Based on the last name of two small-town Albertan brothers, Flaysher is a Canadian country duo with some grit in their blood harmonies. “Ride is proudly Canadian,” they say – “we weren’t afraid to let our Canadian roots show and I think that’s another reason this song is so close to our hearts. This song is a solo adventure. It’s a clear mind. It’s a soothing breeze. It’s a breath of fresh air.”
Growing up in a blue-collar family, they spent weekends and summers on their dad’s job sites learning to work hard for what they wanted. On the way to work, they’d be singing along to classics such as Bob Seger, Bruce Springsteen, The Eagles, and Tim McGraw in the back of an old grey GMC work truck. The music spoke to them and soon they felt a calling to tell their own stories through their own music. After they spent their teens in a rock band performing over 300 shows from weddings to bars and all sorts of parties, eventually the brothers found that country music was where they felt most at home. They dialed in and spent the majority of 2019 writing new songs with fellow artists and friends from all over Alberta and down south in Nashville. Working with Juno Award-winning producer, Matty McKay (Brett Kissel), Flaysher released their high-energy new single “Flat Broke Famous” independently in March of 2020.
