ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A little boy sits at the top of the stairs. He is supposed to be in bed, but he can’t help but be drawn to the toe-tapping, lush sound of twin fiddles and a steel guitar coming from his parent’s party music down below. As the music lilts, a new love is born.

Fast forward 30 years and that little boy is now a grown man at the top of the Canadian country music scene. He has married, his wife also an accomplished vocalist. Together, they dream about playing the music they love and creating a new traditional sound of their own. The Western Swing Authority is the product of that very dream.

The Western Swing Authority is Shane Guse (fiddle, vocals), Stacey Lee Guse (vocals), Ed “Pee Wee Charles” Ringwald (steel guitar), Dan Howlett (fiddle, vocals), Paul “Chappy” Chapman (guitar and vocals), Matthew Lima (stand up bass) and Jimmy Boudreau (drums).

This stellar cast of musical peers and friends not only share a common love of Western Swing music, but together create a sound that fuses the old with the new, paying homage to the roots of traditional music in their own “new classic” original songs.

The “WSA” is a favourite with music lovers of all genres and ages. Their live shows are upbeat and fun, and the musicianship top-level.

Though individual members’ touring and recording credits are impressive, including names like Gordon Lightfoot and Dean Brody, it is the sum of the parts that is garnering attention and recognition worldwide.

“Love the WSA. Great accomplished players who play Western Swing like it should be played!” - Ray Benson/Asleep at the Wheel

“The Western Swing Authority is taking our music into the new millennium. With exceptional musicianship and knock your socks off vocals, they’re everything a swing band should be!” - Carolyn Martin/Western Swing Hall of Fame inductee

“As Merle Haggard brought the music of Bob Wills and Western Swing to a new generation of listeners, The Western Swing Authority is paying it forward not only by recording and performing these classics, but also writing new material proudly carrying on the style of traditional Western Swing music.” - Scott Wikle – My Kind of Country

“It’s impossible to listen to this record and not feel happy afterwards.” -Country Perspective

“A retro treat” - New Canadian Music

“Lush and fabulous. ” - Robert Oermann, Music Row Magazine
