Spectacular Country singing sensation, CRYSTAL SHAWANDA exploded into the country music scene in a few short years and in 2009 she won the CCMA “Female Artist of the Year” and was nominated for two Junos for “Best New Artist” and “Country Recording of the Year” and in the same year toured with Reba McEntire. Presently Crystal sits on Nike’s N7 board, promoting a healthier lifestyle through sport and recreation and she isn’t showing any signs of slowing down. Crystal Shawanda from Wikwemikong, Ontario signed to RCA in 2007 and released her debut single, “You Can Let Go” in January 2008 which became the fastest climbing single on the Canadian Country Singles Chart since Carolyn Dawn Johnson’s “Georgia” in 2000, reaching the Top 10 in 5 weeks and later documented her rise to fame on CMT’s six part series, Crystal: Living the Dream in February 2008.

This former professional hockey player, drafted by the Vancouver Canucks on the 6th round in 2003, turned country music star is one of Canada’s most talked about new artists. This past year has garnered Chad a nomination as CCMA’s ‘Rising Star Award’ and was recently the recipient of three BCCMA Awards including ‘Male Vocalist of the Year’, ‘Socan Songwriter of the Year’ and ‘Rising Star of the Year’. CHAD BROWNLEE sings songs that are honest and real, with clearly painted metaphors. He is an artist that is all about the music with an intense passion for each song. Chad’s debut self-titled album, released in August 2010, featuring the hit single, “The Best That I Can Be (Superhero)” is in stores across Canada and on iTunes.

Be what nature intended you for and you will succeed.” These are the words that Emily Taylor Adams lives by. Even at such a young age, EMILY TAYLOR ADAMS has been labelled as one of the best Country singers ever to come out of this area. Emily began performing at various fairs, festivals in and around her hometown of Langley B.C. and was chosen as a showcase artist in 2008 at the CCMA’s at the young age of sixteen and in 2010 was honoured by being named ‘Female Vocalist Of The Year’ at the BCCMA’S. Since releasing her debut album in September 2010, which includes the hit “What Would It Feel Like”, Emily has been an unstoppable force on the Country music scene and as a regular at the Merritt Mountain Music Festival she has quickly become a fan favourite, which should come as no surprise with her powerhouse vocals and strong stage presence. For more information on EMILY TAYLOR ADAMS please visit www.emilytayloradams.com. Hayley McLean is the quintessential chick-with-guitar, she throws a stark and dramatic silhouette on stage, cross-referencing Bonnie Raitt rootsiness with Keith Urban virtuosity and everywhere she plays, right after they pick their jaws off the floor, people turn to each other and ask, “where’d she come from?” In the spring of 2010 a local radio station in Abbotsford, was holding a province-wide contest to find the best young talent out there. Up against more than one hundred contestants, she survived round after round until she ultimately won. There’s a big, broad arc of a career to come as one by one, people come to see, Hayley McLean kick country ass! There’s just no other way to put it.
