For fans and tastemakers alike, The Washboard Union is one of the most talked about bands in Canadian Country Music today. Led by Aaron Grain, Chris Duncombe, and David Roberts, who are songwriters and performers in the truest sense, the band is bursting with infectious energy both on and off the stage. Fifteen (15) time award winners, the band placed nine awards on the mantle in 2017, taking home their third Canadian Country Music Award (second for Roots Group of the Year), and the Western Canadian Music Award for Country Artist of the Year, as well as a record seven British Columbia Country Music Association Awards. They took home 2 CCMA’s in 2016, and have 4 previous BCCMA Awards.
The Washboard Union have had 4 Top 20 singles and 3 top 10 hits in the last year, both from their recent In My Bones EP, and a hit single from their forthcoming album with Warner Music Canada. Their smash hit single “Shot of Glory” became certified gold in September 2017, marking the hard work and passion they bring to their role in Canadian country music.
The Washboard Union have shared the stage with Zac Brown Band, Keith Urban, The Band Perry, Toby Keith, Jason Aldean, Old Dominion, Reba McEntire, and were invited to tour Canada with the legendary Dwight Yoakam. They’ve played nearly every stage in Canada from major country music festivals including Big Valley Jamboree, Dauphin’s Countryfest, Country Thunder, and Rockin’ River Music Fest, to headlining The Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver, Nashville North at the Calgary Stampede, Stars and Thunder in Timmins, ON and countless more.
