On “Whiskey & Me”, the sophomore album from Canadian Country recording artist Justin Fancy, his passion for storytelling and his authentic East Coast charm are woven into every lyric and melody of its nine tracks. Tales of everyday experiences of life, love, and self-discovery permeate the album, illustrating his authentic approach to songwriting, which melds classic country songwriting with his distinctive contemporary sound. 

Fancy, who hails from the picturesque town of Conception Bay South, Newfoundland, used to worry he was putting too much of himself on the line in his songwriting but quickly realized that it’s the very essence of crafting a truly memorable song. “I came to realize that it’s not a flaw, but the magic ingredient to create a strong bond with my audience,” he explains. “The best country music is raw and emotional, and authenticity is its beating heart.”

“Whiskey & Me” is the follow-up to Fancy’s 2021 debut album “Sure Beats a Good Time”, which earned him two Music NL Awards in 2021 – “Country Artist of the Year” and “Rising Star of the Year,” as well as an East Coast Music Award and a Music NL award for “Fan’s Choice Entertainer of the Year” in 2022.

The latest single to be released from “Whiskey & Me” is the mid-tempo “Go Easy”, on which Fancy sets the tone of the album as he masterfully tells the story of an uncertain relationship and a bitter pill to swallow with an impending farewell. 

The album also includes several previously released singles, including “Lie”, on which Fancy confronts the dark spectre of a relationship’s dissolution. Driven by Justin’s irrefutable sincerity, the song is a powerful break-up anthem that heralds the end of an unhealthy relationship. “Lie” was produced by Fancy along with long-time collaborator Clint Curtis with two-time Grammy Award winner Greg Wells (Michael Bublé, Keith Urban, Carrie Underwood) serving as the Executive Producer on the track.

As a collection of songs, “Whiskey & Me” reflects Justin Fancy’s unwavering commitment to his craft, with every heartfelt lyric and every captivating melody shining through. His ability to capture raw emotions and translate them into songs that resonate with us all is a testament to his artistry and serves as a timeless reminder of the power of authenticity in storytelling through song.

In October, Justin will perform five shows across Newfoundland as direct support for Canadian Country superstar George Canyon.
