The Road Hammers

The Road Hammers are a five piece no-nonsense, kick-ass mix of Country, Southern Rock and Blues singing songs of maverick culture and the open road.

The band is the brainchild of Jason McCoy, the 2004 Canadian Country Music Association Male Vocalist of The Year. The idea was born out of Jason’s desire to develop a new project where he could sing a style of music which formed him as an artist, while paying tribute to the men and women who call the highways of the world their home.

Jason found kindred spirits in Alberta’s Clayton Bellamy, a rocker who grew up in a trucking family and whose rough n’ ready vocals provide the soulful fuel that kicks the Hammers into overdrive and Chris Byrne whose smooth high harmonies and solid bass lines are both the foundation and finishing touches which define the distinctive sound that is The Road Hammers.

Doc Walker
With over 20 Top 10 singles, Doc Walker is one of the most recognized Canadian country acts of the past two decades. The group has received multiple Canadian Country Music Awards, including Fans‟ Choice, Group or Duo of the Year, CMT Video of the Year, Single of the Year, and Country Music Program or Special of the Year. In addition, Doc Walker has been
nominated for several JUNO Awards for Country Album of the Year, including a win in 2009 for the album Beautiful Life.

Even with several mantelpieces worth of hardware to their credit, and a growing international profile that has resulted in three Australian tours, the band refuses to rest on past laurels. “After a while the „tried and true‟ becomes „been there, done that,‟” guitarist Dave Wasyliw says. “With every new album we evolve to some degree. I think it‟s exciting to go to work and not know what‟s going to happen next.”

Black Jack Billy
Once upon a time them boys started jammin’ and God looked down and said, ‘It is good.’
