Robby Johnson 

When Robby Johnson came to Nashville to cut a couple of songs, he never imagined that he’d end up in the recording studio as a full-fledged artist with six of his own tunes on the project and then shooting a music video with director Ryan Smith (My Kinda Party). But life works in amazing ways sometimes, as Robby proves.

When his parents went through a painful divorce and his mother moved Robby and his brothers to a small town in Quebec, the boy turned to television as a way to handle his loneliness. He soaked up American programs, songs and movies, perfecting his accent-free English through exposure to a variety of videos, shows and networks. Poverty and shyness were a way of life for Robby growing up, but in his imagination he dreamed big. He always believed that one day – some day – he would find a path toward the life he hoped for. 

His destiny finally took form one Christmas when he received a paid demo session as a present. The experience changed him forever. It was the first time he realized his voice might be special and that his songs could affect those who heard them. In 2012, Robby decided to come to Nashville and cut more songs. So strongly did he believe in his dream that even when the company where he worked as a manufacturers’ sales rep refused to give him time off, he took a leap of faith and moved to Nashville.

In Nashville, renowned studio musician/producer Jimmy Nichols was brought in to oversee arrangements, but when he recognized the potential of Robby’s talent, Nichols turned to Grammy and multi-award winning songwriter/guitarist Frank Myers (“I Swear,” “I’m Already There,” “Tomorrow”) and together they started helping Robby find his way through Nashville’s Music Business. “The minute we started working with Robby, we threw out the rule book,” says Nichols. “Everything was so different with him from the beginning. He has the makings of a true artist.” Echoes Myers, who likens Robby’s sound. “He definitely has the ‘it factor.’ I really believe Robby has the potential to fill a void right now in country music.”

Their work paid off as one of the songs they recorded broke Top 20 on US country radio charts, a rare accomplishment for an independent artist. Even more unbelievable is when Robby was invited to perform his single on the LATE SHOW with David Letterman. This unprecedented success opened the doors to incredible collaborations for Robby’s first album. Legendary producer James Stroud stepped in and helped Robby gather songs from Nashville’s top songwriters including Luke Laird, Ashley Gorley, Dallas Davidson, Shane McAnally and Sam Hunt just to name a few. As an added treat, country music giant, Vince Gill, plays an electrifying guitar solo on one of Robby’s songs titled “I Ain’t The Guy”.

With interest building and a buzz underway about Robby’s upcoming album, the singer-songwriter seems poised for stateside success, something he’s pinching himself to realize.

 

Don't miss his show on Saturday June 17th at 9:30 pm on the "Grande Scène Constructions Patrick Sévigny"

Meghan Patrick 

Born and raised in Bowmanville, Ontario, Meghan Patrick has dedicated her entire life to music, wanting it to be more than just a passion. “I was drawn to playing guitar so I could start writing music to go along with the words I was writing. I wanted to be self-sufficient as a creative artist.”  It wasn’t long until Meghan had mastered both electric and acoustic guitar as well as the banjo. 

Prior to setting out as a solo artist, Meghan was the lead singer of the popular roots act The Stone Sparrows. A newgrass/bluegrass band, The Stone Sparrows released an EP and a full-length album before the members parted ways amicably in 2013 after playing their second Boots and Hearts Festival.

Meghan has quickly made a name for herself since signing to Warner Music Canada.  She has recently signed a publishing deal with Olé Nashville.  Her debut album, Grace and Grit is set to be released in the spring of this year.  To make this album, Meghan travelled to a number of studios in Canada and America, including the capital city of country music, Nashville.  On the way, she worked with producers Justin Niebank (Vince Gill, LeAnn Rimes), Vince Gill, Chris Baseford (Nickelback, Avril Lavigne) and Carly McKillip.  To add even more star power to her debut Meghan brought in a few more big names, including multiple Grammy nominee Joe Nichols who duets with her on “Still Loving You,” and fellow Canadian Chad Kroeger, who co-wrote and produced her forthcoming debut single “Bow Chicka Wow Wow” along with several other cuts on the album. 

In addition to Kroeger, Grace and Grit features an impressive list of cowriters, which includes Rodney Clawson (CMA Songwriter of the Year, ACM Song of the Year and Grammy Nominated), Gord Bamford, Chantal Kreviazuk, Marty Dodson, Patricia Conroy, Bruce Wallace, Buddy Owen, Phil Barton, Phil O'Donnell and Andrew Allan.  What’s more, superstar engineer Justin Niebank, who has mixed for the likes of Taylor Swift, Blake Shelton and Hunter Hayes is mixing the entire record. 

The songs Meghan writes are about real-life situations and are both personal and autobiographical. They are story songs, but they are her stories which infuse the material with an authenticity and sincerity that is palpable.

“I have to feel connected to the music, especially when I am playing live. The emotions I write about are real and audiences know when you are being true to yourself. Performing my own music and forming a bond with my audience is what I do this for. And that’s the most enjoyable thing in the world.”
