A Toronto, Ontario native, David Boyd Janes is being recognized as one of country music’s most promising new artists – and he owes everything he has accomplished so far to the decision he made two years ago of quitting his job to focus on music full time.
The valiant move paid off quickly; 2019 was a monstrous year for the budding country star.
“I truly feel like I’m stuck in the greatest dream I’ve ever had and I hope I never wake up,” says David. “I have no idea what’s around the corner but I’m really excited to greet it and embrace it all.”
He emerged out of 100 artists to win The Next Country Music Star contest at the Havelock Country Jamboree, and was named Artist of the Year at the Mississauga Music Awards. Another win at the Country Wild Music Festival in Cobourg, Ontario, earned David a trip to Nashville to record a song with Grammy-winner Jamie Tate. After winning the Boots & Hearts Emerging Artist Showcase, he not only got the opportunity to perform in front of 25,000 country fans on the final night of the festival, but with the win came a single release contract through Warner Music Canada.
The song - Couldn’t Hurt - was written with country superstar James Barker, fellow CMAOntario Award winner Aaron Alan and industry veteran Joe Ernewein.
2020 has also seen David earn his first CMAOntario Award nomination in the Rising Star category, and while plans for a robust tour had to be put on hold, next year is shaping up to be his busiest yet.
