Brett Kissel is ready to usher in a new wave of country music. Warner Music Canada is pleased to announce the signing of the 22-year-old singer-songwriter from Flat Lake, Alberta, to a recording deal. Brett is putting the finishing touches on his major label debut album, Started With A Song, due for release this fall.

Brettâs debut single, the title track from the album (30-second clip attached), will be serviced to radio on June 17 and will be available at all digital retailers on June 18. A music video is being shot in Nashville this weekend, to be directed by 2x-Juno and 4x-Canadian Country Music Association Award winner Margaret Malandruccolo. Brett will begin an extensive coast-to-coast Canadian promotional tour next week.

âWhen Brett came and sang a few songs in my office, I was immediately knocked out,â says Steve Kane, President of Warner Music Canada. âHeâs an exciting new voice in country music who has an encyclopedic knowledge and respect for the genreâs traditions. Youâll hear for yourself, this cowboy can sing.â

"I am so happy to be part of the Warner family, and I canât wait to play my new music for my fans across Canada and around the world,â says Kissel. âI am so thankful for all the support I had from my family and friends who have all helped me get to this level."

Brett Kissel has released two independent albums, has sold out countless headlining shows through relentless touring, and has earned two CCMA nominations, becoming its youngest nominee ever.

Co-produced by Kissel with Ted Hewitt (Rodney Atkins) and CCMA Award-winner Bart McKay, the forthcoming album Started With A Song is an exhilarating collection of music: each song a slice of real-life sentiment; emotional touchstones that run the gamut of highs and lows and explore such subjects as deep love, trying moments and poignant reflection, measured out by hell-raising good times and a sense that something special is happening here with Brett Kissel.
