Shawn Meehan, Colette Trudeau, Adam Reid, Ben Parker and Joe Fazio, together under the moniker ME AND MAE, have forged a reputation as the band to watch on the Canadian country music scene. It all started with the single “Love Me Leave Me Lonely”, which Meehan co-wrote with Carly Rae Jepsen, who at the time was his guitar student. The release of the band’s debut album Off the Rails (Cordova Bay Records) on May 13th, 2014 was quickly followed by a Nashville tour and a nomination for Top Country Best New Artist (2014) and winning the BC Country Music Awards – Ray McAuley Horizon Award (2014)!
Me and Mae has been touring extensively across Canada, playing festivals such as Craven Country Jamboree, Havelock Country Fest and working on new music with prominent producers to help take their sound to the next level.
Me and Mae has worked with Jeff Johnson (Wes Mack, One More Girl, The Chris Buck Band) and with Dan Swinimer of Manicdown Productions (Madeline Merlo, JoJo Mason, Tim Hicks) to help hone their new sound.
Me and Mae is ready to unleash their new sound with their new single, “Only Live Once” which puts a spotlight on Colette’s pop-country vocals and the band’s ability to create Zac Brown Band-esque harmonies.
With such a prolific partnership, momentum, talent and timing on their side,
Me and Mae is poised to win over legions of new fans looking for good, homegrown country music with a rock and roll sensibility.
