    Interview with Amy Churm & Mark Lorenz

    in Music

    Born on a farm outside of Hamilton, Ontario, AMY CHURM was destined to be a country singer. At the age of 3, she gave her first performance and belted out a version of Rhinestone Cowboy. By age 7, Amy was performing on stage. Her first musical influences include Tanya Tucker, Loretta Lynn, Don Williams, and Glen Campbell. Amy has performed at local charity shows including the Canadian Country Music Co-op which spotlighted various local musicians on country station 820 CHAM. During her teens, she competed in several competitions including the Canadian Open Country Singing Contest, Ontario Open Country Singing Contest, and the Canadian National Exhibition Rising Star competition. Her new single is called Mess Around written by Amy along with Beau Fuller.

    With the taunting words “I dare you”, MARK LORENZ turned an adolescent dare into a Canadian Country music career. Born and raised on a farm just north of Airdrie, Alberta, Mark Lorenz lived and breathed the country life. Learning to ride a horse and drive a tractor was an everyday activity. “When I was 17, some friends and I were shopping for a birthday present for a buddy that had everything," Mark explains. "We were walking through a mall in Calgary, and came across a small recording studio. After some taunting, maybe even a couple of chicken calls, I ended up recording a song. And the rest is history.” After recording his first song, Mark was approached by the recording engineer and asked if he wanted to enter a local singing contest. Mark won that singing contest. He has gone on to record an EP and albums with popular songs like You Wreck Me, Like a Radio & Somewhere In Alberta.
