DALLAS SMITH, ten year veteran and front man of the successful Rock band Default, has stepped on over to the world of Country music. And what a successful step it has been! His debut album Jumped Right In immediately shot to the top of the Canadian Top 100 Neilsen Soundscan Chart, peaking at #19 and #4 on the Country Album Chart. An unprecedented five Top 10 singles, “Nothing but Summer”, “What Kinda Love”, “Jumped Right In”, “Somebody Somewhere” and “If It Gets You Where You Wanna Go”, have emerged from his first country music project. Such meteoric success is no coincidence. Rather, it is the result of genius collaboration with acclaimed songwriter/producer Zac Maloy, Grammy nominated songwriter Rodney Clawson, Chris Tompkins and Joey Moi, Nashville’s biggest and brightest.

To Dallas, country music has always been about the “special combination of voice and song.” He says, “I’ve always chosen and written songs with challenging vocals that I love to sing.” That credo has landed DALLAS SMITH in the middle of the 2013 CCMA Awards. He will perform live at the awards show where he will also anticipate the outcome of his three nominations for Album of the Year, Male Artist of the Year and Single of the Year. This is sure to be a landmark concert for this shooting star.

Shoot out the lights, and stone the roses, what we hear is THE MATINÉE, a band whose five members have known each other since high school. One part roots, one part rock, one part whiskey, and one part party – definitely shaken, not stirred – they have a groove a mile wide. Sparkling down-country guitar work, bass in spades, drums that take the listener into the outer reaches and attention to exquisite vocal harmony exist ubiquitously in the southern rock redux of “Sweetwater” and “Let Her Go”, the starlit “December Slumber”, the anthem “The Road” in addition to the instant classic “Young & Lazy”.

Driven to be as great as possible, THE MATINÉE earned a third place win in the 2011 Peak Performance Project. Eager to colour outside the lines, the band finds itself in the rare position of being welcome at both rural festivals and the urban hipster ground zero of your choice. After years of roadwork and growth, playing everywhere from prisons to air force bases and every watering hole in between, THE MATINÉE delivers an explosive live show renowned for its uproar of stomping, clapping, and blazing chops. It is abundantly clear these guys are taking the “Long Way Home”!
