From years playing drums in a rock band to a successful career in pop and, now a foray back to her country roots, there are few Canadian entertainers as dynamic as Amy Hef.
Amy Hef’s musical style has recently settled into the country music realm and her debut country single “Between Us” launched in early 2022, garnering plenty of Canadian country radio airplay. Now, as an established up and comer in the country music scene in Canada, she has performed at Cavendish Beach Music Festival, Edmonton Pride 2022 and more.
Born and raised in Saskatchewan and having lived in Los Angeles and Fort McMurray, Amy Hef now calls Calgary home, alongside her wife and Pomeranian, which she says are loved equally. The youngest of five children, Amy was raised in within a deeply religious family, and as an adult had to look inward to become empowered, though she is now recognized as one of the few out-and-proud queer musicians in the province.
Before her own solo work, Amy worked as a professional drummer who toured North America. In 2013, winning the 90.3 AMP Radio’s Rock Star competition helped reinforce the fact that venturing into a solo career was the right creative decision.
Her 2014 single “Creepin’ Me Out” went into heavy rotation at pop radio stations across the country and the 2017 release “Drunk On Conversation” reached over 250,000 streams across DSP’s. Over the years, Amy’s music has earned placements in famous television series such as Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Vanderpump Rules and other MTV programming.
Amy Hef feels at home on any stage, and has performed for sold-out crowds in a wide spectrum of venues from clubs to major events and Pride festivals. Her fresh and bright perspective is captured in every song and every live show. Equal parts natural talent, compassion, and humour, she’s a multifaceted artist who doesn’t let one genre define her when it comes to putting on a memorable performance.
There is no one out there quite like Amy Hef, and she will be the first to tell you that she is bringing the party!
