If you were to tell David Boyd Janes a year ago that he would be playing one of the largest country music festivals in Canada, he wouldn’t have believed it. Now, the “Thoughts Become Things” music sensation is earning some high rankings in the country music world. David’s recent single “Whiskey Won’t” is topping the charts holding the fourth #1 Position in a row in the Indie Top 20.
Born and raised in Toronto, Ontario, David Boyd Janes returned to the music scene in September 2017. After several years hiatus from music and shortly after heartbreak two years ago – David found himself with a newfound strength to pursue his dream of having a career in music again.
His first single “Summertime Feeling” broke the Top 100 on Canadian Country Radio in only its first 3 weeks of being released. Both “I Ain’t Sticking Around” and “Whiskey Won’t” Made it to #1 on True North Country Top 20 countdown so far in 2019.
DBJ is the recent winner of The Next Country Music Star competition and will be featured in Havelock’s Country Jamboree 30th Anniversary Celebration. He recently played the Bread and Honey Festival in Mississauga where David drew in a record-breaking crowd.
