Country duo performs at Fionn MacCool’s this weekend

On the heels of their recent release County Line, country duo High Valley are set to play Fionn MacCool’s on Nov. 29th. The band (brothers Curtis and Brad Rempel) landed rave reviews as the lead single (the title track) shot up the charts to the Top 15 in less then a month and is made it to number two SoundScan’s Top Country Singles Chart in Canada.

Recognized as ‘Artists to Watch’ by both Billboard Magazine and Country Weekly, Brad and Curtis hail from the tiny community of La Crete, Alberta. Growing up on a 1,400-acre farm in the northern reaches of Alberta with music, farming and family as the basis of their entertainment, the Rempel’s musical language was formed at a very young age.

When they started out, the brothers booked gigs anywhere they could, playing cover songs to audiences of about 100-200 people. During these years, High Valley became a buzz-worthy act in Canada’s outlying areas.

Throughout their career so far, High Valley has earned many accolades including 10 GMA Canada Covenant Awards, multiple CCMA Award and JUNO Award nominations and the 2013 CCMA Award for Interactive Artist of the Year.

They’ve opened up for several major acts including Brad Paisley, Carrie Underwood,

Keith Urban, Little Big Town, Alan Jackson, Reba McEntire and Shania Twain mostly recently at the 2014 Calgary Stampede.

Meanwhile, County Line was recorded and produced by Billboard ‘Producer of the Year’ Seth Mosley in Franklin, Tennessee and features songs co-written by Brad Rempel, Ben Stennis (Jason Aldean), Fred Wilhelm (Faith Hill, Rascal Flatts, Little Big Town) and Canadian country music songwriter Deric Ruttan.

After recording roughly 50 demo tracks for the new CD, High Valley enlisted help from their fans and gave them the opportunity to vote for the 10 songs that would make the cut.

The brothers also work with Food For The Hungry, and this past September they journeyed to Burundi, Africa to visit some of families and children that are in need of support. To that end, throughout their County Line tour they are asking fans to help sponsor children so that they can have a better life.
