2017 Highlights
Cold Creek County
Cold Creek County come by their name naturally. Cold Creek, after all, runs through the rolling hills, apple orchards and villages in central Ontario near locations the band members call home.

Nestled in the rural in-betweens of Peterborough and Belleville, Ontario, (lead vocals/acoustic guitar) calls Brighton, population 4,800, home. Drummer is from nearby Hastings and its 1,200 population. Josh Lester (guitar/vocals) and (bass/vocals), the sons of bluegrass master Emory Lester, hail from the outskirts of Frankford, population 2,500. Lead guitarist, the relative city slicker in the group, is originally from Stratford, Ontario, population 30,000. Band members literally cross Cold Creek to get to each other’s homes.

Chief believes Cold Creek County, who’ve already opened for the likes of Tim Hicks, Kira Isabella, Travis Tritt and Jason Blain in their short time together, have what it takes to touch country fans, be they from small towns or big cities.

“Cold Creek County is a band that has all the pieces to the puzzle to succeed,” he says. “They’re great people with a great drive. They can play, sing and write music that is current and relevant to the country world and their dedication to putting on an amazing live show will surely transform into a large fan base that will follow and love this band.”

Cold Creek County deliver a powerful, dynamic sound that’s already captured a sizeable fan base. Being heavily influenced by Country and Rock, the band brings both worlds together in a way that’s sure to get your feet stomping. Cold Creek County spent 2014 honing their sound and performances winning at the 2014 Wire Awards and opening for country stars including Dallas Smith, Emerson Drive, Kira Isabella and Jason Blain.

The Washboard Union
In the few years they have been together, The Washboard Union have defied classification and become one of the most exciting and talked about new bands on the Canadian Country music scene. They are a sextet out of Vancouver led by principle members Aaron Grain, Chris Duncombe, and David Roberts. The three share a very similar unconscious soundtrack and unbridled love for the art of songwriting and storytelling. The three have been friends seemingly forever and the music they make has set them apart as one of the most unique talents in country music today. The band recorded their latest EP ‘In My Bones’ in the legendary RCA Studio A in Nashville, Tennessee. Originally built in 1964 as the home for Chet Atkins, RCA has been home to some of the most prolific recording artists in Nashville’s rich history including Dolly Parton, Tony Bennett, The Beach Boys, and more.
