New Release

Stream Mike Plume’s New Singles Today


TORONTO ON — Today, acclaimed Canadian singer/songwriter Mike Plume is releasing not one, but two singles in anticipation of his latest album Lonesome Stretch Of Highway this May, his first in partnership with Edmonton-based Royalty Records. The choice to release two songs out of the gate reflects the album’s musical diversity and Plume’s reinvigorated approach to writing, with “Younger Than We Are Today” displaying a classic alt-country sound and “I’m Your Huckleberry” taking a more folksy approach with it’s clever lyricism.

Both singles are available to purchase and stream now on all digital platforms, and can be heard exclusively at Roots Music Canada.

Lonesome Stretch Of Highway finds Plume reborn in many ways. Its nine tracks bear his distinctive stamp, but with an added crackling energy that’s a byproduct of hard-won experience. Recorded in his adopted hometown of Edmonton, the album marks Plume’s third collaboration with producer Marek David, and the first time they’ve worked together since 2001’s Fools For The Radio.

“I think with this record, patience has been the key,” Plume explains. “Some of these songs were kicking around for a long time, but they just weren’t ready. They just didn’t feel finished at the time I wrote them. Close, but not quite. I knew they had potential, so I just kept going back to them on a regular basis. I’m glad that I kept working on them, kneading them, massaging them, because that craftsman-like mentality has, I feel, helped this album to be among the best I’ve made.”

Having first arrived on the scene in the midst of the alt-country insurgency of the early 1990s, Mike Plume and his loyal band have logged countless miles around the globe, touring with the likes of Steve Earle, The Mavericks, John Hiatt and others, while befriending legends such as Levon Helm and Stompin’ Tom Connors. The lessons he’s learned along the way have left an indelible mark on Lonesome Stretch Of Highway, with songs such as “Younger Than We Are Today,” “I’m Your Huckleberry,” “It’s A Long Way” (featuring The Road Hammers), and “Perfume And Gasoline” destined to take a place among his best-loved tunes.

Plume has long been known for his richly detailed storytelling style and unyielding devotion to rock and roll’s original spirit. That’s all present on Lonesome Stretch Of Highway, powered by Plume’s earthy, uncompromising voice. That combination is proof that one of Canada’s most accomplished singer/songwriters remains at the top of his game and is ready to hit that highway again.

More details to come! Mike Plume is available for interviews and on-air appearances.

“This EP, if you listen to the lyrics, is about self discovery whether that be through someone who hurt you, someone you’ve lost, or the person you’ve shaded yourself to be.  As a new artist I’m trying to figure out my place in the mix and this album is a good representation of the last few years of my life. There are a lot of question marks in the lyrics.  I’ve been blessed to write with so many amazing writers but I felt like the stuff we wrote was better suited for my second album, allowing room for growth and to show another side of me… as there seems to be a few of those!” – Amy Metcalfe

With a love to perform and be on stage rooted in a 13 year dance career Amy aspires to impact Canadian Country Music in a big way by embracing radio and performances across Canada.  Her hopes are that with every performance and listen you experience, you leave with a sense of who she is and can relate to the life in her lyrics.

Award-Winning Canadian Country Artist Tenille Releases New Album “Light”!

February 14,






Toronto, ON – 2012 CCMA Slaight Music Humanitarian Award recipient Tenille will release her sophomore album Light on Tuesday, March 12, 2013. The album features the single “Dear Heart,” which is currently being played on Canadian Country radio. Additionally, on February 23 Tenille will host her annual Big Hearts For Big Kids fundraiser at the TEC Centre in her hometown of Grande Prairie, Alberta. The evening will include performances by Tenille as well as top Canadian Country acts including Deric Ruttan, Jason McCoy, Victoria Banks, The Jeffersons, Sean Hogan and Wyatt. To date, Big Hearts For Big Kids has raised nearly $200,000. All proceeds go to Sunrise House; a Grand Prairie-based, emergency youth shelter that serves a wide area of Northern Alberta.


Based on the concept that light and hope can be found anywhere, even in the darkest corners of a person’s life, Light showcases Tenille’s substantial growth as an artist and her belief that music has the power to motivate people to make positive changes in their own lives and the lives of others. Nowhere is that clearer than on songs like “Pay It Forward,” the theme song for her 2012-2013 Canadian ‘Play It Forward’ tour, and lead single “Dear Heart,” co-written with Gordie Sampson (Carrie Underwood, Martina McBride), Caitlyn Smith (Rascal Flatts) and Kelly Archer (Jason Aldean, Dustin Lynch) – which expresses Tenille’s willingness to share her own vulnerability and openness with the world.


“I can’t wait to share Light with everyone,” says Tenille. “The songs and the messages on this record mean so much to me and I had a blast working on it with an amazing team of musicians and my producer, Fred Mollin. Watching them breathe life into these songs was an unforgettable experience.”


On the strength of her 2011 Royalty Records debut, Real, which entered the SoundScan Country chart at #13 the first week of its release, Tenille became the youngest artist ever nominated for the coveted Canadian Country Music Award for Female Artist of the Year (2011), and in 2012 the youngest recipient of the CCMA Slaight Music Humanitarian Award. That same year the 18-year-old’s talent and dedication garnered her the Grand Prairie and District Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Award for Young Entrepreneur of the Year. In early 2013, Tenille took home the Association of Country Music in Alberta’s Fan’s Choice Award, won the ACMA Female Artist of the Year Award for the second year running and was honoured with a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal.
