River Cree Tanya Tucker  

As the anticipation of the band started to take over we loaded off the tour bus and set up for our sound check a couple hours prior to showtime. We got to hang out with the band and reminisce about previous shows, road trips and the similarities between all musicians we share in love for music. I was backstage when I could hear the crowd start to grow when the doors opened at 7 and my heart began to race. The film crew was double checking their cameras and nervous jokes began to take over the room prior to the masters of ceremonies checking their wireless mics from backstage. As the lights began to dim a symbol of Jarrid Lee popped up on the big screen with beams of light began shining through clouds of smoke that filled the stage. Bruce “The Moose” Makokis read out Jarrid Lee’s bio and the band set up prior to hearing the final welcoming remarks let’s welcome to the stage Chief & Council. With drums beating and a strong E chord filled the River Cree Venue... a very emotional Jarrid Lee took the stage and commanded an excited crowd welcoming back everybody to a night of great music that we have all been waiting for.

Tanya Tucker being a legend in country music got everybody on their feet as the sun set on the prairies making this concert one of the best Jarrid Lee has played to date. Click HERE to see pictures of the event.

Nashville Trip  

After getting the call to head down to Nashville there was very little time to waste and when there is quick change that also brings quick opportunity. Marcella and I drove to North Dakota and flew from there and since it’s been more than a minute since I flew the doggy bag for nausea was my best friend. We had 6 days to make the best of our trip so we wrote 4 songs, met the amazing people behind the record label and planned out attack on the cities best sites. We went to the Country Music Hall of Fame, walked Broadway, did the backstage tour at The Grand Ol Opry and of course had to take in a good old hockey game. There were a lot of times when I didn’t feel worthy and still to this day I don’t know why I chosen but I will do my best and when the time comes we will be there on stage doing what it is we are destined to do with living my life’s purpose. I am a compassionate warrior leading others through knowledge wisdom and healing to help light up the world. To watch a quick clip of the trip please Click HERE

Knowing Our Spirits 

While attending an annual conference in Edmonton Alberta I was asked to help present a lifetime achievement award to Willie Littlechild who sits on the Truth & Reconciliation Commission of Canada as a lawyer. During this time I presented Willie with a song that in short helps tell the story of what happened here in Canada with residential school. The song “It’s Time” will be featured as a symbol for hope in a presentation conducted by Willie and will be presented to 69 different countries worldwide. Take a look at the conference highlights at the link below. Global News story cover by Sarah Komadina

NEW ALBUM OUT NOW 

"It's Time" is a 6 song album that has Jarrid walking a fine line between modern country and something new that can only be described as new Indigenous Country Music. 3 single tracks that have up beat two stepping on one hand and a deep grassroots connection to Jarrid's Iyiniw upbringing on the other hand. Here is a brief description of the album. 

Song 1. Let’s Get Gone (Single) - features world renowned fiddle player and award winning multi instrumentalist Jake Clayton from Nashville Tennessee sharing the stage with some of the biggest names in Country Music Jake elevates this song to new heights. Let's Get gone can be found on CBC Country channel 171 on Sirius XM and has also reached the Indigenous Music Countdown peaking at #8 and the Canadian Indie Country Countdown at #12.

Song 2. Good Man Down - I wrote this song after too many people telling me how to live my life... and yes with those all time favorite words (you should.) It seems that the older I get the more I get to decide what it is that I want to do with my life and there comes a time when you just have to say you can't keep a good man down and move forward.

Song 3. It’s Time- This song is the feature track off the whole album and was written 2 years ago with the sole intent of sharing what negative ripple effects are still present in today's society. It's time was written for Sept 30th's orange shirt day which is now known as Canada's Day for Truth & Reconciliation. Song is a unique blend of traditional hand drumming that represents the heartbeat we all hear from birth and features Indigenous Singer Marcus Longjohn.

Song 4. The Addict- This song was written last year for National Addictions Awareness Week and it touches on a lot of issues that people face today and there is hope for everyone all it takes is a helping hand and the will to change.

Song 5. All night (Single) A top 40 country song that tells the story of a boy meets girl, they fall in love have a family and grandkids. Their lives would all be changed forever and it started with just one kiss that took the boy all night. Based on a true story my good friend lost her husband to cancer and with her permission this is their song. All Night will be released in November with proceeds going towards men's cancer awareness.

Song 6. My best friend featuring "Chief & Council" no not that C&C but Jarrid's band of brothers that have been backing up Jarrid for the past few years is a song that tells the story of losing two very important people in Jarrid's life. Catch award winning Indigenous talent on this track with a nice touch of the northern sound we all grew up on.
