Inspired by everyday life in rural Prince Edward Island, Nolan creates music that reflects the authentic country lifestyle in which he lives. Growing up on the family potato farm with the sounds of Merle Haggard, Keith Whitley, and George Strait on the radio, Nolan’s music nods to his early influences and pairs it with a modern country style reminiscent of Josh Turner, Chris Young, and Luke Combs.
Nolan’s early career has already drawn lots of attention to his name after launching his debut single Unbelievable. Unbelievable has over 20,000 streams and has radio plays all over Canada. It was the fifth most-downloaded country single on September 21/21, and he was the most active independent artist that week.
Nolan followed up the single with a six-song EP, Born and Raised, released June 3rd, 2022. These songs explode with energy and include some of Canada’s top-tier and CCMA award-winning musicians; Jason Barry, Ed “Peewee Charles” Ringwald, and Shane Guse.
On January 15th, the song Brought Up (off the Born and Raised EP) was crowned the #1 song on the Canadian Indie Country Countdown.
Music PEI recently announced the nominees for the 2023 Music PEI Awards. Nolan is a nominee for New Artist of the Year, Roots Recording of the Year, and Rock Recording of the Year.
Nolan relocated to Calgary, AB to further pursue and grow his brand as he makes new connections within the country music market in Western Canada.
