“When the going gets tough......just get tougher.” That's the attitude that has helped Jason Petric achieve everything he has in his young career. In a short period of time, this 23 year-old singer songwriter from Winnipeg, Manitoba has developed a reputation as a solid musician and artist in the music scene. His fresh sound and good looks are an asset, but it's his die hard work ethic that has gained him traction.
Jason released his self-titled debut EP in 2011, and his song “You're So Beautiful,” accompanied by a video, gained the attention of radio stations in Manitoba and neighbouring provinces. This led to Jason working with award winning producer Chris Burke-Gaffney. His song “Sunny Days” will be released to Canadian Country Radio March 11, 2013, followed by the release of his second album “TEASE” set for April 27, 2013.
While writing and recording, along with trips to Nashville, in preparation for his upcoming CD, Jason has been busy performing. Past performances include opening act for DOC WALKER at Summer In The City, opening for Keith and Renee at the Lockport Dam Family Festival, sold out shows at The Boot Tavern and The Royal George, and various venues in and around Winnipeg.
Jason has also had the honour of performing acoustically alongside Hit Writers in Nashville, which include The Listening Room Cafe, Commodore Grill, and Gary Hannan's Beer For Breakfast, and others. In February 2013, Jason was showcased at the Douglas Corner Cafe, a famous Nashville location used to launch the careers of Garth Brooks, Jason Aldean, and many others.
Having gained the attention of people in the industry, and with an action packed spring and summer ahead, Jason is showing no signs of slowing down. In a business where “The DREAM vs The DRIVE” sets people apart, Jason, referred to as one of the hardest working artists, is well on his way!
