~ DARCY JOHN ~
We were fortunate enough to finally meet and learn more about our September 'EMERGING INDIE ARTIST' a few weeks ago at The Moonshine Cafe. Darcy John is a singer/songwriter/producer/recording artist from St. Marys, Ontario who currently resides in Nashville, Tennessee. Raised in a musical family he seemed destined to be a natural performer.
Darcy had his first regular house gig at age 14 and has been touring as a lead guitar player ever since his first gigs. He's played guitar for Ray Scott, Marlee Scott, Tommy Cash, and several other artists. He's played hundreds of shows all over Nashville including the world-famous Tootsie's World Famous Orchid Lounge on Broadway, sharing the stage with countless stars.
Darcy has written and produced several radio cuts along with releasing his own debut EP in 2018. He was recently nominated for the 'Male Artist Of The Year' award in 2021 by the Country Music Association of Ontario, for his singles released. He was in shock that he was nominated, but truly humbled and honored to be a part of the CMAO. He can’t thank the people who have supported him and his career enough. Without the supporters especially his hometown and the support of his family he says he wouldn't be where he is today as an artist.
To date Darcy has released seven singles to radio in Canada most recently 'Dance The Night Away' in April 2021. Darcy also has had radio success in the States with his single 'Thomas Road'.
Currently, Darcy continues to write songs, produce, play guitar sessions, sideman work, and tour playing live shows promoting his own music. Darcy’s combination of hard work and raw talent has blessed him with a diverse music career. He enjoys being able to do what he loves for a living and is thrilled to have his work well received. He is truly humbled and is constantly striving to reach for the stars and be the best that he can be as a musician and an entertainer. Back in 2009, Darcy’s first trip to Nashville lasted less than half a year when he played guitar for a sideband. He returned five or six years later and supported several acts, including Johnny Cash’s brother, Tommy, before deciding late in 2017 to finally chase his own dream as a singer-songwriter and artist.
During the past year or so during the pandemic, he’s taken the time to dabble in production and has had more windows of opportunity to write and work in the studio, which was definitely a benefit of the COVID-19 slowdown. But Covid also made for some serious setbacks as it forced him to cancel shows and a Canadian radio blitz in 2020. John was still able to play some live gigs in Nashville, but it’s wasn't the same given the public-health and covid 19 protocol restrictions. A few weeks ago he finally made it home to Stratford, Ontario to see his family as he had been unable to be with them for more than a year.
We wish Darcy the best on his first Country Music Association of Ontario nomination at the awards to be held in Ancaster on September 5th. Even though it doesn't look like he'll be able to physically attend the awards this year, he wants to thank everyone who voted for him from the bottom of his heart. He can't wait to get back to what he loves in full capacity very soon and is looking forward to reconnecting with his fans, which for him, can't happen soon enough!
~ KELLY PRESCOTT ~
Our Emerging Indie Artist for the month of August is Kelly Prescott!
Kelly comes by her music in the most honest way possible, as a third-generation singer/songwriter on both sides of her family. She grew up between a tour bus & a world-class recording studio, her childhood steeped in traditional country music. Kelly and her family recently made their Grand Ole Opry debut as guests of Terri Clark. That must have been an amazing experience for everyone!
We have seen Kelly perform a few times, and she has an amazing connection with her audience regardless the size of the crowd. We were so impressed by how comfortable and at ease, she was on stage. She’s witty, funny, and super talented. We thoroughly enjoyed her performances and look forward to seeing her perform at the Country Music Association of Ontario Awards this coming Labour Day Weekend in Hamilton, Ontario!
The past few months have been a whirlwind for singer-songwriter Kelly since the release of her acclaimed EP “Love Wins” on February 21st via SteelHead Music. This is her first new album since her 2016 EP “Hillbilly Jewels”, “Love Wins” sees Prescott return to her roots with the sounds and styles she loves, delivering a collection of songs that are contemplative and masterfully highlight her soulful vocals. The self-penned six-song collection draws straight from her own heart, and just earned Prescott her first-ever Canadian Country Music Association Award nomination for “Roots Album of the Year”.
