Over the course of a long and illustrious career now spanning more than 40 years, the pride of Lynn Lake, Manitoba has covered more terrain than the Franklin expedition.
From early beginnings as a folk-based singer/songwriter playing the coffeehouses of Toronto's famed Yorkville scene in the early '70s, Tom Cochrane became the driving force in adventurous rockers Red Rider prior to achieving massive international success (over six million copies sold worldwide and diamond-sales status at home) with breakthrough 1991 album Mad Mad World and its anthemic hit "Life Is A Highway."
Since then, Tom has continued to create potent new material while cementing his place in the hearts of Canadians through crowd-pleasing performances from coast to coast and his unwavering work on behalf of humanitarian causes and organizations.
Mariel Buckley’s momentum has built quickly, recently earning her Roots Solo Artist of the Year at the 2019 WCMA's. She finds herself one of alt-country’s busiest acts, with recent performances in support of k.d. lang, Hayes Carll, Sarah Shook & The Disarmers, The Deep Dark Woods and Serena Ryder.
In contrast to her dynamic and electric live show, built on the gritty foundations of Americana and roots music, her songwriting has been described as melodic and tender and, according to Jonathan Frahm of PopMatters, a "dazzling and assured take on the sounds of classic country".
