Cutting his teeth with home demos quietly recorded in his bedroom and uploaded online - in only 2 years passionate 21 year old Swift Current, Saskatchewan singer-songwriter, *Colter Wall* has already had a career that every musician dreams of.

Powerful storytelling backed by an unforgettable baritone voice (and obvious influences that include Townes Van Zandt, Bob Dylan, Kris Kristofferson, Waylon Jennings and countless others) have helped bring his kick drum-infused, outlaw anthems to the forefront of the country music
industry. A cross Canada tour with fellow Saskatchewan musician, Danny Olliver would soon lead to many other amazing and unbelievable opportunities.  Everything from having his music featured in a WWE Hell in a Cell promotional video to trending online across every major city in the United States, to star
studded fans that have included Gene Simmons & Shannon Tweed, Dog the Bounty Hunter, Larry the Cable Guy, Danny Masterson (That 70s Show, The Ranch) and WWE Superstars Brock Lesnar and Joe Hennig (Curtis Axel).

Represented by passionate promoter and manager, Mary Sparr the peak of Colter's success would come on February 11th, 2016 at the Village Studio in Los Angeles where he performed at a Grammy tribute to honour the career of prominent producer, Rick Rubin.

By this time, you would assume that the short career of *Colter Wall *really couldn't get any better.  As the old saying goes, it's never safe to assume and as today's news is any indication ...that really couldn't be more true. Known by many as the *Mother Church of Country Music* on Sunday, May 8th Colter Wall will become one of the few Saskatchewan artists to ever take the stage at the iconic Ryman Auditorium (known as Grand Ole Opry from 1943-1974) as he opens for legendary singer-songwriter Lucinda Williams.
