Jason Kirkness
Biography

Growing up in a small farming community in Southeast Manitoba, Jason Kirkness found his heart in country music. Since then he has been heavily influenced by the new Nashville sound while never straying too far from his roots. Jason Kirkness is a songwriter by nature but for his debut full-­-length solo album, Life on the Road, he's opted to feature work from Bruce Wallace & Steven Lee Olson (Ole/Roots 3, Nashville) along with local songwriter William Prince. Jason and William spent a lot of time together working out the themes and stories they wanted to share with the fans but Jason's tour schedule left William to finish the songs on his own. The two have already started to co-­- write Jason's next album. The first single from Life on the Road is entitled “Run Me Away”, and it was released to radio in February 2011. Jason has performed hundreds of shows throughout his home province of Manitoba and across Canada including opening spots for The Roadhammers and Deric Ruttan, along with showcases at the Canadian Country Music Awards in Edmonton and Canadian Music Week in Toronto. He and his band will continue to connect with audiences across Canada in 2011 with dates already confirmed from BC to Quebec as well as the Northwest Territories. Currently, Jason has a management and development contract with Contact Artist Management, who is also the home of country artist Jerry Sereda, Ron Loutit and previously handled development and management for Bryce Pallister. Jason has also signed a Record and Distribution Deal with MDM Recordings which means national distribution through Conveyor/Universal.
