Nice Horse heads to Red Deer for Oct. 15th performance

Calgary country band Nice Horse is set to make their Red Deer debut Oct. 15th at the Elks Lodge as part of the Central Music Festival Series.

Tickets are available online at www.centralmusicfest.com.

Nice Horse is Brandi Caroline, Kaley Debra, Katie Marie and Krista Lee – long-time friends and musicians who are familiar faces on the western Canadian music scene.

All are born and raised in Alberta – the girls’ respective hometowns include Rocky Mountain House, Airdrie, Vegreville, and Calgary – and all have previously toured through Red Deer with past musical projects as well, including Sidney York, Kaley Bird, Katie Rox and Jakalope.

The band’s inaugural Red Deer performance, in a way, represents a kind of homecoming – especially for Katie Marie, who is a graduate of the music program at Red Deer College.

“I’m really looking forward to it,” said the singer and banjo player. “It’s been a few years since I’ve been back, and I can’t wait to play again in the town that played such a big part in my growth as a musician.”

Since forming as a band just a year ago, Nice Horse has signed with veteran management company Coalition Music (Our Lady Peace, Simple Plan, Ben Caplan) and is working on their first full-length album with producer Jeff Dalziel (Washboard Union, Lindsay Broughton, Brett Kissel).

Tour dates will be announced via the band’s social properties throughout the year, and fans are encouraged to stay tuned for additional news by checking out www.nicehorsemusic.com.

Over the course of their respective careers to date, members of the band have toured across the globe, licensed songs for film, television, and commercials and showcased domestically and internationally including the Calgary Stampede, Folk Alliance, and SXSW.

Individually, they’ve shared the stage with artists as diverse as Carly Rae Jepsen and Steve Earle, sung as the original lead vocalist for the aforementioned Jakalope, lent backups to Mandy Moore, and have over 10 full-length album releases between them, but they’re not ready to settle down, as their bio points out.
