Care to introduce yourself to our readers?
Hi everyone, my name is Cory Gallant and I am from Prince Edward Island.
Tell us a bit about your music and writing style.
I grew up listening to Waylon Jennings, George Jones, and Merle Haggard but really starting working on my singing and entertaining craft throughout the 90s, listening to guys like George Strait, Travis Tritt, and Tim McGraw. The songwriting started for me later on in life, but I’d like to think of it as a more traditional kind of style, with a modern twist to it as well.
Do you have any upcoming shows? For someone who has yet to see you live, how would you explain your live performance?
Unfortunately due to Covid 19, all dates this summer have been canceled. There were two international tours booked, but with the way this pandemic has affected the world, it is necessary to put those on hold.
If you were asked to suggest only one of your songs for someone to hear, which would it be?
Easily Addicted, which was released to Radio nationwide about a month ago. Really has that modern but 90s feel to it like I was talking about before.
Canadian Beats is all about Canadian music, so who are your current favourite Canadian bands / artists?
I really enjoy Dean Brody’s music, I feel he is a great representative for Canadian Country Music, also Charlie Major, Paul Brandt, Blue Rodeo which were all in my vehicle or in my stereo growing up.
I’m Jenna, and I am the founder and editor of Canadian Beats. I have had a strong love for Canadian music, which started many years ago. I have a passion for promoting these talented Canadian bands and artists, and that’s how Canadian Beats came to be. I am so proud of what it has become over the last few years, with many talented music lovers and writers coming together to spread the word of Canada’s music.
