CALGARY — This year, revellers flocking to Shaw Millennium Park for the Pride Calgary Festival will enjoy a headlining performance from a true up-and-comer, who was named one of the Top 100 Unsigned Artists by Music Connection Magazine in 2010. Amy Hef hails from Saskatchewan, but splits her time between Calgary and Los Angeles, where she works tirelessly to write, record and perform her upbeat, bold pop. BeatRoute chatted with Hef to learn more about what to expect when she takes Pride by storm.

BeatRoute: How did you become involved in Pride Calgary 2014?

Amy Hef: I’ve been in and out of Calgary for the past five years (splitting my time in LA) and have had great support from the community here and have played events such as the ARGRA Rodeo in the past. This year I got a call from YYC Bad Boys and Les Girls, who are putting on the stage, and had no hesitation to saying yes.

BR: What does it mean to you to be headlining at Pride Calgary?

AH: It is a beautiful thing when such diverse groups of people come and stand together against discrimination and embrace each other’s differences without shame. To be able to be a part of it this year is a huge honour. And if you’ve never been to Pride, it’s a pretty great friggin’ time!

BR: What can Pride attendees expect from your live show?

AH: I’ll be doing a lot of the songs from my latest album, AH!, which is now out on iTunes. Most of my songs are upbeat and will be doing all I can to get the crowd moving. I also have a strict policy of trying not to suck!

Check out Amy Hef performing at Shaw Millennium Park during the Pride Calgary Festival on August 31st.
