Canadian born and bred Aaron Pritchett, has proven himself to be one of the hardest working and sought after artists in the business. With numerous top hits, music videos, tours with Alan Jackson, Toby Keith and Brooks & Dunn, Aaron has gained a significant following across Canada. Over his career he has earned many accolades and awards, including a CCMA for Independent Male Artist of the Year and Songwriter of the Year in 2007 for the anthem, "Hold My Beer". His passion and intensity on stage coupled with his unwavering dedication to fans sets him apart from other acts and has helped solidify his success.
Growing up in small-town Northern BC, Aaron drew his earliest musical influences from 80's Rock, but the transition to country music came naturally, "It was based on being able to relate to the stories that country songs told. Those stories were a lot like mine. I was going fishing, camping, and riding buses to hockey tournaments in even smaller towns than my own, life was a lot more country than rock and roll. That down-home feel that resonated with me is what I strive to convey in my music today."
Still there is no doubt that his 80's rock roots have had a major influence on Aarons performances. All that head banging he did as a kid shines through when he whips a stadium full of chanting fans into a frenzy while hammering out "Hold My Beer" or "Lets Get Rowdy."
After spending over a decade at the forefront of the Canadian country music scene, Aaron is just as driven, and still just as excited for the future as he was when he was just starting out. With a brand new project in the works and his most recent single, "Suntan City", climbing the charts, Pritchett has a lot to be excited about. With one of the most high energy and dynamic live shows in the business, Aaron continues to wow his audiences all across the country. His fans describe him as humble, thoughtful and one of the nicest guys around and Aaron thanks them all personally via social media for their support. "I love being able to have that one on one connection with my fans", says Pritchett. "I can't say enough how fortunate and honored I am to be a part of country music in Canada."
Glass Tiger is a Canadian rock band formed in 1983, in Newmarket, Ontario.
Originally named 'Tokyo', the band produced several hit singles in Canada and placed two songs on Billboard magazine's top 10: "Don't Forget Me (When I'm Gone)" and "Someday," both of which came from their debut album, The Thin Red Line (1986), produced by Jim Vallance. Glass Tiger won three Juno Awards in 1986 and two more in 1987. They were also nominated for a Grammy Award in 1987.
After their third album Simple Mission and a brief Canadian tour in early 1993, the band went on a lengthy hiatus. Lead singer Alan Frew released two solo albums before the band reformed and began touring again around 2003. On November 6th, 2004 Glass Tiger hosted a Saturday night retro show on CIQB-FM in Barrie, Ontario under the direction of station program director Darren Stevens. In 2005 the band released a new DVD collection No Turning Back. On June 23, 2005, they appeared on the NBC television show Hit Me Baby One More Time, performing their classic hit "Don't Forget Me (When I'm Gone)" and covering "Everything You Want" (originally recorded by Vertical Horizon). Although they lost the audience voting to Thelma Houston, Glass Tiger were judged the winners by online voters. In a mid-2006 interview on Entertainment Tonight Canada, Glass Tiger hinted they were back in the studio to record new material. Meanwhile, the band continues to tour throughout Canada. A new DVD titled "Glass Tiger Live in Concert" featuring the band in concert from the 1980s was also released in 2006.
Canadian New Wave band formed in 1979 and based in Burlington, Ontario.
