Blackie Jackett Jr.

Blackie Jackett Jr.


Blackie Jackett Jr. was born in the back of a tour bus and grew up in bars, hotel rooms and truck stops. He was born in the drunken minds of Finger Eleven guitarists James Black and Rick Jackett as they traveled around the continent. Their repertoire of upbeat, drunken train wreck sing-alongs were written on the road, but it wasn’t until the duo went home to Toronto that the songs really came alive.

Nice Horse

Nice Horse


Nice Horse is what happens when four bold, brilliant and badass women get together to raise a little hell – and play a little music at the same time. Alberta natives Kaley, Katie, Brandi and Krista are out to turn the tables on the country music world and show the guys that they can rock just as hard. Sure, there are plenty of strong female country artists in Daisy Dukes out there, but try to name another self-contained unit that plays their own instruments and writes songs as potent as “Jim, Jack, Johnnie & Jose,” feminist anthem “Mansplainin’” and as fun as the band’s roof-raising single “Pony Up.”
