“Whitewater”, whose name is influenced by their Maritime roots, have infused the Country Rock and Americana music genres to create their trademark sound. Journeyman musicians’ Brad White, Ryan Massey, Mike Frontin, Kevin Golding and Brad Trecartin are the quintessential energy of “Whitewater”.
New Brunswick based “Whitewater Band”, whose music is influenced by their Maritime roots, have released their latest song “The Shores of Home”. This song highlights the mass exodus of workers from Atlantic Canada that have migrated to the Alberta oil fields to find work over the past 5 years. Families from Atlantic Canada that are commuting back and forth to Alberta for work …4000 miles away. There is hardly a person in New Brunswick that has not been affected by family members working or commuting in Alberta.
Band Members include: Brad White; Ryan Massey; Mike Frontin; Kevin “Beat” Golding & Bradford Trecartin. Also featured on the recording is Paul Owen.
The “Whitewater Band” released their first full length album “Many Roads” in 2013, with the single “Unpredictable” receiving radio play across Canada. Included on the “Many Roads” album were Jamie Williams, Matt O’Connor (now living in Alberta), Carol Perry and award winning keyboardist Dan Cutrona. Several songs from Many Roads were featured in the movie “The Divorce” by Let Em Laugh productions. The band received a Music NB nomination for the album.
The “Shores of Home” was produced and engineered by multiple award-winning producer Paul Milner (JUNOS, SOCAN & ECMA’s).The vibe on the “Shores of Home” was influenced by Shell Lane Studios, with its seaside setting and turn of the century farmhouse, located in Prince Edward Island, Canada.

Places to check out the saint John music scene.
Saint Johns Hottest bands managed by Tish Tash Byrne, Saint John biggest fan of local live music.
Giraffe Cycle is a great site that shows off music from the Saint John music scene.
www.CustomUSBSales.com is delivering a service where bands can distribute music on USB Flash drive or webkey as outlined in the articles ” weirdest-ways-to-distribute-music” by wired magazine and “think-outside-the-cd-3-simple-steps-to-releasing-your-album-on-usb” by Sonic Bids. It’s a bit more expensive than the traditional CD however you can put a lot more content on a USB including multiple CD’s, video, interviews, backstage passes, customized EPK’s, promo handouts or greatest hits compilations etc.Up to 64GB memory. It’s a great feature for seasoned bands that have and want to deliver a lot of content.
Custom USB Sales also delivers an option to use “Connect to Web” products which are similar to USB’s however it drives the user to a secure web page to view the content. There is no memory built into the unit. These are even more cost effective than USB and are close in pricing to a traditional CD.Here’s a video about the connect to web product.
ECMA and Juno Award winning producer Paul Milner of Shell Lane Studios in PEI says ” This is a strong way for musicians to deliver content to their fan base, people still want to have something in hand rather than get lost in the sea of content on the internet”. Each USB has a unique identifier and can be “locked” down so no copying or printing The USB can be built into the album cover so you still get the traditional way of showing off an album cover. Whitewater is thinking of releasing the upcoming song “shores of home” on CD. See example below.