She has toured all over North America with such acts as Alan Doyle, Kyle Cook (Matchbox 20), Terri Clark, Dallas Smith, Jim Cuddy (Blue Rodeo) Colin James, Dean Brody, her former band The Claytones, and performed as Emmylou Harris in the theatrical production of Grievous Angel: The Legend of Gram Parsons.
This past year Kelly was chosen as one of the SiriusXM Canada 'Top of the Country' Contest Artists and in partnership with the Canadian Country Music Association. Not only was she chosen but she is now a Top Three Finalist for the contest and we are so excited for her! She is also nominated for 'Album of the Year' & 'Roots Artist of the Year' at the Country Music Association of Ontario Awards! We wish her good luck!
You can catch Kelly at the Burl's Creek Event Grounds for the Endless Summer Concert Series in September as well. She is one talented lady who is well on her way to becoming one of the top female country artists this country has ever seen!
~ EMMA PETERSON ~
Our “Emerging Indie Artist” for the month of July is Emma Peterson Music!
She is one of Manitoba’s most promising young country stars! Always a fan of singing and performing for family for as long as she can remember. We have her sister to thank for playing a certain CD on their way to Dauphin one summer, which made Emma truly realize what path her dreams were. “She wanted to listen to some Taylor Swift, and she said she thought l would love it,” the musician recalled, adding the pair had spent the money their parents had given them for the day, on the CD. We think that was money well spent! “Right then I knew I wanted to play her songs. So, not long after, we went to Walmart and bought a $50 guitar and my parents thought I was crazy.” With no guitar teacher in town, Emma searched for YouTube tutorials on how to play some basic chords, and the rest is history. “I would watch those videos over and over and music really became the love of my life,” she said. “I still can’t imagine doing anything else.”
Emma is known not only for her captivating performances but for her powerful voice and all too relatable lyricism. It’s that gift for telling familiar, relatable stories that continues to set the singer/songwriter apart, as well as setting the scene for her most recent single, ‘One More Night’ — is being released today, to all streaming platforms. We are super excited for her!“The idea of ~ One More Night ~ came from a relationship with someone who walked away,” she explained. “It’s a song of how you really like this person and how you wish you could spend one more night with them.”
We can certainly relate to that. Growing up in Winnipegosis, MB (which at last count boasts a population of about 617), Emma knows first-hand what it’s like to grow up country proud. And while she may have since moved on to bigger digs, it’s those fond hometown memories that continue to fuel the fire, and initially lit the spark on her country music career — no matter how cheesy she thinks her origin story may sound. Well, we’re good with that, we love cheesy!
In 2016, Emma’s debut took home the top spot in CMT’s Chevy Tailgate Contest, resulting in one of her original songs being featured on the Chevy Top 20, while she made a name for herself as one of the Top 4 Finalists, in the country. She also got the chance to meet American country heavyweights - Lady A backstage, which was nothing less than a full-circle moment.
Over the past few years, Emma has continued to perform at numerous venues across the province and beyond, including an appearance at Dauphin's Countryfest, sharing a stage with some of the country’s biggest breakout stars, Andrew Hyatt and Chris Buck Band. That must have been an exciting experience for her!
In 2020, she headed to the Manitoba Country Music Association Awards in Winnipeg with a slew of nominations including - Fans’ Choice, Female Artist, and Music Video of the Year, ultimately taking home a win in the Emerging Artist category. She released “Hurt Like Hell” and entered it in the Toyota Searchlight contest.
“Everything has really solidified for me, in a way. Every time I hit the stage, I take a deep breath and can’t help but enjoy every minute,” she said. “I'm so lucky to be where I am, and I can’t wait to see what the future holds!” So humble, appreciative, and talented, on our books, that makes her definitely Country! We can’t wait to see her as well! We feel she’s got a long future in the Country music scene, and we look forward to seeing her live in concert one of these days.
