AMANDA MARSHALL HEADLINES SATURDAY, AUGUST 5th

She’s back, better than ever, and ready to make Saturday night, August 5th, at Summer in the Park rock like crazy.  Canadian pop-rock super star Amanda Marshall ignites the night with her iconic sound.

Amanda Marshall has released three studio albums, the first was certified Diamond in Canada, with the latter two certified 3x Platinum and Platinum respectively.  She is best known for her 1996 single, “Birmingham” which reached number 3 in Canada.

Her debut album Amanda Marshall was released in 1995, becoming  a major success in Canada, generating a great deal of airplay and spawning six Top 40 hits -- "Let It Rain", "Beautiful Goodbye", "Dark Horse", "Fall From Grace", "Sitting on Top of the World", and "Birmingham", her most successful hit in Canada and the only song to reach the US charts.

In 1996, Marshall's song "This Could Take All Night" was included in the original soundtrack of the motion picture Tin Cup. In 1997, Marshall's song "I'll Be Okay" was included in the original soundtrack for My Best Friend’s Wedding.

In 2001, Marshall released her third album, Everybody's Got a Story. It marked a change in style and sound for Marshall, with a noticeable R&B influence. Her singles "Everybody's Got a Story" and "Sunday Morning After" received Canadian airplay, and for the album, Marshall worked with the likes of Peter Asher and Billy Mann.

In 2003, she released a greatest hits album entitled Intermission: The Singles Collection, which was followed by another greatest hits album, Collections, in 2006. In 2008, yet another greatest hits album, The Steel Box Collection, was released.

“We’re very pleased to have iconic Canadian female rocker,  Amanda Marshall, performing in this year’s festival lineup,” said Summer in the Park Committee Member, Derek Shogren.  “What a great way to celebrate the civic long weekend in August and Canada’s 150th birthday”.
