Willhorse is back! After a short hiatus, this is the first show that will once again feature the band's full lineup. Saskatchewan bred Jeremy Borschneck, Branden Winterholt and Nick Petrowich spent years of struggling in prairie dive bars with a story that reads just like the Sheepdogs’ – except for the Rolling Stone cover. After moving to the quiet mountain town of Golden and meeting Ontario native Todd Menzies, Willhorse was conceived. Immediately they hit the highway with their Southern Rock from the North. Their independently recorded debut album contains honest songs about love, loss and life on the road. Willhorse are no strangers to that road; with over 250 performances in three years, including 41 shows in 62 days across Canada in the summer of 2013. Willhorse showcased at NXNE 2013 & CMW 2014, and have graced the stages of Rifflandia, Khatsahlano, Keloha, Artswells, Golden Sound Festival & Jasper Folk Music Festival. It’s likely you’ll see Willhorse roll through your town in their thirty-six foot 1973 MCI tour bus. Their high energy live performance has brought them to share the stage with Said the Whale, Gay Nineties, Yukon Blonde, Leeroy Stagger, Elliot Brood & Shred Kelly. Creating a buzz in the Canadian music scene, Willhorse placed 5th in Vancouver’s Peak Performance Project and won K96 Kelowna’s Classic Rock Emerging Artist Program. Moving to Vancouver in the summer of 2014 and adding keyboarding & guitarist Jean-Paul Maurice, they have recently released their latest single Sure Shot as a lead up to their highly anticipated sophomore album.
