Still working on that hot first release.



and songwriter from Ajax, Ontario, Kris Barclay, is looking to be on the road
as much as possible this year, performing and promoting new music! Over the
past year, he has opened for some of Canada’s top Country artists and spent
time in Nashville developing he own music.

The Junior
“A” and University hockey player turned Country Music recording artist and
entertainer had a busy 2017, spending most of it on stage, as well as the
studio. Kris’s original song and acoustic video on YouTube “Good Wine, Old Vinyl & You” has gotten him traction with
writers both in Canada and in Nashville, where he makes several trips to pursue
his songwriting as well as his live performance. Most recently, Kris celebrated
a major label co-write with The James Barker Band called “Living The Dream”. Kris Barclay has appeared at venues such as The
Havelock Jamboree both performing and hosting, in Calgary during The Calgary
Stampede, as well as opened shows for The Road Hammers, Gord Bamford, Tim
Hicks, Dean Brody and more.

Kris is
always looking for a way to do something to push his limits or take his show to
a new level saying, “If you’re going to buy a ticket to see us play, I want you
to see the show, not just hear it”, and credits Garth Brooks and Eric Church
for their stage presence and energy as a lot of his inspiration. Kris Barclay
delivers a very engaging performance showing several sides to today’s country

easy to work with. He is always energetic and entertaining, and engages clients
easily. Our staff and patrons enjoy his shows!”

“Kris’s passionate, driven approach to making music
pushed us to do our best work to date!”

"Kris and his band put on a fantastic show for Caledon Day Gone
Country. Their energy was contagious and the set was a perfect fit to get the
crowd going before Chad Brownlee took the stage. Kris brought the friendly
country boy charm, taking the time to meet everyone who wanted to say hello,
pose for every picture, and sign every autograph after the show. Our organizers
loved working with him and the band."
-Heather Savage, Manager of Recreation,
Town of Caledon

“What else can we say, Kris Barclay is the next up and coming Canadian
Country Star!! Kris’ enthusiasm, professionalism, and charisma light up the

continues to perform any chance he gets, his goal is to continue recording and
take his original music to radio and all online platforms with the hopes of
joining a tour and really taking his show on the road! Look out for exciting
updates and news in 2018!
