Calgary based Lauren Mayell — perhaps best known for the lyric-driven anthem “Rules Need Rebels,” her sixth single to country radio to date — recently collected the Alberta Country Music Award for “Female Artist of the Year” (2018). That precedes Mayell’s full-length debut, currently underway, recorded at The Warehouse in Vancouver and MCC Studio in Calgary, with acclaimed producer Jeff Johnson (George Canyon, Wes Mack). A onetime champion downhill ski racer and now a sought-after voice coach who has shared stages with everyone from Dean Brody and Meghan Patrick to Kane Brown — will cap the year with tour dates in support of the hotly anticipated new album.

Kimberley MacGregor is a powerful performer and roots musician who writes music for humans. She unapologetically exposes universal emotions that people tend to conceal. A reformed bank manager, Kimberley realized she was doing a successful job of living someone else’s life—and a poor job living her own. In 2013, she launched her original songs into the world and took centre stage. She has since released two full-length albums and was awarded “Female Artist of the Year” at both the 2015 and 2016 Edmonton Music Awards. She lovingly crafts and passionately performs songs that will move your heart, change your mind and stomp your feet. Weaving seamlessly between blues, folk and rock, her common threads are strength, vulnerability and badassery, always sizzling with soul.
