Just named as this year's “Rising Star” and
“Roots Artist of the Year”
at the 2016 Canadian Country Music Awards!
In the few years they have been together, The Washboard Union have defied classification and become one of the most exciting and talked about new bands on the Canadian Country music scene. They are a sextet out of Vancouver led by principal members Aaron Grain, Chris Duncombe, and David Roberts, who share a very similar unconscious soundtrack and unbridled love for the art of song writing and storytelling. The three have been friends seemingly forever and the music they make has set them apart as one of the most unique talents in country music today. They signed with Warner Music Canada, Slaight Music, and Sakamoto Agency in early 2015 and released their album ‘In My Bones’ released in July 2015 to critical acclaim. Their 2nd single, ‘Maybe It’s the Moonshine’ peaked at #10 at Canadian Country radio, and they recently recorded their latest song “In My Bones” in the legendary RCA Studio A in Nashville Tennessee, originally built as the home of Chet Atkins.
