ROD BLACK of Jet Black Stare was raised on all the greats of Southern Rock & Country, from the original country outlaws Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, and Johnny Cash, to the Southern Rock pioneers Lynyrd Skynyrd. With the stage in his blood, Rod has toured with Shinedown, Hinder, Staind, Three Doors Down, Puddle of Mudd, Theory of a Deadman, Seether, Saliva and Saving Abel to name a few. He is currently hitting the road to promote his first radio single “Keepin On”.

Seizing Jet Black Stare’s opportunity to sign with Island/Def Jam (2007), Black teamed with Vancouver producer Gordini & songwriter/producer Jeff Johnson (Wes Mack, Small town Pistols) to create an album described as an “infectious medley of soul, passion, and most of all, honesty.” Rod is currently working alongside Jeff Johnson, producer/songwriter Dan Swinimer (Madeline Merlo) and engineer Scott “Scotty Chops” Cooke (Dallas Smith, Florida Georgia Line and Jason Blaine).

At the end of the day, ROD BLACK is all about making people feel connected and staying true to the song. As he breaks free with a solo career, RB looks to challenge himself as a songwriter while delving even deeper into his Southern Rock & Country roots.

ME & MAE is Shawn Meehan and Jacky Mae, who, with a little serendipity and an abundance of talent have found themselves BC’s newest Country stars. The band has forged a reputation as the one to watch on the Canadian Country Music scene. The band’s debut album Off the Rails, released in May, features the singles “Love Me, Leave Me Lonely” co-written by Carly Rae Jepsen, the foot-stomping party anthem “Tailgate Party” and the sassy, sexy romp “What Cha Wearin’” as well as original covers of the Johnny Cash classic “Ring of Fire” and Dolly Parton’s peppy “9 to 5”. The album is a testament to Me and Mae’s ability to write songs featuring memorable vocal and melodic hooks incorporating a variety of styles to keep the material cutting edge and current, but still very original.

With a very focused and independent spirit ME & MAE is a on the road spreading their high-energy sound to fans throughout the heartland of country music. With momentum, talent and timing on their side, Me and Mae is poised to win over legions of fans looking for good, homegrown country music with a rock and roll sensibility and an ability to make folks want to dance, sing and perhaps even indulge in some enthusiastic texting.

The creative partnership that anchors ME & MAE has been prolific and has paid wonderful musical dividends including the nomination for Top Country Best New Artist (2014).
