Having performed on stage since childhood, Jaydee was only 17 when he participated in Canadian Idol in 2007, reaching the finals and finishing in second place. You’ve heard the saying “second place works harder”? From there, the young singer's life was a whirlwind of high-profile shows and media attention. He opened for icons like Taylor Swift and Kenny Chesney and cracked the top 10 on the Canadian Albums Chart with his debut disc Cowboys and Cadillacs. That was a few albums ago and Jaydee and the Band continue to work hard, performing upbeat tunes with down home roots.
