Amber Lawrence is an award-winning singer-songwriter and winner of the 2015 ‘Female Artist of the Year’ award at the Australian CMAA Golden Guitar awards.
Amber’s recent success follows the launch of her fourth album Superheroes, which debuted at number three on the ARIA Country Charts. The album included hit singles ‘Superhero’ and ‘The Lifesaver’ (which won Contemporary Lyric of the Year at the 2015 Bush Laureate Awards).
In 2012, Amber launched '3' her third album, loved by fans and critics alike, to a sold out Tamworth Capitol Theatre Audience. The second single, ‘The Man across the Street’ was the story of a Vietnam Veteran who lived across the street and saved Amber when as a toddler, she wandered onto the street. This album lead to Amber being invited to perform for Australia’s Defence Force personnel in the Middle East and at the ANZAC Day Football Match.
Amber has released 15 singles over the course of her career that have either reached #1 or Top 5 on the Country Music Radio Chart and the CMC Video charts. She has received 12 country music awards, eight Golden Guitar nominations and two APRA nominations.
"I'm honoured to have been asked to help shine a light on the great work RSL DefenceCare does for our returned and injured Defence Force Personnel. I have toured overseas twice to sing for our troops, and this has given me a heightened awareness of the risk our men and women place themselves in, and the toll that may take on themselves and their family."
“My job is easy – I sing songs – but I value the amazing job our Defence Force does for us, and anything I can do to help those who may be struggling as a result of the amazing job they do for all of us Australians, is a privilege.”
“RSL DefenceCare is honoured to have Amber Lawrence as an Ambassador. We are grateful for her understanding of the challenges facing many of our service men and women and their families and her willingness to join with us to help when our Defence members need a helping hand,” Robyn Collins, General Manager, RSL DefenceCare.
