Nice Horse is what happens when FOUR bold, brilliant and badass women get together to raise a little hell—and play a little music at the same time.

Nice Horse is what happens when four bold, brilliant and badass women get together to raise a little hell—and play a little music at the same time. Katie Rox (acoustic guitar/banjo/vocals), Brandi Sidoryk (bass/vocals), Tara McLeod (guitar), and Krista Wodelet (drums/vocals) are out to turn the tables on the country music world and show the guys that they can rock—and party—just as hard. Sure, there are plenty of strong female country artists in Daisy Dukes out there, but try to name another self-contained unit that plays their own instruments and writes songs as potent as “Six String Outlaw”, the band’s roof- raising single “Pony Up”, and the new feminist anthem “Mansplainin’”.

There’s plenty of more proof on Nice Horse’s aptly titled full-length debut album, There Goes The Neighborhood (emphasis on the neigh!), produced by Jeff Dalziel (The Washboard Union, Brett Kissel), along with the legendary Bob Rock (Metallica, Motley Crue) on a couple of tracks. The band won the 2018 YYC Music Award for Country Recording of the Year, as well as “Group of the Year” and “Video of the Year” (for “Mansplainin’”) at the 2019 Alberta Country Music Awards (ACMAs). In 2018, Nice Horse was also nominated for their first-ever Canadian Country Music Award (CCMA).

Nice Horse’s first major tour was as direct support for Canadian icon Tom Cochrane, and they’ve since toured with other industry heavyweights including Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and The Washboard Union. Additional highlights include major festivals such as Big Valley Jamboree, the Calgary Stampede, and Boots & Hearts – always showcasing their signature high-energy live show.

The bottom line? If you’re looking for a good time, then Nice Horse is more than willing to take you along for the ride!
