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.
