With Steel Wheel Stampede 2017 just a week away, Central Albertan sensation and outlaw country musician, Jamie Woodfin will be the Saturday Cabaret act on June 10, entertaining crowds.
This year has been the busiest for Woodfin, as he gets ready to play at a variety of rodeo circuit cabaret across the province.
“We have quite a few acts this summer, but we are really looking forward to play for the Stettler community,” Woodfin said. “From modern country, traditional music to some rock, we will be playing for a wide range of audience.”
Woodfin is scheduled to play on July 7 and 9 at the Calgary Stampede and on July 21 at the Westerner Days in Red Deer.
“I think we have grown over the past few months, and have been working hard, writing music and it is reflected in our performances,” Woodfin added.
With a new single “You Were That Night” to be released on the radio on June 8 and 9, Woodfin said the lyrics resonated with him, and he is hoping his fans would connect with the song too.
“We often get a lot of songs pitched to us, and this came from some Nashville writers and I immediately was able to picture it and relate to it,” Woodfin commented. “The song is about an easy-going story during summer, when a young couple meets and is unsure, which way their relationship is headed.”
According to Woodfin, collaborating with other artists has been of great help.
“We spent a weekend song writing with the local band Domino, which was amazing,” Woodfin said.
Project Wild was another great experience for him and his team, where they were exposed to different industry people, who helped them evaluate a lot of their goals and bits and pieces about their journey.
“As a musician or any artist, it is important to pause and reflect on all the good things too, and appreciate how far you have come,” Woodfin added. “Sometimes, we get so deep into our work that we forget our growth.”
For the Stettler show, Woodfin hopes to meet and greet his fans before going on stage, and will be giving away free tickets on https://www.facebook.com/Jamie-Woodfin-124729877598390/
