The Best in Local Country Songwriting!


Wrapping up with two showcase appearances at the 2014 CCMAs in Edmonton, Brea started off 2015 as a CMAO Nominee for Female Artist of the Year and Rising Star, and the release of her third album ‘#Brealieve’. Brea joined with Shawn McCullough and his band Double Back this spring to perform at festivals and fairs such as RBC Ottawa Bluesfest, Kemptville Live Music Festival, opening for great acts from Brett Kissel to Tom Cochrane to The Road Hammers. Five songs from Brea‘s #Brealieve album have been released to Canadian Country Radio and all charted in the top 100. Brea‘s latest single “Canadian Pearl” is being played on radio stations across Canada and is climbing the charts.


Guitar player/singer/alternative lyricist Shawn McCullough helps you break up your week and give you a little social fix. Shawn has played and toured with Canadian Country star Jason McCoy (The Roadhammers) and has been a part of Telecaster supergroup The Telebastards featuring Steve Piticco, as well as a member of DoubleBack with Wade Foster and John Wilberforce. He is highly in demand as a session musician and sideman for his incredible skill, wit and stage presence. He has a solo record to his name “This is Me” and is currently performing with rising Country star Brea Lawrenson.


Born and raised in Perth, ON, Wade is known all over the Ottawa Valley and beyond as a multi-instrumentalist and singer.  He is most recognized as a versatile fiddle player bringing new sounds into all genres of music, not just traditional fiddle.  With a true passion for music and creativity, Wade enjoys performing and writing all styles of music. From country to bluegrass, rock to contemporary, celtic to folk, and everything in between, you will find him enjoying every second.  Besides fiddle, Wade also plays acoustic and lead guitar, mandolin, bass, and sings lead and harmony vocals.

Wade’s first recordings as a composer can be found on his CD “Sounds Like Home”.  It features original instrumental pieces of various styles using the fiddle as the lead instrument.  It is available for sale on iTunes and Amazon.

Experienced in all types of venues, Wade has performed with an ever-growing list of artists.  You may have seen him perform with Johnny Reid, Grand Ole Opry member Stonewall Jackson, Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame members Barry and Tracy Brown, Ottawa Valley Country Music Hall of Fame member Gail Gavan, Brea Lawrenson, DW James, Jay Aymar, Jeff Callery, and many more.  He has been a part of opening acts for Kix Brooks, Tom Cochrane, Tim Hicks, Brett Kissell, Blue Rodeo, Sammy Kershaw, Michelle Wright, Jason McCoy, Paul Brandt,  …. the list goes on.

As well as a busy schedule of performances, Wade is pleased to offer fiddle, guitar, mandolin, and bass guitar lessons in the Perth, ON region.  Feel free to contact him for private lessons for students ages 8 through adult.  Lessons may also be available at selected public schools for children.  Contact Wade to see how this may be possible for your child.
