For Chris LeBlanc, it’s all about the music. It started with his first band practice when he was 3 years old in his hometown of Shediac, New Brunswick. Music was in the family, so there was no doubt that young Chris was destined for stardom.
Fast-forward a few years to 2007 in Calgary, Alberta when Chris released his debut album “Too Much Nothin’”. Shortly after, he won the 2008 Country 105/Lammles Rising Star, was nominated for Country Recording of The Year at the 2009 East Coast Music Awards, and was presented with the Dick Damron Award at the Dick Damron Tribute Show.
It doesn’t stop there! Chris recently got together with award winning singer, songwriter, producer and friend, Steve Fox to begin working on his second album. They wrote five incredible songs together, one of which was pitched and is being considered by super-group Rascal Flatts. (Come on boys, record that song!) Upon returning home from Nashville in October, Chris had finished recording six fresh new songs all produced by Steve.
Early 2012 will see the release of Chris LeBlanc’s sophomore album. It’ll be hard to not to be captivated by his smooth, deep voice and unique styling. Chris’s baritone voice is often compared to those of Paul Brandt, George Canyon, Chris Young and Josh Turner. You’ll be itching to hear more!
With his electric bass or guitar in hand, Chris LeBlanc always puts on an electrifying live show and has shared the stage with many great Canadian and U.S. artists ranging from Julian Austin to Charlie Pride.
