Roots country recording artist JJ Voss will be kicking off his province wide Comin' To Town Tour in Shaunavon on Nov. 29.
Thanks to the Organization of Saskatchewan Arts Councils (OSAC) award-winning Regina based roots country singer/songwriter, JJ Voss will be making his way across all corners of this beautiful province from Nov. 2013 to April 2014.
JJ Voss delivers an unmistakable mainstream brand of outlaw country music with an infusion of Canadiana flavour, derived from his rural roots in Western Canada and his passion for honest, blue collar storytelling. His dedication as a relentless "live show" road warrior has paid off with prestigious appearances at the Canada Summer Games, World Curling Championships, Juno-Fest, the Calgary Stampede, The Millenium Music Festival & Conference, Dauphin Countryfest (the longest running country music festival in Canada) and the prestigious Big Valley Jamboree and Craven Country Jamborees'.
His current release entitled "Show 'em Who's Voss" was voted Roots Album of the Year by the Saskatchewan Country Music Association. The recording was produced in Nashville by former Steve Earle band member and Grammy-nominated producer Harry Stinson (Peter Frampton, Elton John, Steve Earle, Lyle Lovett, Martina McBride, Marty Stuart), with four radio singles released to date "It's A Pride Thing", "Bare Bones" " Playing for Keeps" (which peaked at #51 on the Canadian charts) and the current single " Breakin' Things" now at #64 and climbing.
Fresh off two performances as a part of the 101st Grey Cup Celebration in Regina, an appearance at SaskMusic's Breakout West showcase performance at the Americana Music Festival and Conference in Nashville, two Junofest showcase spots during the 2013 Juno Awards week-end, a solid tour schedule and picking up a SCMA award for “Roots Album of the Year”, 2013 is proving to be a banner year for JJ.
Voss will be on stage at Shaunavon's Plaza Theatre at 7:30 p.m. this Friday. His only other stop in the Southwest during this 13-date tour will be in Leader on Feb. 28.
