Mack broke into the country music scene in 2013 when he released his debut single “Duet” with no label or agent behind him. The song reached number 9 on the Billboard chart and the video (Directed by Mack) went on to earn two CCMA nominations for Video and Video Director of the Year. 2013 also saw Mack win the inaugural CCMA Discovery Program as well as the Unsigned Only Music Competition, besting some 10,000 artists from around the world.

Following these milestones, Mack signed a joint venture record deal with Universal Music Canada and Big Machine Records and spent much of 2014 writing and recording in Nashville. Armed with new music, Mack exploded outward in 2015: releasing his 3rd and 4th top 20 singles “Before You Drive Me Crazy” and “The Way You Let Me Down”, picking up his 6th CCMA nomination, and performing with Shania Twain across the nation on her “Rock This Country” farewell tour.

His debut album “Edge of the Storm” was released in 2015 debuting at number 4 on the iTunes chart.

He’s opened for Florida Georgia Line, Dierks Bentley and Miranda Lambert. Performed to ecstatic fans at the Craven, Cavendish and Havelock music festivals and took to the stage on the CCMA Awards show.

Between his time on numerous creative ventures, Mack has worked to give back to a number of institutions to which he owes much of his life. As a young child, Mack underwent heart surgery to correct a congenital heart defect. Now, as an adult, Mack has paired with the Cardiac Kids (in connection with the Sick Kids hospital in Toronto) and the Alberta Children’s Hospital in an effort to raise awareness and money for these organizations.
