Welcome to the official website for Cape Breton, Nova Scotia based Country/Folk band Pretty Archie. Formed by childhood friends Brian Cathcart, Colin Gillis, Matt McNeil and Redmond MacDougall in June 2012, the guys released their debut full length album ‘Steel City’ in March 2013 and Pretty Archie has been busy playing across Canada since. ‘Steel City’ was nominated for Music Nova Scotia's 2013 Country/Bluegrass Album of the Year. Their second album, ‘North End Sky’, recorded at Soundpark Studios was nominated for ECMA's 'Country Recording of the Year'. 'North End Sky' was also nominated for Music Nova Scotia's Americana/Bluegrass Album of the Year (2015). Pretty Archie's upcoming release 'Sing Alongs & Love Songs' will be available on September 23rd 2016. Bringing on Jamie Foulds to produce this project, Pretty Archie continues to push the genre lines of Folk, Bluegrass, Country and Blues creating a uniquely Pretty Archie sound. The 10 song album is a collection of their best songwriting to date, addressing themes of love, loss, life and the forces that drive all three.
