Canadian singer wins Unsigned Only music competition

Wes MackRising Canadian country artist Wes Mack was announced as the Grand Prize winner of the 2013 Unsigned Only Music Competition on Saturday, winning $10,000 and the opportunity to work with top record company professionals. He came in first over 9,000 entries from all over the world, representing ten genres of contemporary music. The competition is open to artists who are unsigned to a major record label. Mack is quickly taking the world of country music by storm. Influenced by artists as diverse as Hank Williams and The Beatles, he says, “I would always listen to those tapes with my parents on long road trips through the mountains. That’s where I learned the melodies and storytelling which influences me today.”

As an actor, Mack has built up an impressive resumé, including his recurring role in the CBC Western drama, Heartland, playing an up-and-coming country musician, as well as appearances in Smallville, The Vampire Diaries, Continuum, The Phantoms, A Dog Named Christmas and Magic Beyond Words: The JK Rowling Story. In the past year, Mack has been writing and recording his music in Vancouver and Nashville, and his first single Duet, featuring Carly McKillip of One More Girl, is currently charting on Canadian country radio.
