New album Lonesome Stretch Of Highway out May 2020


EDMONTON, AB — Edmonton-based Royalty Records is proud to announce the signing of legendary Canadian singer-songwriter Mike Plume. The label will release Plume’s new album Lonesome Stretch Of Highway in May 2020, with the singles “Younger Than We Are Today” and “I’m Your Huckleberry” released to radio and digital service providers in February 2020.

Lonesome Stretch Of Highway finds Plume reborn in many ways. Its nine tracks bear his distinctive mark, 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.

Royalty Records president Rob Smith says, “I have been a fan of Mike as a writer, artist and performer for a long time. I am proud to have him working with Royalty and even more proud to say that, I believe we’re releasing the best work of his career to date.”

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.

Royalty Records hand picked Blake Reid to add to the label’s roster of new artists to be released this year.

Blake was one of the first 6 artists chosen to participate in the CCMA discovery program in 2013, where he quickly earned his reputation as a quality songwriter, inspired by his deep country roots.

“Everyone at Royalty is excited to have Blake join our family. We’ve been following Blake since last year and saw him perform and the CCMA’s in Edmonton. Blake is deeply embedded in country music and the agricultural community, which clearly inspires his song writing and singing by telling real life stories.” – Rob Smith

Blake Reid comes from a five-generation farm family who staked their claim in 1902, broke the land and made a life in Alberta. Blake grew up with country music, with his mom singing along with all the radio legends that echoed in the old farmhouse and Dad would tune into the daily grain prices. Blake spent thousands of hours listening to the evolution of country music through the AM radios of tractors, trucks, and combines.

Blake’s music is about my life and home. He finds himself drawn to the intimacy of farm life, found down every gravel road outside the city limits. Whether the dirt field beside your road is red, brown, or sandy, Blake believes we all turn our ear toward something real and genuine.

“I’m super excited to be partnering with Royalty Records going forward in 2014 and to begin work on my next record. I’m not going to give out too much info yet, but I will say this record is setting up to be really cool and fresh. Joining the Royalty family and working with Nashville Producer/writer Phil O’Donnell is definitely a big step toward success for my career.” – Blake Reid

Blake Reid hits the studio next month to work with Phil O’Donnell in Nashville and will have new music coming later this year!
