From Calgary, Alberta.
Daron Schofield and Dennis Hann, collectively known as TwoShine County. In 2016, the Alberta Country Music Association (ACMA) asked them to perform at the ACMA Gala Awards in recognition of their two ACMA nominations, “Rising Star” and “Group of the Year.” They were invited by the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS) to play at JunoFest during the 2016 JUNO Awards Week in Calgary and were invited to attend highly-visible red-carpet music industry events.
However, just prior to the JUNO Festivities, the Canadian Country Music Association (CCMA) announced that TwoShine County were one of the top six finalists in the National CCMA Discovery Program. Daron and Dennis were flown to Toronto to participate in Discovery Week and perform at a highly exclusive industry-only showcase attended by top-level music industry executives.
They performed at the CCMAs in Edmonton (2014) and performed at two prestigious CCMA Songwriter Showcases at the CCMAs in Halifax (2015).
The Calgary-based duo has released four singles to date: “Make It With You”, “Whole Lotta Love”, “Love This Song”, and “Love on Fire”. They have completed two cross Canada Radio Tours, and released a six-track “Whole Lotta Love” E.P., in December 2015.
They released their first full-length album titled, “Mixtape” on November 11, 2016 and have released a new single to radio – the catchy song titled, “Track 9”.
