Boots & Hearts + SiriusXM 2016 Emerging Artist Finalists Announced!

It’s become a big part of Boots and Hearts, and The Emerging Artist Showcase, presented by SiriusXM, is now ready for your votes! Boots and Hearts put out the call in March and many talented artists answered. And now, the powers that be have narrowed your choices down to 8 talented acts and they’re all vying for the amazing first place prize.

What’s up for grabs? The winning act will play the main stage on the final day of the festival (opening for Chase Rice), they’ll be awarded a single release from Universal Music Canada, a week in Nashville (including flight, hotel, professional photo shoot, and media training), a Gibson guitar, $500 spending cash, and they’ll get a new custom designed website from Puncture Design.

In random order here are your finalists!

Jess and Tay
Jessie Bower and Taylor Adams make up the Toronto-based duo and they’ve got harmonies on their side.

Kelsi Mayne
Kelsi calls Windsor home and you may have seen her before if you’re an Eric Ethridge fan. The two have covered Home Alone Tonight by Luke Bryan and Karen Fairchild. Kelsi’s cover of Burning House is also right on the money.

Robyn Ottolini
An Uxbridge girl, Robyn lists Kacey Musgraves and Lennon & Maisy as influences. Picking Thomas Rhett’s Die A Happy Man may not have been a predictable choice, but it’s working for us!

Ryan Langdon
Singer/songwriter, Ryan Langdon is from Niagara Falls and his entry song The Morning, is an original.

Jesse Gold
Jesse calls Toronto home and in addition to having a great voice, he’s a pretty great guitar player too!

Shylo Sharity
From Vancouver, Shylo’s been performing since the age of 5 and her submission of Brandi Carlile’s The Story helped win her a spot in the top 8.

Vanessa Marie Carter
Last but certainly not least is Oakville’s Vanessa Marie Carter. We recently saw her perform at The Stampede Ranch and we like her odds.

The competition is open and they’ll need your votes to win the prize of their dreams. Listen to the entries and then VOTE!
