The Reklaws

The Reklaws are a one-of-a-kind duo made up of siblings Jenna and Stuart Walker, Florida Georgia Line meets Black Eyed Peas, they're proud to bring the party to every stage they stand on. With 240M+ Global Streams, 4 of the top 20 streamed singles by a Canadian country artist since 2019 (more than any other artist) and the most domestically streamed debut album in Canadian history, The Reklaws are poised to be the next big thing in Country music globally.

Jade Eagleson

Since day one Jade has had his sights firmly set on re-establishing the neo-traditional country’s place at the top of the charts and hasn’t stopped working toward this goal ever since. In 2017, Jade decided to step away from some of his duties on the family farm to pursue a long-time dream as a country music artist. At just 27 years of age, Jade Eagleson has made quite the mark on the international country music scene. Boasting 180+ Million Global Streams and 75M+ views on YouTube since the debut of his self-titled album (2020), which holds two GOLD-certified singles and one PLATINUM-certified single as well as the title of the most globally streamed debut album by a Canadian-signed country artist in history.

Geoff Warburton

Geoff Warburton is a Grammy-nominated songwriter from Toronto, Ontario who regularly works out of Nashville and Los Angeles. He's written songs for the likes of Shawn Mendes, 5 Seconds of Summer, and Keith Urban.

Todd Clark

Todd Clark is a Canadian award-winning songwriter, musician, and producer.

Travis Wood

Travis Wood is an award-winning songwriter and musician, best known for penning consecutive hit singles for the James Barker Band, including “Good Together,” “There’s A Drink For That,” “Keep It Simple,” and “Over All Over Again” the latter of which hit #1 at Canadian Country Radio this year. After quickly writing a slew of radio hits in Canada, totaling seven #1s and over a dozen top 10s, Wood made the move to Nashville to expand his presence. Wood signed a publishing deal with Creative Nation in 2019.

Dean Brody

Since his debut single “Brothers” hit the US Top-40 back in 2008, platinum-selling and multi-award-winning Dean Brody has become one of the most beloved Canadian country artists of his generation. A passionate storyteller and unmatched lyricist, Dean has risen and continues to remain at the top of the Canadian country landscape with an impressive 30 top-10 singles (6 of which went #1 - most recently with his history-setting “Boys” duet alongside country music’s fastest rising star Mickey Guyton) and has captured more than 235+ million global streams. Only Shania Twain has more Canadian streams than Dean when looking at Canadian country artists' “lifetime” results.

Griffen Palmer

Rising singer-songwriter, Griffen Palmer, relocated to Nashville upon graduating from Ohio’s Bowling Green State University after a successful Division 1 rugby career. With cuts from country superstars Florida Georgia Line (“Second Guessing”) and Keith Urban (“Polaroid”), the 25-year-old is fostering his talents among Big Loud Publishing’s game-changing roster of writers after signing his first publishing deal in 2019. He has recently had cuts with various artists including The Band Camino, Chelsea Cutler, Mackenzie Porter, Jade Eagleson, and others.


Making a name for herself in the US and Canada since the release of her debut EP in 2020, SACHA is one of country music’s fastest rising stars. Last year the breakout artist was named as a member of CMT’s Next Women Of Country 2021 class while also earning her first GOLD single with the viral hit track “What The Truck,” (w/The Reklaws), which was the fastest Canadian country song to go GOLD in history. Kicking off 2022, SACHA recently released her sophomore EP WE DID and saw the music video for its track "Pretty Please" debut in Times Square. She’ll be heading out on the road across the US this fall with Maddie and Tae.

Gavin Slate

He has also written several #1 songs in the Canadian market and has had success in the sync world with placements for Stella Artois, Major League Baseball, The Tonight Show, Walmart, ESPN and the NHL All Star Game etc.

Nate Haller

From a young age, Nate Haller has breathed, lived and loved music. Mentored by Zubin Thakkar (Shawn Mendes), and having played alongside Canada’s top artists (The Reklaws), Nate has lived through a crash course of the music industry in his 10+ years in the biz. Signed to Starseed Entertainment (Dean Brody, James Barker Band, The Reklaws, Jade Eagleson), 2021 saw Nate take his spot on centre stage with the debut of his first solo track. At its launch “Lightning In A Bottle” (March 2021), grabbed the #2 most added spot at Canadian Country radio and landed Nate his first Top 10 at Canadian country radio. This was followed up with the digital release of "Grew Up On," a track that brought his farm-town upbringing to life, “Broken,” a hard-hitting party anthem that showcased Nate’s infectious personality and his first collab with “Somewhere To Drink” featuring The Reklaws and Brett Kissel. To kick off 2022, Nate has taken his third single to radio with the release of “Ain’t Like Me” (Apr/22).

With a soft, caring side that pairs seamlessly with an undeniable gritty sound and style that only a small-town boy with heart and determination can offer, Nate brings a new enthusiasm and edge to the Canadian country genre. Approaching nearly 10 Million global streams with only four tracks released, fans can expect his debut EP and an announcement of tour dates later this year. Learn more about Nate Haller at
