Four Chords & The Truth

Andrea England's "Four Chords & The Truth" has been one of my favourite performance experiences since I moved to Toronto. It was such an honour to be invited to play as an emerging songwriter on the same stage with these artists. If you're ever in Toronto and are looking for a great show to take in, do yourself a favour and get tickets to this songwriter round at The Dakota Tavern!

Radio Tour Oct/2016

So to say that my very first radio tour was a blast would be an understatement. I got to see old friends, make new friends, and do what I love in four different states. I got to admire the beauty of Ocean Way Studios, drink deliciously perfect lattes at Edgehill, and jam in a gorgeous backyard full of love, lights, cute pets, and wonderful company (Thanks Pat!). We drove by Fame studio, visited Talladega Superspeedway, and drank margaritas. We got chased by clowns (in a haunted house, thank goodness), ate way too many burritos, and surprisingly found ourselves within spitting distance of Alan Jackson (not that we ever would). We experienced the brilliance of the Time Jumpers, danced along to the Don Kelley Band at Roberts Western World, and got a little broadwaysted. We strolled along Music Row, took selfies with the Ryman, watched Chris Carmack film a scene, and tried biscuits & gravy for the first time. We visited cute antique shops, stood on the dance floor at Surf Ballroom, and got to drive through towns we never thought we’d see. We covered a lot of miles, a lot of farmland, and a lot of roadkill (ew). I got to share my music and my story with wonderful folks at 20 different radio stations, and all the while, I got to do it with my best friend. Thank you GrassRoots Promotion, thank you Holland Group, thank you country radio, thank you Chad, and thank you mom & dad for making these last few weeks happen. I’m walking away with a full heart, high hopes for the future, and lots of beautiful memories. I'm no video editor like my brother, but I wanted to put together a little something to give you a sneak peak behind the scenes. You can find the video on my Facebook Page by clicking HERE :) I hope you enjoy!! 

RADIO TOUR

And we sang all the way down to......NASHVILLE!! I'm so excited to announce that I'm heading out on my very first RADIO TOUR!! In just a few weeks, I'll be on my way to the US to promote my debut single "Tupelo"!!

Sending lots of hugs and kisses to everyone at The Holland Group and GrassRoots Promotion for putting this tour together, and of course my family for being the best support system ever! <3 Now bring on the road trips, coffee, dry shampoo, and early morning jams! :)

CCMW 2016

What a weekend!!!!!! I attended my very first CCMAs last weekend and it was more amazing than I could have imagined. The people, the talent, the atmosphere.. just as a whole, was incredible!

On Thursday, I got the wonderful opportunity to play Sirroma Entertainment's "Diamonds in the Rough" Showcase. Huge thanks to Angie, Sirroma, & the sponsors for hosting this event and thanks to all the folks who came out early and start their day with us! To make things even better, Linda Heldman @ Canadian Beats covered our set! Check out the link below to see our live performance of "Tupelo" :)

#WeAreHip

On the night of August 20th/2016,  97.5 KROCK celebrated Gord & the brilliant music of Canada's best - The Tragically Hip. Jason LaCour (JLaC) invited a handful of local artists to perform Hip covers two hours before the last concert was aired. We may have been rockin' some country music on the Eastbound stage that night, but our hearts were with Gord & the rest of Canada as the last Hip concert was broadcasted. I am so honoured and humbled to have been invited to take part in this tribute. Check out my take on "Stay" below :)  #WeAreHip

CCMA WEEK 2016

Holy smokes you guys! I am honoured to have been selected to perform at this year's "Diamonds in the Rough" Showcase during CCMA Week in London, Ontario!! Thank you Sirroma Entertainment, and all of the sponsors for making this happen and giving emerging artists a stage to shine during Canada's biggest week in Country Music! 

NEW SINGLE: Postcard From Tennessee

My new single "Postcard From Tennessee" is now available for purchase!!! AND as of today, you can request it to your local radio stations :)! This song is a special one for me, not just because it's an original, but because of what inspired it. No matter what your goals or dreams are in life, you will always have people who love you, root for you, and support you in all of your endeavours. You will also have people who try to put you down. We are all dreamers, and we all need to start somewhere. It's okay to feel overwhelmed, it's okay to cry when someone hurts you, and you're not always going to be perfect. Instead of letting that rejection defeat you, embrace it and use it as motivation. That's the advice that was given to me when I was feeling down, and that's what this song is about. I wanted to write something that encourages people to be themselves, and to be a little more kind to one another because we all deserve happiness and success. 

I'm also thrilled to have my uncle, Gordon Cormier credited on this record. We wrote this song together and I couldn't have asked for a better partner on this one :) 

Thank you Sam, Billy, Trent, and my family for believing in this song and making sure it found a home on my debut album. 

PS - You can now start requesting "Tupelo" to your local American radio stations!!! :)

Live & Unplugged on KROCK

I had so much fun singing this song on "Under The Influence" with Chad Murphy :) It's an original of mine that I'm super proud of. If you know me, you know that I like to be silly and this song helps me showcase that while sending a positive message at the same time. You don't have to be a bombshell to be beautiful! Hope you enjoy this live, unplugged version of "What Bunnies Can Do" :) !!

Debut single "Tupelo" is released!

So my debut single "Tupelo" was released December 4th!!!!!! I'm so excited and proud of this song. For my record, I not only got to record some of my own songs, but I was given the wonderful opportunity to cut some songs by brilliant writers. This was the very first tune that my manager sent to me and I immediately fell in love with it. So I guess you could say that Dec. 4th was an UNBELIEVABLE DAY!!!! Because of the amount of support and love and the power of social media, my single skyrocketed on the National country iTunes chart! It peaked at #6, sandwiched between Chris Stapleton & Luke Bryan (ARE YOU KIDDING?!!!) Thank you to all of those who shared, downloaded, and supported me over the last few days. I am overwhelmed with gratitude. And thank you to Gordie Sampson, Hillary Lindsey, & Steve McEwan for your talent and your music. 

"Tupelo" is available to download now on iTunes, Spotify, & other digital downloading sites.
