Boots & Hearts 2015 Artist Preview: Wes Mack

Fresh off of 14 nights opening for Shania Twain on Rock This Country Tour from Vancouver to Montreal, Wes Mack is getting ready to turn himself into a household name in Canada.

Born in Calgary and now calling Vancouver home, Mack has been working hard to build his brand and earn fans. And he’s been doing a good job of it.

Smallville Wes Mack IcicleWhile his face may be recognizable from acting spots in TV shows including Smallville, Supernatural, Heartland, The 100 and more, and his acting credits are as recent as a turn on TV’s Motive in 2015, it looks like the focus has shifted, and music is where you’re most likely to find Wes Mack right now and for the foreseeable future.

His first single, Duet (featuring Carly McKillip of One More Girl) peaked at #9 on the Canadian country charts in 2013 and announced his arrival on the scene. The song and video earned Mack 3 Canadian Country Music Award nominations (Rising Star, CMT Video of the Year, Video Director of the Year) and it’s probably not a coincidence that he signed with Universal Music/Big Machine in 2014.

Wes Mack Before You Drive Me CrazyEarlier this year Before You Drive Me Crazy was released and climbed even higher on the charts, making it to #6 and offering a fantastic video, again directed by Mack himself. The song is strong and serves as a great intro for a young singer trying to break into a crowded market. It has also broken through the 500,000 stream mark on Spotify, proving that people are listening.

The 2nd single in 2015, The Way You Let Me Down, is currently on the charts, and playing at country radio. The question now becomes… when will we get a full album?

Mack lists acts Keith Urban, Eric Church and Dierks Bentley as influences, with Church’s Chief as one of his favourite albums. And listening to his music so far, that seems clear enough.

Note: It might just be us, but we see a lot of similarities between the growing career of Wes Mack and that of another Canadian – singer/actress MacKenzie Porter.

Wes Mack The Way You Let Me DownWith Shania’s first leg wrapped, it’s festival season for Mack with scheduled appearances at Craven Country Music Fest, the Cavendish Beach Music Festival, the Boots & Hearts Music Festival, and the Havelock Country Jamboree scheduled for July and August.

Bonus: Cavendish Beach Music Festival Preview: Artist Q&A featuring Kristian Bush, Jess Moskaluke, High Valley, Livy Jeanne, The Bros. Landreth

We can’t wait to see Wes Mack on the Boots & Hearts main stage on Sunday afternoon. With some great momentum building through the tour, the singles, and great engagement on social media, all signs point to an entertaining set.
