It’s been a busy year for Flat Lake, Alberta’s Brett Kissel, who released his major label debut album Started With A Song, on October 1. The Edmonton Journal called it, “…a whambam collection of 10 sweeping love songs and lively party anthems that leave you glossy-eyed and daydream drunk … His songs like to play hooky with pop punches and rock growls, making for a crossgenre record that will surely befriend a very large audience.”
The album’s first single and title track became the highest charting debut single by a Canadian artist at Canadian country radio since 2000. It was the most played Canadian single for six weeks this summer. The music video for “Started With A Song” reached No. 1 on the CMT Top 20 Countdown and stayed at the top for three straight weeks.
His second single, “Raise Your Glass,” is already Top 10 on the Canadian Country radio charts and as of last week was the most played country song by a Canadian artist.
