The Canadian country scene continues to have a young wonder to watch in the form of Beamer Wigley. His newest single, “I Knew” – is co-written and under the management of award-winning legendary hit maker and GRAMMY Award-nominated Keith Follese (Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, Martina McBride, Randy Travis, Katy Perry, John Oates). The final cut also features musician Danny Rader (Keith Urban, Jason Aldean, LeAnn Rimes, Gretchen Wilson, Carolyn Dawn Johnson, Julianne Hough) on Dobro.  

Beamer raises eyebrows in the best way, and to say he’s ‘one to watch’ is an understatement.  The Kelowna-based teen wrote his first song at age seven; took First Place at the Vancouver P.N.E. ‘Star Showdown’ at nine; won the inaugural Penticton Youth Arts Award (25 and Under) at eleven; hit the charts at #74 for his first single to radio at age fifteen; and was the youngest ever to be signed to award-winning talent agency Invictus Entertainment Group and label Big Star Recordings.  He’s sponsored by Music Man / Ernie Ball guitars; has opened for George Canyon, Brett Kissel, Aaron Pritchett, Granger Smith, and Dwight Yoakam; was invited to participate in the CCMA’s Songwriters Series with Washboard Union, Kenny Hess, and Livy Jean; and is a member of the exclusive worldwide network The Brotherhood Of The Guitar. 

Recently, extensive time spent in Nashville has him under the management of prolific songwriters and industry leaders Keith Follese and his wife Adrienne (Martina McBride, Jo Dee Messina, Emerson Drive, Lady Antebellum); together they wrote Beamer’s 2018 single “Roller Coaster” — which boasts 450k+ streams and counting – as well as this year’s forthcoming sophomore EP, which includes “I Knew.”
