About the artist
“Nolan Compton is a country singer-songwriter from PEI but is now based in Calgary, AB. Nolan has years of experience performing as a solo, duo, and full-band act in venues throughout the Maritimes.”
Inspired by everyday life in rural Prince Edward Island, Nolan creates music that reflects the authentic country lifestyle in which he lives. Growing up on the family potato farm with the sounds of Merle Haggard, Keith Whitley, and George Strait on the radio, Nolan’s music nods to his early influences and pairs it with a modern country style reminiscent of Josh Turner, Trace Adkins, and Luke Combs. Nolan’s early career has already drawn lots of attention to his name after launching his debut single Unbelievable. "Unbelievable" has listeners all over the globe, has radio plays all over Canada, was the fifth most-downloaded country single on September 21/21, and he was the most active independent artist during that week. On January 28th, 2022, Nolan released his second single "Back To Sleep". This single also had great success with radio, being played all over Canada and the UK. Back to Sleep can also be heard in the opening scene of season two, episode one, on the hit Canadian TV show "The Strays''. Nolan followed up the singles with a six-song EP, Born and Raised, released on June 3rd, 2022. These songs explode with energy and include some of Canada’s top-tier and CCMA award-winning musicians; Jason Barry, Ed “Peewee Charles” Ringwald, and Shane Guse. Listening to these tracks invites you to see the electrifying, devoting, and intrepid world through Nolan's eyes.
