INVICTUS ENTERTAINMENT GROUP SIGNS BLACK MOUNTAIN WHISKEY REBELLION FOR EXCLUSIVE AGENCY REPRESENTATION IN CANADA
May 22, 2019
TORONTO, ON - Invictus Entertainment Group is thrilled to announce the addition of Black Mountain Whiskey Rebellion to its agency roster in Canada. Black Mountain Whiskey Rebellion features a collective of talented musicians (Greg Carroll, Erik Dylan, Corbett Frasz and Mitch Merrett), bringing multiple years of touring experience, studio time and multi-faceted musicianship to the mix of an already outstanding agency roster.
Invictus CEO Jim Cressman says, “There’s always a market for a kick ass band, with a distinctive brand who sells beer, and raises the energy in any room they grace.”
Banding together to create a sonic awakening that walks the line of boundless melodic prowess and raw, unapologetic truths, BMWR have merged a fascination with the history of the North American moonshiner and a love of Southern power chord guitar rock into a collection of fictional smoky backwoods tales, resulting in an album that is introspective and speaks from the soul; producing tracks that are dark and brooding complete with lyrics abundant in grit and uncompromised delivery.The debut single ‘Holy Smoke’ quickly garnered the attention of Rolling Stone Country, who included the group in their July 2018 list of “10 New Country Artists You Need To Know”. Writer Jim Beaugez describes
the track as “Merrett’s distorted guitar snarls underneath a chicken-pickin’ country hook, kicking off a tale told through lyrical double- entendre and a fist-pumping chorus before closing with a full gospel revival coda”, dubbing the collective “A Canadian group of rootsy outlaws”. He goes on to detail the overall sound as “a fleet of rumbling IROC-Zs at Talladega revved-up on leaded gasoline and ready to chase the checkered flag.”
BMWR’s 4 singles released to the Digital Service Providers over the past 12 months have combined for over 2.8 million streams to date, with 'Holy Smoke’ having reached 1.1 Million streams alone on Spotify. No small feat given the songs have never been released to radio, with the collective instead relying on a grassroots approach to sharing new music and gaining fans. Combining their love of motorcycles, music, tattoos and more, with numerous Gold-certified singles, song writing credits and industry awards between the members, these long-time musical friends have finally come together to collaborate and deliver the indulgent yet timeless sound that is the Black Mountain Whiskey Rebellion.
