Things are moving along relatively quickly for Ponoka musician Jamie Woodfin who has just released a new country music single.
“It’s been a busy six months,” says Woodfin, who released a single back in April and which had some played on the radio.
Since the release of Just Feels Right, Woodfin has been busy with concerts opening up for well known musicians Corb Lund and Brett Kissel. The first single was picked up by SiriusXM satellite radio on CBC and has been played across Canada.
“The cool thing about Corb Lund for me is I listened to him when he was in the Smalls in high school,” says Woodfin.
To capitalize on that momentum, Woodfin released his second single, We Go Together on Monday, Oct. 19 to radios across the country. His goal is to hear his music on the radio and continue to see a growing fan base. Woodfin and the band recently played in Halifax, N.S. at a showcase called Diamonds in the Rough.
The showcase is held during the Canadian Country Music Association awards and is intended to give exposure to up-and-comers, explained Woodfin. The new single, which is seeing some strong interest, will also be available for download on iTunes for pre-order on Oct. 23 and for sale Oct. 27.
“It has a lot more attention than I anticipated,” said Woodfin.
“The next few weeks to a month is just promoting that single,” he added.
Woodfin initially got into music as a drummer when his father would host jam sessions with friends. That interest in music developed until he started to find an interest in country music and for Woodfin, the rest is history.
“It’s not going to slow down for us. It’s probably going to get much busier,” said Woodfin of his expectations of the near future.
