Biography

Canadian country music sensation, Brad Johner, continues on a roll with the release of his sophomore solo album, Summertown Road. Picked as the #4 Canadian Country album of 2005 by Canadian Country Music News, it’s a fitting follow-up to his successful and Juno-nominated solo debut Free.

Summertown Road is already showing signs of being another huge success spawning three Top 10 songs and videos and garnering more than it’s fair share of awards and nominations.

The recognition quickly followed the release of the album when in March 2006 Johner won the indie award for “Favourite Country Artist/Group” at Canadian Music Week in Toronto. Momentum continued at the Canadian Country Music Awards, Johner was one of the top nominated artists receiving nominations for “Male Artist of the Year”, “Independent Male Artist of the Year”, “Album of the Year ('Summertown Road')”, “CMT Video of the Year ('I've Got It Good')”, “Independent Single of the Year ('I've Got It Good')”, “Album Design of the Year,” and “Record Producer of the Year”. A few months later, the 2006 Western Canadian Music Awards nominated the album for "Outstanding Country Recording", the same award he won in 2003 for Free.

On the touring front, Brad keeps up a hectic tour schedule from coast-to-coast, consistently perfoming over 80 shows per year. Several high profile performances this past year included Johner with the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra, Symphony New Brunswick, a performance for Queen Elizabeth II, and the headline act at the Canada Summer Games openning ceremonies.

No surprise! Brad has always preached: "Take care of the music, and the music will take care of you."
