Jumping into the music scene with both cowboy-booted feet in 2009, Kevin found himself in Nashville within a year in recording sessions with some of the best musicians in North America. With a career as a Paramedic in his small hometown of Kentville, NS under his belt, Kevin has recently made the switch from full time paramedic to a full time musician. He has dedicated his life to helping others while always carrying a tremendous passion for music and life’s journey has brought Kevin to a place in time where music is taking a front seat.
Davison has had a whirlwind past few years, from performing at the late Const Wynn's funeral in Alberta for 8000+ first responders, the Prime Minister and a TV viewership of over 5 million; to hitting the Cavendish Beach Music Festival stage in Charlottetown, PEI, as 1 of 6 finalists for the Canadian Country Music Association's Discovery Atlantic Program.
His first single from his latest album, Only Human (released April 30th, 2015) was added to over 45 mainstream stations nationwide, and he has been featured on numerous radio stations, and televesion broadcasts - from Canada AM to CTV News and what seems like everything in between.
Jason Price is a performing singer/songwriter from Lawrencetown, Nova Scotia. Jason's "True Roots" brand of Country Music brings the flavour of current country with hints and honest tones of classic country music. Jason bought a second hand guitar in December of 2011 to teach his kids a life lesson that if you stick to what you start, you will get better, and it will reward you in many ways. In less than a year, Jason played his first live public performance, wrote his first song, performed in a sold out soft seater show put on by a local promoter, and made his television debut on CTV's Christmas Daddies.
In May of 2015, Jason recorded his debut CD, "Grit, Guts and Country Pride" in Nashville, TN. Bell Aliant identified Jason’s affable demeanor and he was asked to fill the role as a guest host for their 2015 Cavendish Beach Music Festival television special. In March 2016, Jason traveled to Kuwait to play for the Canadian and US Military Troops. Most recently, Jason released his debut video, “That Others May Live” to YouTube; within a one-week period, he had over 8000 views. Jason returned to the Cavendish Beach Music Festival in July 2016.
It is Jason's baritone voice, his easy going demeanour, and a confident stage presence that immediately captivates his audience.
