One More Girl Opening for Alan Jackson on September 18th at Mosaic Place

Just announced, One More Girl will be joining country music superstar Alan Jackson on stage in Moose Jaw on September 18th.

Country music’s next ‘overnight’ sensation may well be two decades in the making.   Sisters Carly McKillip (24), and Britt McKillip (22),  known as the hit-making, award winning duo One More Girl grew up in a musical family, and took to the stage as toddlers.    Thanks to a childhood filled with music, and a multitude of acting roles in ongoing television and film projects these gorgeous young women are seasoned entertainers well beyond their years.  “We’re fully committed to our craft.  We’ll be writing music and performing till the day we die.  It’s ingrained in our genes,” says the disarmingly assertive older sister Carly.   

Since winning the coveted CCMA Rising Star Award the girls have been signed by two major labels: EMI and Interscope – both times, staffing changes at the labels sabotaged their chances at an international breakthrough. “We’ve got a great team and amazing fan support in Canada so thankfully, we have a strong career up here,” says the stunning Britt McKillip, who beyond her music is known for voicing a main character in “My Little Pony” and for playing the lead role in the critically acclaimed Showtime series “Dead Like Me.” 

In 2013 One More Girl announced their long time agent Jim Cressman, of Invictus Entertainment Group, would assume the role as manager, and shortly thereafter One More Girl was signed to Canada’s top indie country label, Open Road Recordings.  A few months later they scored leading roles in the CMT hit holiday film “Coming Home For Christmas,” which featured – along with their formidable acting chops – music composed and performed by the girls.

Sharing the stage with Jason Aldean, Lady Antebellum, and many more continues to inspire the girls to bring their voices, their performances and their music to the international stage. The current single “Love Like Mine”, written by Emily Shackleton, may just help them do that.  Already a top 40 hit in Canada and a top 20 CMT video within weeks of its’ release, the female empowerment anthem is resonating with young country audiences.  Poised for a breakout in 2014 One More Girl has recently been signed by Kevin Neal (Florida Georgia Line, Jason Aldean) with William Morris in Nashville. Plans are now in motion for One More Girl to share their music with new fans around the world.

A limited amount of tickets for the September 18th performance have just been released. Purchase yours online at www.mosaicplace.ca, by phone at (306) 624-2050 or in person at the Mosaic Place Box Office.

BRETT KISSEL OPENING FOR BRAD PAISLEY

 

Mosaic Place is pleased to announce that Brett Kissel will be opening for Brad Paisley at his October 11th performance. Tickets for the concert go on sale this Friday at 10am and are available through the Mosaic Place Box Office.

 

Kissel is a 23-year-old singer/songwriter who has released two independent albums, sold out countless shows, and earned two Canadian Country Music Association Award nominations, becoming its youngest nominee ever. He was primed for his major label debut album through Warner Music Canada, Started With A Song, released late last year.

 

Even before the album’s release, Kissel had already made radio history. With more than 93% of Canadian Country stations adding the first single “Started With A Song,” the track eclipsed the record for most adds at Canadian Country radio in one week, a record previously held by Taylor Swift. Since the album’s release, Kissel has become the talk of Canadian country music. He has seen the video for the debut single reach No. 1 at CMT, has scored three top 10 radio hits, and headlined a cross-Canada tour. To top it all off, Brett won his first Juno Award – becoming the first country artist to be awarded with Breakthrough Artist of the Year in 17 years.

 

The album, co-produced by Kissel with Ted Hewitt (Rodney Atkins) and CCMA Award-winner Bart McKay, is an exhilarating collection of music that can be best described as the New Wave of Old Country: each song a slice of real-life sentiment; emotional touchstones that run the gamut of highs and lows and explore such subjects as deep love, trying moments and poignant reflection, measured out by party anthems and a sense that something special is happening here.

 

Influenced by the likes of Johnny Cash, Glen Campbell, Buck Owens and George Strait, Brett Kissel is still very much his own man: a dynamic, charismatic performer, singer and songwriter and ready to make an imposing impression on the global country music scene with Started With A Song.

