Emerson Drive showcases all of the attributes that have fueled the group's long, steady rise through the country ranks-lead singer Brad Mates' passionately expressive vocals; the extraordinary musicianship of band mates Danick Dupelle (guitar); Dale Wallace (keyboards); David Pichette (fiddle); and Mike Melancon (drums). The quintet's ability to choose first-rate songs, coupled with each member's own growth as songwriters; and their ability to capture in the studio the energy that has made them one of country music's must-see live acts has made country fans sit up and take notice.
In 2002, Emerson Drive released Countrified, upon which was the breakout, Grammy®-nominated No. 1 single "Moments." The song's success earned Emerson Drive the 2007 Group of the Year Award at the Canadian Country Music Awards.
It also set the stage for the group's 2009 album Believe, which was released on May 5, 2009.
