Colter Wall

from Swift Current, SK

One of the idiosyncrasies of the contemporary country music scene is the chasm that can exist between earning the critical acclaim of staunch traditionalists and attaining commercial success. Colter Wall seems on a path to conquer both, and he is doing it at the rather tender age of 24.  Musically, his deep voice bears more than a passing resemblance to the classic sound of Johnny Cash smoothed out with a little Don Williams. The songs definitely belong in the Cash camp, with some obvious Texas singer-songwriter touches thrown in for good measure. After deciding that a full-assed attempt at music beats a half-assed attempt at school, Wall quickly built a following through incessant touring and a thoroughly modern musician’s buffet of inclusion in TV and movie soundtracks and plentiful digital downloads on platforms like Spotify.  With a fan club that includes Steve Earle and Rick Rubin, Wall appears to be on a trajectory to becoming a classic southern singer-songwriter — both southern Saskatchewan and that mythical place that is “the south.”
