Rory Gardiner Expecting A Busy Year!

Rory Gardiner is Gearing up for a Busy Year in 2016.

With a new year ahead of us, Rory Gardiner is coming off the release of his 3rd studio album, Roots. 2015 brought an Ontario Folk Music Award, as well as an International Songwriting Competition Award to Rory for his inspirational children’s song “Don’t Ever Change”. Rory Gardiner  also had the opportunity to bring his music to Nicaragua last March, where he was able to share the gift of music with the underprivileged children in the barrio. Last year he also had the opportunity to share the stage with his guitar idol, and favorite Aussie, Keith Urban. To see a clip of that show, click HERE.

Speaking of Aussies, 2016 kicked off with a bang, as Rory departed for a three week tour of Australia, taking the stage in several cities and country music festivals throughout the country along the way.

You can continue to hear Rory’s songs daily on North American television and commercials coast to coast staring actors such as Kevin Nealon, or pro athletes Chris Bosh & Arnold Palmer. New country music is expected to be released in the coming months!
