Backyard Devils
MUSIC NB AWARDS 2011 - Emerging Artist of the Year, Country Album of the Year & Group Recording of the Year. Fancy isn't a word often heard in Eastern Canada and there is nothing fancy about The BackYard Devils. They're simply playing the music they love. Their debut album is a well blended mix of dirty country, rockabilly and bluegrass. The musicianship runs deep inthis band and although they're playing old styles they have managed to put their own twist to it.

When lead singer Erik Arsenault made a decision to move back to his hometown after a 4 year stay in the mountains of Alberta, big brother Remi flew west, and on the long drive home, the brothers laid down the foundation for The Backyard Devils. A dirty country and bluegrass band that would cater to young and old. From punk rockers to country & bluegrass fans. The brothers recruited Chris Belliveau, a talented and highly demanded guitar player with a love for roots music and Dillon Robicheau, a seasoned bluegrass mandolin and banjo player out of Nova Scotia to help create the vision. With a swinging guitar rhythm, doghouse bass slaps, smashing guitar solos and lightning quick banjo and mandolin lines, The BackYard Devils managed to hammer down their own sound in an old fashion style, just like the brothers had planned
