Amber Liadan’s current album, Warrior, will be available for purchase at her upcoming show at Bill Knight’s Cottage Club in Fish Hoek on Friday 26 January. Amber recorded and produced this, her first release, in London in 2016/17 while on tour.

Her authentic folk rock sound stems from her legendary rock star parents – Heather Mac and Tim Parr, who fronted 80’s rock band Ella Mental.

Open tunings

Amber’s specific nuances embrace rock and reggae supported by rustic open pentatonic guitar tunings “covering light and dark notes” congruent with her voice.

The singer-songwriter has been living in London for the last three years, honing her craft as a musician and developing a strong fan base.
