Singer-songwriter Jessica Mitchell has been lauded as ‘country’s Adele’ and likened to Sheryl Crow, and much like them, her genre-bending vocals and tone are universally appealing. She is, at heart, a storyteller – an open book, inspired by the raw honesty and storytelling nature of the genre. Mitchell’s much anticipated debut album Heart of Glass, was released in 2018. Her latest single, a heartfelt impactful duet, “Somebody Gonna Get Hurt” featuring Tim Hicks, is out across all platforms as of June 7, 2019.
Tim Hicks – country music’s blue collar everyman, building from local acclaim to a nationally recognized name, has cemented his reputation as an elite chart topping act since making his country label debut in 2013. The platinum selling entertainer’s catalogue of highly praised releases including: “Throw Down”, “5:01”, “5:01+”, “Shake These Walls” and most recently, 2018’s “New Tattoo”, have earned the four-time JUNO Award nominee and CCMA Award winner, two PLATINUM selling singles, 6 GOLD singles, one GOLD album and twelve Top 10 radio hits with his long-time label Open Road Recordings, in addition to multiple sold-out headlining dates and tours across the country and a notable 2018 CCMA Award nomination for Apple Music Fans’ Choice.
The first recipient of the Nielsen Compass Award, an honour that recognizes an artist for the most total content plays including streams, single and album sales as well as total social media following, Hicks released his fourth full-length studio album “New Tattoo” in June (2018) and followed with the national “Get Loud” headlining tour last fall, where he partnered with PLUS1 and donated $1 from every ticket to the Unison Fund and their work providing counseling and emergency relief services to the Canadian music community. The album’s first single “LOUD”, was licensed by the NHL in North America, and was the #1 most added song at Canadian radio (all formats), its first week of release. The track currently has over 3 million streams – adding to his collective 60 million streams worldwide to date.
Hicks, continues to lead the way, expanding the songwriting, sound and style that helps define today’s country music. The platinum selling entertainer is a “true star on the Canadian country music scene” (GoBe Weekly), “proving he knows how to tailor his songs to his ever-expanding audience” and commemorating his wide-open sound as one of the defining influences on today’s Canadian County Music.
Hicks’ last single “What A Song Should Do” soared up the charts to earn Tim his first #1 single at Canadian country radio (Nielsen BDS | Mediabase). Tim celebrated his 4th JUNO nomination for 2019 Country Album of the Year for his album ‘New Tattoo’ and has received 4 nominations at this years Canadian Country Music Association (CCMA) Awards including Fans’ Choice, Entertainer of the Year, Male Artist of the Year and Album of the Year.
