Hey Friends! Thank you for the warm welcome and for having me! Much appreciated! “Bleed Country” was produced by Dan Swinimer in Vancouver, BC. I wrote this song over a Zoom call during the pandemic, and there’s nothing like this on the radio right now in Canadian country music, and I’m pumped to release it! I think it's my best work yet! It was a very special and meaningful songwriting experience working with the incredibly talented Wes Mack and Dan Swinimer on this song. I can’t wait for everyone to hear it! They were so great to work with.

“Bleed Country” brings people together regardless of who they are or where they're from. Our love for the community is our way of Bleeding County! It’s in our blood and our bones; WE all Bleed Country! As far as fitting into the current landscape of Canadian country music, I sincerely am not concerned or thinking about that. I'm not looking to copy or sound like anyone but me. Individuality is one of the most important things about being an artist. Someone once told me imperfection is individual.
