The release of her new album ‘3’ sends Amber Lawrence’s multiple award-winning country music career soaring as high as the giant jumbo jets that fly over her home in Sydney’s inner-city suburb of Mascot, not far from the international airport.

Yes, Amber’s an inner city girl. She’s lived in the hustle, the noise and the hubbub all her life but it has never diluted her passion for country music and its endless themes of heartbreak, story-telling, love, joy, fun and core family values like loyalty. Now ‘3’, (simply named because it’s her third album) adds another dimension to a career that has been on a sharply vertical lift-off since Amber took up singing and songwriting half a dozen years ago and rocked the industry with her burgeoning talents. Her achievements so far include five Golden Guitar nominations, six Number One songs, the Horizon award, TV performances on major shows like Mornings with Kerri-Anne and Spicks and Specks, plus tours and stage appearances with artists including Adam Harvey, Beccy Cole, Melinda Schneider and Lee Kernaghan.

‘3’, with its mixture of upbeat optimism, personal happiness and resilience along with some references to deeper issues including courage in the face of hardship, is another step upward on a career path that has seen Amber delight audiences all over the country - from sold-out Tamworth concerts to the Gympie Music Muster - and vastly expand her fan base.

'Everybody’s A Mess' has already generated such enthusiasm among Amber’s fans that it will be the first song released from the album as a single. “My last album was on a positive note as well but it was more based on moving on after the death of my father,” she says. “This album says I know what life is all about at this point in my life and I’m making the most of it, good or bad. I have my glass-half-empty days like everyone else but most if the time it's half-full”.

Adding to her already glittering career lustre is Amber’s insightful skill, writing one and co-writing the other 12 songs on the album with some of the best known lyricists in country music, including award winner Colin Buchanan, Mike Carr, who wrote song of the year 'Real People' for Melinda Schneider, Sam Hawksley, Paul Greene, Suzy Connolly and Golden Guitar-winning producer Rod McCormack, whose professionally deft touch in the studio is behind the unique sound.

Amber’s debut album The Mile and its follow-up When It All Comes Down - which earned three Golden Guitar nominations - were commercial and critical successes. ‘3’ continues Amber’s evolvement into one of the most successful country music artists in the country, loved by fans and respected by industry super stars such as Lee Kernaghan and Adam Harvey, who brings his honeyed voice to track six, 'The Peace I Keep'.

Also joining Amber for a duet on the album is ex-Australian Idol finalist and Home and Away star Axle Whitehead. Axle’s smoky vocals are a perfect fit for Amber’s on the sexy track nine, 'My Attraction'. “Axle’s a great singer, who is a big fan of country music – so it was really fun to work with someone outside the normal realms of Australian country music," says Amber.

Amber came up with the ideas for her songs on ‘3’ but called in songwriting partners to give the finished product a distinctive twist in comparison to the first two albums. “I wrote almost all the songs by myself on the first two and didn’t want ‘3’ to sound the same,’’ she says. “But I still wanted the songs to be my songs, to tell my story. The songwriting sessions were successful because we had clear ideas in our minds as to where we were headed. It’s my truth, it’s my take on the world as I see it right now. Life throws us curve balls and the only thing that's constant is change which always makes for great song subject matter. ‘3’ represents where I'm at personally and creatively at the moment. I’m very proud of this album.”
