Jarrid Lee goes to #1
Jarrid Poitras aka Jarrid Lee is an award winning singer/songwriter from St.Paul who now currently resides in Saskatoon Saskatchewan. After his debut album released in June of 2020, Jarrid found himself on the Canadian Indie Country Countdown with host Walter James Scott climbing the charts starting in October of 2021. This countdown features some of Canada’s top Independent artists which means that they are not signed to a major record label and this countdown gives them the platform needed to reach wider audiences with the show broadcasting on 20 different stations and various countries around the world. “This past year was very challenging for me so I had to find ways to adapt and overcome during the midst of a global pandemic .” says Jarrid Lee. After 12 weeks of voting the first show of the year was aired so Jarrid was sitting at #3 and he had not yet heard his song being played when they got to the #1 spot on the countdown. “I was in disbelief, shock, and in total aww as Walter began reading my bio so I knew this year was starting off right I then got on the phone and called mama.” Explains Jarrid Lee.
Walter James Scott reads over Jarrid’s bio “He is originally from St.Paul Alberta, he is an award winning singer/songwriter. Growing up he followed his dad Rollie’s band called County Express to many events getting a taste of the music life. His dad Rollie bought him his first electric guitar at the age of 12 and that’s when the endless hours of swollen fingers and sled teaching began. Although he had not received any formal training music lessons or guitar lessons he decided to start writing music at the age of 14. Now living in Saskatchewan in only 4 short years he has played at numerous venues and shows across western Canada opening up for such names as Trooper, Collin Raye, David Lee Murphy, Midland, and his idol Luke Bryan. He has also opened up shows for Tom Cochrane, Red Rider, and also music legend Tanya Tucker and many many more. That is an impressive list. Here is Canada’s Jarrid Lee with his #1 song on the Canadian Indie Country Countdown Up on Stage.”
Jarrid explains further that he thanks ALL of his friends and family back home in the Lakeland as well as the new fans discovering Jarrid Lee for their continued love and support. “There will come a day when we can all gather together for some much needed live music but for now I’m only a click away.” To follow and support Jarrid please follow www.JarridLee.com for updates and a full length album is on the horizon.
