Bio

How does someone get from Fox Island River, Newfoundland (pop. 198) to Nashville? The best person
to ask is Jason Benoit, one of Canada’s fastest rising country stars. With his undeniable talent as a singer/songwriter, combined with his magnetic stage presence and devotion to his growing fan base, Benoit has already defied the odds.

Now, with three singles under his belt that have hit Billboard’s Canadian Country chart—including his current Top 10 smash “Gone Long Gone”—Benoit is set to release his full-length debut album in 2016 on JV Records/Sony Music Canada.

He first gained attention with his countrified version of “This Is What It Feels Like,” the Grammy-
nominated hit by Dutch DJ Armin van Buuren and Canadian vocalist Trevor Guthrie, included on the Sony Music compilation Country Heat 2014. Benoit and his Nashville-based producer Dave “Dwave” Thomson followed that up with a Top 30 single, “Crazy Kinda Love,” released in August 2014, and “Gone Long Gone” in March 2015.

The success of “Gone Long Gone” set the stage for Benoit’s widely hailed appearance at the 2015 Cavendish Beach Music Festival, which resulted in him being named the Canadian Country Music Association’s first-ever Discovery Atlantic Award winner. Along with that came a nomination as one of the CCMA’s 2015 Rising Stars, and a performance at the CCMA’s Awards gala in Halifax.

As Jason Benoit continues his path toward releasing his debut album, there are surely more defining moments such as these soon to come. It’s all about connecting with audiences, and the response at Cavendish—particularly the young females singing along with every line—showed that Benoit’s star is truly on the rise.
