Record Store Day Australia is the annual celebration of the record store and will once again take place in music stores right across the country on Saturday 18th April 2015 with special promotions, in-store appearances, one off releases, special offers and lots more activity soon to be announced.
AMRA (Australian Music Retailers Association, organisers of Record Store Day Australia) has announced that one of the ambassadors for 2015 is award winning singer songwriter Amber Lawrence, reigning 2015 CMAA Golden Guitar Female Artist of the Year.
“Amber is one of the hardest working, most committed musicians I know” said George Papadopoulos, chairman of AMRA, which runs Record Store Day Australia. “Fifteen singles in the Top Five, recipient of no less than 12 country music awards, 8 Golden Guitar nominations, 2 APRA nominations and now the Female Artist of the Year. We’re honoured to have her on our roster this year.”
Amber Lawrence said, “Record stores are the lifeblood of my business – retailers Australia wide have helped introduce my music to a wealth of new people. Musicians need record stores, more importantly, music lovers need record stores!! I can’t wait to meet more music lovers on Record Store Day Australia.”
Amber will be in-store at St Mary’s Sound, in Western Sydney on the day.
