Nice Horse is wild: wildly talented, wildly entertaining, fun, fresh, fierce and feisty, and they’ve established themselves as one of the most buzzed-about and fast-rising groups in the Canadian music industry. A live act to be reckoned with, the self-contained all-female group has played high-profile festivals across Canada including Boots & Hearts, Big Valley Jamboree, and the Calgary Stampede, and has performed in Spain and France. They have also toured as direct support for legendary artists such as Tom Cochrane and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. The band, made up of Katie Rox (vocals / banjo / acoustic guitar), Brandi Sidoryk (vocals / bass), Tara McLeod (vocals / electric guitar), and Krista Wodelet (vocals / drums), has garnered significant accolades since forming in 2015, including ten Canadian Country Music Award (CCMA) nominations, eight Country Music Alberta Awards, and the 2021 and 2022 Western Canadian Music Award for Country Artist of the Year. Nice Horse released three singles in the past two years, all with a focus on DSPs. “Good At Missing You” (June 2021) peaked at #55 on BDS despite no formal radio campaign, and the song’s grassroots popularity continues to grow nearly two years after its release – in March 2022 it was added to Spotify’s Women of Country editorial playlist. “Trampoline” (October 2021) was added to a record number of playlists for the band in its first week, including four Apple Music playlists, four Amazon Music playlists, and five editorial Spotify playlists, in addition to a cover feature on YouTube’s “The New Crop”. The genre-defying video, released October 2021, has over 15,000 views on YouTube. “High School” (January 2021) has over 350,000 combined streams across all major platforms (Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, and YouTube). Created during the pandemic, the music video was a DIY effort by the band and is now their most viewed video on YouTube, with over 200,000 views since its premiere on March 12, 2021. It hit #1 on Stingray Hot Country Videos, and bassist Brandi and drummer Krista were nominated for Video Director(s) of the Year at the 2021 Canadian Country Music Awards. The video won the Canadian Country Music Association Award for Video of the Year (2022), Country Music Alberta award for Video of the Year, and the Canadian Independent Music Video Award for Best Country Video. Notable shows include a featured-artist evening slot at the Calgary Stampede’s Nashville North, opening slots for Barney Bentall and Jim Cuddy, a direct support tour for platinum-selling artist Tebey, and the halftime show at the Calgary Stampeders’ Labour Day Classic.