Over the past few years, she’s been working on and just completed her Bachelor of Nursing. We would like to thank her for lending a hand during the pandemic. Congrats!Make sure you check out her new release - 'One More Night' and all of her other releases!
~ MIKE ROBINS ~
Our “Emerging Indie Artist” for the month of June, is Mike Robins! We’re sure you’ll recognize his soulful voice and amazing guitar picking anywhere. We wouldn’t “blame” you, he’s so talented! Mike burst onto the Canadian Country music scene, as half of the chart topping group, Autumn Hill in 2013. The duo achieved huge radio success with multiple top 10 and top 20 singles such as “Blame”, “Anything At All”, “Mixtape” and “Can’t Keep Waiting. Along with their success at radio, the band’s music video’s topped the CMT charts, with “Blame” hitting #1. We loved Mike and Autumn Hill, right out of the gate!
Mike’s musical influences are quite diverse, including several eras and crossing genres! Everything from growing up in a family that adored classic rock music, to enjoying 60’s, 70’s and rock bands of the 90’s and even mixing in soul music! Mike shared that The Beatles, were a huge influence on him and that the country classics, like Johnny Cash and Merle Haggard, were favourites as well.
Mike has said that the country lyrics and the great guitarists, are what drew Mike to the instrument and Country genre. Extraordinary guitar pickers, like Hendrix & Jimmy Page, Vince Gill and of course, later on Keith Urban, were who he idolized and wanted to emulate. A few additional favourites to add to that list, are Brad Paisley and Dierks Bentley.
Mike’s music has garnered millions of streams across all platforms, such as Spotify and Apple Music. After Autumn Hill, Mike continued to work to cement his place in the Canadian country music landscape taking him in another genre of music, with his other critically acclaimed project, East Adelaide. The raw and honest single “You Don’t Get To Love Me” gained over 675 thousand views on Youtube alone.
He has been nominated for 4 Canadian Country Music Awards, 2 Juno Awards and 4 Country Music Association of Ontario Awards and has been the winner of the CMAO’s Rising Star and Best Group/Duo Awards. Along with these awards and nominations, Mike has been invited to perform many times on these award shows as well, including the Canadian Country Music Association National Television Broadcast. One of those performances featured his band’s duet with the incredible Canadian legend Jann Arden. He has so many accolades to be proud of and to have been a part of.
Mike has headlined tours throughout Canada and has shared the stage with many of Country music’s finest, such as Keith Urban, Dierks Bentley, Florida Georgia Line, Dean Brody, Dallas Smith and Tim McGraw to name a few. That must have been incredible!
Robins has captivated crowds with his high energy and unforgettable live performances at all major Canadian country music festivals such as Boots & Hearts Music Festival, Havelock Country Jamboree, Country Thunder, Cavendish Beach Music Festival, The Calgary Stampede and Big Valley Jamboree. There are a few on that list of Festivals, that the Two Christines’s, have on their mutual Festival bucket list!!
With life coming to sudden stand still last year, this allowed him to focus on his solo project, that has been a dream of his, forever! He spent the time writing loads of music and recording it as well. He also spent some quality time in the kitchen, learning some new dishes. It was quite the learning experience, releasing music by himself and all the other new tasks that come with a solo career. In October of 2020, he released - “Lightning Don’t Strike Twice”. This officially started his new chapter, as a solo artist, and the new music was well received!
This accomplished singer/songwriter/guitarist was born and raised in Toronto, Ontario. Often being compared to artists like John Mayer and Keith Urban, Mike’s new music showcases his soulful smooth vocals, raw emotion, and electrifying guitar work, and his songs are deeply rooted in country music’s long tradition of storytelling.
When we talked to Mike, he said - “He would just love to thank the fans for supporting my music in Autumn Hill and East Adelaide and of course now, with the new solo chapter. I can’t wait to share all this new music with you guys!” Well we look forward to seeing it & hearing it, sometime soon! We are super excited to share that he just released “One Beer At A Time”. Make sure you check it out, buy it and stream it!
