Amber Lawrence

Capturing the nation’s attention and heart with her songs about Australia, we are looking forward to see what Amber’s personal touch will be at QBE Insurance Carols by Candlelight in 2018.

A former Qantas Airways employee, and Chartered Accountant, Amber risked it all in 2008 to pursue a career in music. The risk has certainly paid off with Amber’s career riding high, most recently taking home 3 x CMAA Golden Guitar Awards in January 2018 for ‘Single of the Year’, ‘APRA AMCOS Song of the Year’ and ‘Vocal Collaboration of the Year’ for the song ‘Our Backyard’ with Travis Collins which they released in 2017.  Amber was also nominated for 5 Country Music Channel (CMC) Awards held in Queensland on 15 March 2018.  This follows on from Amber’s 2015 CMAA Golden Guitar and CMC ‘Female Artist of the Year’ awards.

In 2017 Amber was asked to write the song ‘100 Year Handshake’ by the American Australian Association and the honorable Joe Hockey (Australian US Ambassador) to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of the Battle of the Coral Sea.  Amber performed the anthemic song in New York in front of dignitaries and celebrities including President Donald Trump, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, Ambassador Joe Hockey, John Travolta and hundreds more. 

Never one to sit idle, 2017 saw Amber tour the country with Catherine Britt and Fanny Lumsden on their ‘Love N Lies’ tour and with Travis Collins on their ‘Our Backyard’ tour which continues in 2018.  On top of this Amber released her second children’s album ‘Aussie Aussie Christmas’ which hit Top 5 on the iTunes chart and a performance at the Channel 7 Adelaide Carols.
