THE JARDINES is an 8-piece contemporary country pop/roots act with a “go big or go home” attitude. The heart and soul of this smooth combo are Cherelle and Ajaye Jardine, Canada’s hottest mother/daughter songwriting team. With a foundation built on love, respect and belief in their music and each other, the band lives to create and play music. Street smarts, life experience and innocence blend deliciously to produce a sound easy to fall in love with. This signature sound comes through loud and clear in “Someone’s Stolen Tuesday”, “Torn”, “All Fall Down”, “I Want More” and “Crazy World”. The band’s cover of Gordon Lightfoot’s “Sundown” captured the attention of Gordon himself who loved the rendition.

Behind every great vocalist is a great band, and THE JARDINES are no exception. This particular pool of talented musicians comprises Marc Gladstone (Prism, Doug and the Slugs, Abandon Paris), Michael Flunkert (Shiloh Lindsay), Doug Liddle (Cloudsplitter, Swank), Ricky Francisco (Cherelle Jardine, Cam Dempsey, Ruckus) and Jay Wittur (Doug and the Slugs, Ken McCoy). Their second album “Someone’s Stolen Tuesday” was mixed by Juno Award winning recording engineer, Sheldon Zaharko from Zed Productions and was mastered by Sensei. Cherelle and Ajaye head to Nashville this Fall to start writing process their next singles.