~ BUCK TWENTY ~
Our Emerging Indie Artists for the month of May is Buck Twenty!
We first saw Buck Twenty at Hagersville Rocks and they won us over by the end of the first chorus! They had loads of energy on the stage, amazing harmonies, catchy hooks, it was quite a memorable show, for sure. They bring it every time they perform!
The singer/songwriter duo Mike Ure and Aidan Johnson-Bujold emerged from the small towns of Harrow and LaSalle, Ontario, in a very big way. They currently are located out towards Windsor.

Their song “All I Can Do” has over 300,000+ Spotify streams and continues to climb. It also made it to the Top 40 on Billboard. We love that song !!! The duo looks forward to introducing more new music 2021. This month on May 14th, they launched “Cut Me Off”, to their loyal and growing fanbase, to radio, and engaging live, with audiences across Canada. We can’t wait to hear their new release live and to see them again in concert. We know it will be a great time!

Congratulations and We wish them Good luck! They are so worthy of being nominated. We’re sure this is the beginning of the next phase, for this Ontario duo, coming into their own and they’ll be around for many years to come!
~ SACHA ~
Our “Emerging Indie Artist” for the month of April, is Sacha!
She came on our radar with her song “Standards”. It had us doing google searches, and her voice peeked our interest enough, to figure out who she was. One things for sure, was that her message came through crystal clear~ she’s not willing to settle with just anyone, he needs to make the cut, and there’s nothing wrong with that!
2020 was an amazing breakout year for Sacha. Her independent EP, “The Best Thing”, Sacha presented a set of songs that will fan the flames of hope in the heart of anyone who hears them.
Since the release in July 2020, this singer/songwriter, has done exceptionally well, north and south of the border, with her signature blend of traditional and pop-country. We’re so proud that she’s Canadian, and everything that’s she accomplished this far! She’s even from our own province of Ontario.,
All of Sacha’s hard work is starting to pay off, as she has also been featured as iHeart Radio’s ‘Future Star’, racked up adds on every Pure Country Radio Station in Canada, and on the highly influential, US-based Radio Disney with her latest single, ‘Standards’. Additionally, ‘Standards’ charted both the Top 50 Canadian Country Billboard and Top 40 Mediabase Canadian Country charts and boasts over 400,000 Spotify plays and just hit - Half a Million streams on Amazon Music!! We can see why, because we love “Standards”!
Sacha recorded with Canadian Country Music Association Producer of the Year Nominee, Dan Swiminer and it featured songs penned by and in collaborations including Tenille Townes, Madeline Merlo, Emma-Lee, and Karen Kosowski. “The Best Thing” is proving to be a well-deserved and hard-earned breakthrough for Sacha. Following the premiere of the video for lead single ‘Cheers’ on ET Canada domestically, and worldwide on CMT, the EP has amassed over 900,000 streams across all platforms, which led Sacha being named as one of CMT’s ‘Next Women of Country’ for 2021. She has a lot to be proud of!
She has been featured in major television, print and online music press outlets such as Music Row Magazine, American Songwriter, Rolling Stone Country, Billboard, and The Boot. She was also featured as Country Music Association of Ontario Artist of the Month for February! Such an honour, well earned! She just released her new video for ‘Standards’ so make sure you check it out. Sacha has performed on stages of all different size venues and connects with her audience, regardless of size. Everything from backyard parties, festivals like Sound of Music Festival, to Boots & Hearts. We feel you’ll be a life long fan after seeing her perform!
Both ‘Cheers’ and ‘Standards’ are songs that speak to our current times, imparting the message, that no matter what challenges life tosses your way, embracing the everyday joys of living, is the surest way to overcome them. That message is deeply rooted in Sacha’s music, her unfailingly positive outlook, has come from her own experiences, growing up in the tiny village of Warkworth, Ontario.
