VIDEOS | The Prairie States Rock Collingwood | Sidelaunch Celebration

Consider This ...


An extraordinary show was put on by this awesome young Edmonton, Alberta ROCKSTARS! Well done gentleman, welcome to Collingwood, please visit us again!!!

With a sound fueled by searing guitars, modern rhythms, and soulful vocals, The Prairie States was born out of a desire to put a fresh touch on a classic design. As nine time Country Music Alberta Award recipients including the 2018 Rising Star, 2019 and 2021 Horizon Group/Duo Of The Year, 2020 Songwriters of the Year, and 2021 Album Of The Year, as well as 1st place in the 2018 Project Wild Artist Development Program, it’s proof that this Edmonton based band is moving in the right direction.

Mat Cardinal, Jeff Dick, Mike Nash, Doc de Groot, and Jay Der formed The Prairie States in 2017 and immediately started writing songs for their full length album, Lost In The Right Direction. Independently released in June 2018, it was nominated for the CMAB Album Of The Year and included three radio singles, which all broke the top 100 Mediabase Canadian Country Chart. Since then, the band has released four more singles, Every Little Town, Low Life, High That I’m Riding, and Ferris Wheel all of which also cracked the top 100.

The group’s latest release, Rebel Phase, is about taking a soaring leap of faith, without a parachute, past a world surrounded by safety nets. It’s about roots that continue to grow but never stay planted. It’s about living a life that you chose, not one that’s chosen for you.

The Prairie States have been out on the road and wowing crowds with their undeniable live show. In their short time as a band, they’ve shared stages with Aaron Goodvin, Clayton Bellamy, as well as Brothers Osborne and Canadian legend Charlie Major while kicking off the 2019 Big Valley Jamboree.

Ready with a stack of brand new recordings underway with Juno and CCMA award winning producer Bart McKay, this band shows no signs of slowing down.
