Colter Wall

As much of the world turns a romantic eye to the West—with television shows like Yellowstone driving popular culture toward a fictional depiction of life on the ranch—singer and songwriter Colter Wall continues to  deliver a realistic lens into the West and cowboying, with his distinguished, authentic voice.

Western Canadian songwriter Colter Wall is a weathered baritone that spins narratives on the stage. He sings traditionals known to most, historic reverie, and poignant originals, raising both goosebumps and beers throughout the evening. It's a nostalgic atmosphere and a simple yet colorful experience.

On his third album, Western Swing & Waltzes and Other Punchy Songs, Wall's 10-track ode to the themes and labors of western life, picks up where his last album left off, with a reverence for his "working cowboy kin."
