and Marshall seamlessly blending her trademark soulful blues-rock approach with modern R&B.