 

“I write music that’s true to myself, about experiences that I’ve had in my young age,” Kissel declares, “and it’s my hope that the fans and all the people listening are either touched by it or can escape wherever they need to escape from for three-and-a-half minutes.”

 

“I’ve been working on these songs for three years, and cannot wait to begin making new fans by playing around the world.”

 

When he finally reaches that goal – and you know that Brett Kissel has the confidence, determination and talent to pull it off – remember, of course, that it all Started With A Song.

 

Tickets for the October 11th performance at Mosaic Place start at $89.00 plus taxes and fees and may be purchased online Friday, June 6th, 10am at www.mosaicplace.ca, by phone at (306) 624-2050 or in person at the Mosaic Place Box Office.

JOHN FOGERTY

JOHN FOGERTY 

PERFORMS THE SONGS OF

CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL - 1969

Legendary musician John Fogerty has announced his upcoming coast-to-coast Canadian tour kicking off in St. John’s, Newfoundland on November 8. For the first time, this tour celebrates 1969 – the extraordinary year in which Fogerty wrote and produced THREE seminal albums with Creedence Clearwater Revival: BAYOU COUNTRY, GREEN RIVER, and WILLY AND THE POOR BOYS. Beginning with PROUD MARY, which quickly established him as an elite singer/songwriter, he wrote and produced an enormous volume of treasured recordings in a small amount of time that propelled Creedence Clearwater Revival to become the number one group in the world. The legacy of 1969 lives on with BORN ON THE BAYOU, GREEN RIVER, BAD MOON RISING, DOWN ON THE CORNER, and capped off with a song for the ages, FORTUNATE SON. All of this musical output occurred while the world’s cultural and political landscape was in upheaval. 1969 was an extraordinary time. The show will be centered around this year, but also include his complete catalog of hits. Tickets will go on sale beginning Friday, May 23 at www.livenation.com. Complete tour listing below.

 

Fans get early access to tickets, VIP packages, and more by joining the free John Fogerty fan club. Presale begins Tuesday, May 20 at 10am local time at www.JohnFogerty.com

 

John Fogerty is a true American treasure, one of popular music’s all-time greatest singers, guitar players, and songwriters.  His remarkable career began in his hometown of El Cerrito, California, soon earning massive popular and critical success with the one and only Creedence Clearwater Revival.  As leader of CCR, Fogerty forged a distinctive, groundbreaking sound all his own, equal parts blues, country, pop, rockabilly, R&B, swamp boogie, and Southern fried rock ‘n’ roll, all united by his uniquely evocative lyrical perspective.

 

After Creedence Clearwater Revival called it quits in 1972, Fogerty embarked on what would prove to be an equally impressive solo career.  Among its many highlights are 1975’s John Fogerty – featuring the rollicking ‘Rockin’ All Over The World’ – and 1985’s #1 phenomenon, Centrefield.  With its trio of timeless hit singles, including ‘The Old Man Down The Road,’ ‘Rock And Roll Girls,’ and the irresistible title track, the multi-platinum collection marked Fogerty’s glorious return to the forefront of modern rock ‘n’ roll.

 

1997’s Blue Moon Swamp earned Fogerty further acclamation, as well as a Grammy Award for ‘Best Rock Album.’  Among his many other honors are induction in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame, the BMI Pop Music Awards’ prestigious ‘BMI Icon,’ and Performance Magazine’s ‘Theater Tour of the Year’ Award.  In addition, Fogerty and ‘Centerfield’ were honored during the 2010 National Baseball Hall of Fame Induction Ceremonies – the first time the National Baseball Hall of Fame has immortalized a musician or song as part of the annual ceremonies.

 

In 2013, Fogerty released Wrote a Song for Everyone, a testament to the fact that the songs written by John Fogerty over the past forty-five years continue to speak in a powerful way to generations of music makers and music lovers.
