On They Promised You Mercy Amelia’s knife-sharp lyrics find peace and even cheerfulness amidst lush layers provided by award-winning producer Michael Phillip Wojewoda’s nuanced studio vision. The album, recorded at Toronto’s Revolution Recording Studios, is a poised, focused and consummate work that showcases Amelia’s singular songwriting talent. They Promised You Mercy raises the lyrical bar yet again with its unrivaled eloquence.
They Promised You Mercy heralds an impressive list of accomplished Canadian players that include guitarist Martin Tielli of the Rheostatics who also painted the portrait for the albums cover artwork, lap steel guitarist Christine Bougie (Bahamas), trombonist William Carn (Elton John), saxophonist Gene Hardy (Michael Bublé), pianist Aaron Davis (Holly Cole Trio), guitarist Dean Drouillard (Sarah Harmer) and drummer Joshua Van Tassel (Great Lake Swimmers).

Curran has been regarded as a masterful songwriter and lyricist for more than a decade at home in her beloved east coast. Since her Polaris Music Prize nomination and JUNO win in 2010 for her Hunter, Hunter album, Curran has received four ECMA nominations, four Music Newfoundland awards, three Music Nova Scotia awards and a JUNO Award nomination for Roots and Traditional Album of the Year for her Spectators album in 2012. With They Promised You Mercy, Amelia Curran has solidified the reputation as an heir to Leonard Cohen’s songwriting throne delivering without a doubt, an album of exceptional quality, deserving of such praise.
