Alan Doyle, who started his career with Canada’s iconic East Coast band, Great Big Sea, prior to going solo is a 12-time JUNO Award nominee and is one Canada’s most-beloved artists. He’s just announced that the release of a brand new EP, Rough Side Out will be available February 14. Fans can pre-order, pre-save and pre-add the album now and can download and listen to his new single “Paper In Fire” with your pre-order. If you’re attending one of his shows, you will receive his album with your ticket purchase.
Doyle has brought on two of Canada’s country music superstars to collaborate with him on two tracks. Rough Side Out features the single “We Don’t Wanna Go Home” with Dean Brody; as well three-time CCMA Female Artist of the Year winner Jess Moskaluke makes an appearance on the track “What the Whiskey Won’t Do.” Late last year, Doyle released the music video for “We Don’t Wanna Go Home,” which includes appearances from Brody, The Reklaws and others.

Hi all. I’m Nanci Dagg. I am from Winnipeg, Manitoba, and have lived my entire life here. There is nothing I like better than supporting local artists followed by supporting Canadian artists. Although I was a classic rock gal, my go to genre is country. Something about this music that just makes me feel great. I can be found at most country music concerts and shows (from someone’s house to really large venues) taking lots of pictures. Music and photography are two of my passions. Add to this mix, writing about artists, well let’s say, life doesn’t get better than this.
