George Canyon

Cana­di­an coun­try music leg­end George Canyon is con­tin­u­al­ly meld­ing his love of fam­i­ly with his pas­sion for music; his integri­ty and ded­i­ca­tion to his fam­i­ly are reflect­ed through the songs he writes and the sto­ries he tells. A mul­ti-JUNO award win­ner and PLATINUM sell­ing artist, Canyon’s lat­est album I Got This finds him back in the sad­dle; a cul­mi­na­tion of two years of writ­ing, and work­ing with incred­i­bly tal­ent­ed writ­ers, pro­duc­ers and musi­cians. Show­ing no signs of slow­ing down, Canyon had a fan­tas­tic 40 date run of the “Jekyll and Noth­ing To Hide” 2016 cross Cana­da tour. “I want­ed to cre­ate a record that was fun to play, and excit­ing for the fans to lis­ten to.  It’s been a while since I’ve had an album of new orig­i­nal songs, and these songs put a smile on my face” says Canyon.

I Got This debuted as the #1 Cana­di­an Coun­try album at its time of release (Feb 5th, 2016), and held the top spot for 5 weeks. The title track and  “Daugh­ters Of The Sun”  both went Top 10 in Cana­da at Coun­try radio.

I Got This marks Canyon’s eleventh full-length release in a career that spans near­ly two decades and includes the GOLD-cer­ti­fied albums “One Good Friend”, “Clas­sics”, “Some­body Wrote Love” and the Richard Marx pro­duced “Bet­ter Be Home Soon”. With 400,000 albums sold world­wide, mul­ti­ple major act­ing roles on tele­vi­sion, and the 2015 launch of his radio show “Down East Coun­try with George Canyon”, the singer-song­writer has cement­ed his sta­tus as a bona fide mul­ti-faceted artist and per­former.

A Nova Sco­tia native, Canyon was recent­ly induct­ed into the Nova Sco­tia Coun­try Music Hall of Fame and has been wide­ly dec­o­rat­ed with a num­ber of acco­lades includ­ing mul­ti­ple CCMA and ECMA Awards in addi­tion to his mul­ti­ple JUNO Award wins. As the nation­al spokesper­son for the Juve­nile Dia­betes Research Foun­da­tion and a vocal advo­cate and sup­port­er of the Cana­di­an Mil­i­tary, Canyon was also pre­sent­ed with the CCMA “Human­i­tar­i­an of the Year” Award in recog­ni­tion of his phil­an­thropic endeav­ours with both orga­ni­za­tions.

George released his lat­est sin­gle ‘More You’ on Octo­ber 13, 2017 with a brand new album set for release in 2018.
