Blackie and The Rodeo Kings
Blackie, originally formed in 1996, when Colin Linden, Stephen Fearing, and Tom Wilson came together to record what was supposed to be a one-off tribute album to the great Canadian songwriter Willie P. Bennett. At the time, all three members were deeply committed to burgeoning solo careers that they had no intentions of putting on hold, and had no plans to turn Blackie into an ongoing concern.
Now 25 years later, Blackie and the Rodeo Kings have organically evolved into one of the finest roots-oriented band in North America. Blackie and the Rodeo Kings remains one of Canada’s greatest musical treasures.
The band is pleased to announce that they have signed a recording deal with Warner Music Canada to release their 10th album “King of This Town”. “After 25 years of making music as a band, it is so cool to be working with Warner Music. We think this is the beginning of a beautiful relationship,” says Tom, Stephen and Colin.
