TOP 40 CHART   

After receiving a notification that my new song “Let’s Get Gone” was added to a countdown that features some of North America’s top Indigenous Artists I nearly jumped out of my skin.

The Indigenous Music Countdown is hosted by Roz McIvor, who spotlights today’s best new Indigenous music and shares interviews from artists who range from several genres including; hip-hop, rock, country, alternative, rock, folk and pop/dance. 

NCI has been producing Canada’s longest running Indigenous music chart program since 2000. 

“The name change is in recognition of the term Indigenous, now commonly used both nationally and globally. Over the last few years we’ve also begun to receive music from as far away as Australia and the U.S., so it’s a natural progression. We’re also experiencing a lot of momentum because of a very wide reach, due to our broadcast partners.” said David McLeod, Executive Producer of the IMC. 

“We began airing the countdown after partnering with NCI in January of 2015 and continue to recognize the amazing music that exists within the Indigenous community,” said Jeff Leake, Director, Music Programming, SiriusXM Canada. “We’ve also added a number of singles to our regular rotation from the Indigenous Music Countdown.”

Being able to share my music with listeners from all over Turtle Island is now a dream come true and I hope we can gain your love and support through some very much needed votes to climb the chart.

New Radio Single  

Are you ready for some new music? 

"Let's Get Gone" based on a true story.....just ask my wife Marcella J Poitras she's the one who wanted to get the heck out of St.Paul and back into the big bright city lights of Saskatoon.  
We literally left every stone unturned in my old dirt town and decided to just pack up one night and go, so as we were packing I laughed and told her I know you don't like it here so................... 
"LETS GET GONE!" 

I'm more than certain we have all been feeling a little  more than cooped up lately and this song is dedicated to anyone that has been craving that feeling of walking down the isle to an awaiting jet plane or to the avid road tripper this song is definitely for YOU!  

OFFICIAL RELEASE DATE: June 3rd to Canadian Country Radio and College Radio in North America along with June 10th on all Digital Platforms 

Pre-save is song here


 Yours in music Jarrid Lee

New Music Video coming soon......... 

It’s apparent that every artist needs to be able to have a visual along with their music that can better tell the story so we are doing just that. I have been living in Saskatoon for 5 years now and I have had the opportunity of working in one of the most beautiful buildings downtown called the Remai Modern Art Gallery where we filmed “Up on Stage” on location as well as the rooftop.

Once I had an idea in my head it was hard to let go so I began searching out for people to help make this visual art into a living piece I can be proud of and I didn’t have to search very far until running into Canadian Indigenous Hip Hop Legend Barry “Blu” Morin.

We began coming up with a story line with the purpose  behind the music video focused on being up on stage alone with no fans, and with all the back and forth work we put into the storyline I’m certain you will all like it. We find as artists we are missing entertaining along with all of your loving support as fans we all miss being “Up on Stage.”

Stay tuned for a sneak peek of the music video on YouTube, Facebook, Tidal and Vimeo in May of 2021.... and NEW MUSIC COMING SOON TOO!!!!!!!

Racism in the industry? 

Too many times I’ve been faced with racism in my life to count and I didn’t expect it from my colleagues but it is what it is. Let’s talk about and make things right so we can have a better brighter future. To read part of the story click the link.

“Up on Stage hits #1 Spot  

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.

New Podcast and Live Shows 

I have decided that interviewing other artist will both be beneficial for them and myself to expand out network of like minded individuals to enhance the music experience for most listeners. I started my own podcast called "Backstage Pass" which has been, and will be airing every Saturday Night at 7pm CST on my Facebook Fan page at JarridPoitrasMusic where you can capture emerging artists as well as a few special highly established artists for an intimate interview from the comfort and safety of your own space. Each artist will be sharing new music live and unplugged along with the inspiration behind the songwriting process along with their personal story and journey that will be a way to for surely warm your heart.

 We hope that you can watch a few of the interviews and really get to know the artists you love behind the curtains for an up close and personal encounter hosted by yours truly for an exciting take on life in the music industry with the show called "Backstage Pass."

See you all on there

Jarrid Lee

    I remember your first unplugged live concert on the Conklin airstrip. That was epic and the beginning of a spectacular career. Awesome work and dedication and I'm honored to call you brother. The charged meeting speaker, your amp and two microphones. I seen it "up on stage" that night. Can't wait for you to rock the wedding!
