Me And Mae have a bucket full of catchy songs that you’ll find your­self singing along to as if you’ve heard them a mil­lion times before.” A lit­tle serendip­ity mixed with an abun­dance of tal­ent has played a pro­foundly sig­nif­i­cant role in the rapid rise of Canada’s, ME AND MAE!Shawn Mee­han, Ash­ley Weir, Adam Reid, Ben Parker and Cameron Bel­ter, together under the moniker ME AND MAE, have forged a rep­u­ta­tion as the band to watch on the Cana­dian coun­try music scene. The sin­gle, “Love Me Leave Me Lonely,” which Mee­han co-wrote with Carly Rae Jepsen, opened the barn doors for the band and they haven’t closed since.

The release of the debut album Off The Rails (Cor­dova Bay Records) on May 13th, 2014 was quickly fol­lowed by a Nashville tour and a nom­i­na­tion for Top Coun­try Best New Artist (2014) and win­ning the BC Coun­try Music Awards — Ray McAuley Hori­zon Award (2014). “Their vocal excite­ment and har­monies are top notch and they can deliver it live as well. There is some musi­cian­ship here that is caus­ing atten­tion in the indus­try to say the least.” Me and Mae has been tour­ing exten­sively across Canada, play­ing fes­ti­vals such as Sun­fest, Rock­ing River Fest, Craven Coun­try Jam­boree, Have­lock Coun­try Fest while writ­ing new music with promi­nent pro­duc­ers to help take their sound to the next level. Work­ing with the likes of Jeff John­son (Wes Mack, One More Girl, The Chris Buck Band) and Dan Swin­imer of Man­ic­down Pro­duc­tions (Made­line Merlo, JoJo Mason, Tim Hicks),Me And Mae con­tinue to evolve as a force to watch.Their lat­est sin­gle, “Feel Good Feelin’” puts a spot­light on Shawn and Ashley’s pop-country vocals and the band’s abil­ity to cre­ate Zac Brown Band-esque har­monies. With such a pro­lific part­ner­ship, momen­tum, tal­ent and tim­ing on their side,Me And Mae is poised to win over legions of new fans. Home­grown coun­try music with a rock and roll sensibility.
