CC and High Ryder

Edmonton, Alberta's CC AND HIGH RYDER are living proof that raw talent, ambition and honesty can still prevail in an ailing music industry. What else would explain a blossoming career that has found over 1000 shows touring across North America, opening for such acts as Emerson Drive, Gord Bamford, Shane Yellowbird, and their debut album HERE I AM hitting the radio charts.

By aligning their unwavering dedication to the do-it-yourself work ethic with a signature sound, singer/guitarist Clarence Patenaude (CC), Fiddle player Garry Lee, bassist Mat Ryder, drummer Jason Berg, keyboardist Jared Sowan have helped to define the landscape of today’s Country Western music scene. The backbone of their work? Stylistically eclectic songs—suggesting a range of influences from Merle Haggard to Led Zepplin you won't find a more interactive, entertaining live show around.
