JESS MOSKALUKE w/ Lisa Moen
An internationally celebrated artist, Jess Moskaluke continues to break barriers in the country music world with her big voice, pop-infused hooks and sonic versatility. The first Canadian female country artist since Shania Twain to achieve CRIA Platinum single status with the hit ‘Cheap Wine and Cigarettes’, Moskaluke has since gone on to earn CRIA Gold certifications for ‘Take Me Home’, ‘Kiss Me Quiet’ and a nod for her feature on Paul Brandt’s ‘I’m An Open Road’. She was also notably the first Canadian female country artist since 2008 to have a song in the Top 3 with ‘Drive Me Away’, and has notched another SIX Top 10 hits in addition to that including her first ever NUMBER ONE ’Country Girls’. The 2017 JUNO Award winner for ‘Country Album of the Year’, Moskaluke is also the 2018 CCMA Award winner for ‘Album of the Year’, a three-time consecutive CCMA ‘Female Artist of the Year’ Award winner – the first resident of Saskatchewan in the history of the awards to achieve this title – a 2017 SOCAN Award winner and recently took home the 2020 WCM Award for ‘Country Artist of the Year’.
Kicking off 2020 with ‘Country Girls’ topping the charts, Moskaluke’s follow-up track ‘Halfway Home’ landed in the Top 5 at Australian country radio, where in 2019, she played the C2C Music Festival and took part in CMC’s ‘Songs and Stories’ series, performing six songs for a one-hour special. She delivered her Top 15 single ‘Mapdot’, a personal ode to small-town pride and the place she’s proud to call home, ahead of the release of The Demos in February, and her current Top 40 track ‘Nothin’ I Don’t Love About You’ continues to rise at Canadian Country radio. In addition to her music, Moskaluke continues to explore other avenues including her highly anticipated ‘Handpicked by Jess’ subscription box drops, with previous versions selling out in less than 24 hours.

Country Singer/Songwriter and the recipient of the 2021 International Singer songwriters Association Award for Entertainer of the Year Award
Aaron Halliday is a Canadian country music singer/songwriter who lives in Kelowna, BC. Aaron has more than 20 years of playing behind him, with a wide open road ahead.
Many years ago, Halliday received the surreal combination of a sweet compliment and serious kick in the butt when, while busking on Rideau in Ottawa, none other than Canadian legend Stompin' Tom Connors dropped a $20 in his case and told him he was too good to be doing things this way and it was time to get off the street. Halliday took that, and the strong influences of both Merle Haggard and Alan Jackson, and determined to take the whole thing a whole lot more seriously.
The influence of, along with a striking resemblance to, Alan Jackson has led to a 25+ year stint as an Alan Jackson tribute artist. Most recently, though, Halliday is coming into his own as a writer and solo artist of his own making in a style that he calls Dirt Country with a Roots and Traditional feel.
Pre-Covid, Halliday was doing an astonishing 150 shows a year across Canada. He, and his wife Sharyn, are constantly working to book and rebook shows and tours and have earned the kind of respect the leads to repeat bookings and appreciation for what they do.
With that kind of history, that level of professionalism, and his relentless current activity, Aaron Halliday is an important part of the Kelowna country music scene.
