Corb Lund’s music reflects his Western heritage and rock and roll roots. His distinct blend of Americana-meets-roots-meets-alt-country has attracted accolades from critics in Canada and the U.S., who have called him “one of the best contemporary country songwriters” (Popmatters) and one of the “10 New Country Artists You Need to Know” (Rolling Stone Country).
Lund appears solo at this special showcase at Campus Jax, a true cabaret-style listening room, with full menu and free parking.
Lund grew up in a ranching and rodeo family in the foothills of Southern Alberta, then spent the early years of his career writing songs and playing bass for the indie rock band “the smalls.”
Lund’s latest, "Things That Can’t Be Undone" was produced by Grammy Award-nominated producer Dave Cobb (Jason Isbell, Sturgill Simpson, Chris Stapleton). His previous record, 2014’s Counterfeit Blues, was recorded at the legendary Sun Studio in Memphis and was the focus of a 2-hour CMT special. Previous to that, 2012’s Cabin Fever debuted at #1 on the Billboard Canadian Charts, and three of his albums are certified Gold.
“When you come from generations of ranchers and rodeo people, you can’t help but be influenced by the West,” says award-winning roots country singer Corb Lund.
Lund embraces his Western heritage through his music, touching on a range of cowboy themes past and present—from rough-and-tumble tales of lawless frontier saloons, to the somber realities of running a modern family ranch.
Hailing from the Rocky Mountains of Alberta, Canada, Lund is about as authentic as they come. He sings about the life that he knows and, as a result, his writing really resonates with rural audiences. Meanwhile, Lund’s traditional sound is music to classic country lovers’ ears, and has won over fans across the American West.
As Lund looks ahead to the summer of 2018, his sights are set on performing at rodeos, fairs, and Western events where audiences will not just enjoy the music, but truly connect with the lyrics.
With 9 studio albums under his belt, multiple CCMA, Juno, and international award nomination and wins, Lund is musical force to be reckoned with. His seventh album, “Cabin Fever” debuted at #1 on the Billboard Canadian Charts; he has 3 gold records; and his latest release, “Things That Can’t be Undone”, cemented his status as one of the best country singer/songwriters in the business.
Rolling Stone declared him one of the “10 New Country Artists You Need to Know” and NPR remarked, "The album is a high mark of a long career." Rolling Stone Country observed Things That Can’t Be Undone, “finds Lund flirting in fresh sonic waters, while still keeping his sardonic mix of eerie lyrics and deceptively joyful vamps well intact.”
