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, Lundis 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 2020, 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.
“Like Willie Nelson before them, they bring out the shitkickers and hipsters in equal measure,” writes Vegas Seven.
With 9 studio albums under his belt, multiple CCMA, Juno, and international award nomination and wins, Lund is a 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.”
