VANCOUVER CANUCKS LOSS IS COUNTRY MUSIC’S GAIN With a Best New Artist Showcase Award from the Canadian Country Music Conference and a 2010 CCMA Rising Star nomination under his belt, Chad Brownlee is quickly earning accolades across Canada’s country music scene. The B.C. native who was a Vancouver Canucks sixth round draft pick, has long had a dual passion for both music and hockey. A career in music was something he never imagined he could pursue, but after a year of injuries, Brownlee found himself at a career crossroads. Driven to follow his musical ambitions the singer officially gave up his jersey and has never looked back. Brownlee’s self-titled debut album was released in 2010. Currently, his single “Day After You” has reached number 12 on the Chevy Cross Canada Countdown and has reached Top 20 on Canadian Country radio. The album’s first hit single “The Best That I Can (Superhero)”, a song Brownlee co-wrote, reached the top 20 and “Hood Of My Car” peaked at number 11 and was chosen as the iTunes pick of the week during the Canadian Country Music Awards week. From self-taught musician to up and coming star, Brownlee recently filmed a TV Special for CMT titled ‘CMT 4 Tracks.’ The 30 minute primetime show highlights Brownlee’s strong vocals and skills as a songwriter.

His number one support system over the years has been his parents. Jayme Knyx fell in love with country music at an early age. But sparking the dream was country legend George Strait. When Knyx was only six years old his mother gave him his first guitar. His family has had a heavy influence on his music. From his Grandpa Bob, who played and sang for the Country Playboy's. To his mother, who sang for many years in the Kelowna night club scene. Throughout the early years Jayme loved to sing along side classmates in the school choir. His music teacher Robin Jarman said, "Knyx always had an ear for music." Knyx also enjoyed playing in a brass band for few years. His instrument of choice was the "grand daddy" tuba. Knyx recalls not even being able to see because of its massive size. "Gosh, that thing was heavy." When he was 15 years old his mother dared him to enter a singing contest it became apparent Knyx loved to sing. After winning many singing contests, Knyx decided to pursue a musical career. For the past couple years Knyx has started to embark on his true passion which is songwriting and creating music. In the spring of 2008, an old minor hockey team mate Jordan Hoffart sent Jayme an email about a songwriting contest. Well, Knyx just had his song chosen to be recorded for the up coming documentary movie dedicated to the memory of Tammy Ellis.