Sacha comes from a family of musicians who ensured that music was a part of everyday life during home rehearsals, backyard bonfire parties, and gigs at the local Legion Hall, Sacha said: “Music contributed to my life in so many ways, it’s no wonder I chose it as a career.” As idyllic as that sounds, there have been hard times to. She shared with us, that she had to leave school and start working full-time because her sister and herself had to fend for themselves, for a while. She could have had a less positive outlook based on some of her circumstances, which is understandable but she chose to be the person who says that even if you have it rough, it won’t always be that way. Things can turn out really good for you. That’s such a great message to share with the world.
Sacha’s firm belief that following your heart – even when others don’t believe it will lead anywhere good – might just be the ticket to living your dreams! We couldn’t agree more! We’d like to Congratulate Sacha, for being nominated for ‘Rising Star Of The Year’ Award at CMAO in Hamilton, this year next month! Good Luck! Check out her music on all social media platforms, you won’t regret it!
JESS AND TAY
Our FEATURED “EMERGING INDIE ARTISTS” for the month of March, are Jess & Tay (Jess and Tay Music)! We fell in love with them, the first time we seen Jess & Tay at Stories, Songs & Six Strings, hosted by In The Country with Dave Woods, at The Moonshine Cafe in Oakville. Together, these talented, Canadian singer/songwriting duo, Jessie Bower and Taylor Adams, are the voices behind the sweet, yet rich harmonies that Jess and Tay are known for. They have voices like angels!
Although the Ontario duo do not live in the same town, Jessie (Hamilton), and Taylor (Pickering), their shared love and passion for country music, brought them together, some 6 years ago, while they were attending Humber College. Often times they are even mistaken for sisters and we’re not surprised by that. You can feel their connection, through the music they create together !
These talented performers are no strangers to hard work and dedication, and have the smarts to back them up, both having graduated with Honours from Humber College’s distinguished vocal music program this past year.
Their launch into the Canadian country music scene, was their big stage debut, as Finalists in the Boots & Hearts Music Festival - Emerging Artist Showcase in 2016. They placed 2nd in the The Next Country Music Star and played the main stage, at Havelock Country Jamboree in 2018. They were honoured by the Country Music Association of Ontario in December 2020, by being named ‘Artists of the Month’!

Jess & Tay have been performing across Ontario, at events and stages, of all sizes, everything from the Havelock Jamboree, The Horseshoe Tavern, SuperCrawl, and many CCMA showcases and rocked them all ! Their sound is similar to that of their musical influencers, groups like Lady A, The Chicks, and Dan + Shay. Jess & Tay feel that these artists, have truly paved the way for them, to expand themselves in the industry. “Working together is the most fun part about being in a duo, we always have two separate brains to pick and to help make our brand grow”.
They have gained considerable traction with the release of their first 3 singles - “Into Tomorrow”, “That’s When I Drink”, and “Two Alone” - available on all streaming platforms! They have 2 new releases on the horizon, that are bound to “give you all the feels”, so get the tissues ready and delete your ex’s number for sure ! Jess & Tay just released on February 26th, - “It Wasn’t You” and on March 19th - “Wish You Were Mine”, will be released, to all streaming platforms.
They shared with us what they have been up to. “Throughout this pandemic we have been given the time to truly think about ourselves as artists and have discovered our voice. Our two upcoming singles “It Wasn’t You” and “Wish You Were Mine,” amplify who we are, not only as artists but who we are as individuals. We have a clear path on where we want to go with our music and are so excited to continue on this journey. With our new music, we want to help listeners understand the true messages behind the songs, and give them an inside perspective of who we are. We want to continue to grow with you all in the coming years, and can’t wait to see what this career brings us.”
Well we are so excited for Jess & Tay and we can’t wait to see what happens in 2021 & future for them. We are so proud of them both and feel their talent and dedication, will take them far in this industry ! Good luck ! Be sure you check out all their music, wherever you stream and buy music!

She sang her first song at the age of 4, and joined a music theatre group at the age of 7 and was in countless musicals for many years.
