Today, Ontario-based Country artist Karli June releases the acoustic video for her infectious and upbeat song Big for A Small Town. Recorded at Revolution Recording Studio in Toronto and filmed by Tour Bus Entertainment, the track was recorded live off the floor and is the third acoustic video in a four-part series.
“Big For a Small Town” is a song I am so proud of and one I wrote on my own. It is a celebration of what living life is like in a small town. From running into everyone you know at the grocery store, to packing a hockey arena on a Friday night, this song paints the picture of the life that every small towner knows and loves,” said Karli.
The playful track is one that anyone living in a small town can relate to and was written by Karli and produced by superstar producer Karen KosKaren Kosowskiwski (Meghan Patrick, The Washboard Union, Tim Hicks, Mickey Guyton).
The video follows the February release of Karli’s debut EP “Where You Come From”, and for “Big for A Small Town” has rocketed across key editorial playlists on Spotify and Amazon Music and the EP has amassed over a quarter of a million streams across all DSP’s to date.
Born and raised on a farm in Listowel, Ontario, Karli June grew up singing in her church choir, at local fairs and singing competitions, before teaching herself guitar and making her initial songwriting attempts as a teenager. Inspired by Carrie Underwood, Shania Twain, and Kacey Musgraves, she recorded her first two singles in 2016 with CCMA Award-winning producer/guitarist Jason Barry, which led to June landing spots at marquee Canadian country music festivals such as Boots & Hearts, where she shared the stage with many Canadian and American country music luminaries.
Karli was selected to be a 2021 participant in the prestigious TD Incubator for Creative Entrepreneurship powered by SOCAN Foundation, was one of three finalists selected to represent Ontario in the 2021 nationwide Jim Beam Talent Search and opened for award-winning Country music group The Washboard Union at the Saskatchewan Jazz Festival.
