The Prairie States were born out of a desire for a modern touch on a classic design. Focused on cadence and rhythms of 60’s soul, 70’s rock and teeming with a new modern country vibe.
The band spent 2 years writing for their debut album, Lost In The Right Direction. Independently released last summer, these 8 undeniable tracks were nominated for the 2018 ACMA Album Of The Year. The band went on to win 2 ACMA Awards: Rising Star & Fan’s Choice. Their first single Tongue Tied spent 8 straight weeks on the Canadian Country charts.
Shortly after releasing the album, the band was announced as one of the Top 12 in the 2018 Project Wild Development Program. When the program wrapped up, The Prairie States were awarded 1st place and provided the foundation to keep their remarkable trajectory moving upward.
