George Canyon rose to becoming one of Canada’s hottest Country Music stars in the early 2000’s and has won countless accolades and awards, including Juno Awards, CCMA Awards, and ECMA Awards to name a few. He has been inducted into the Nova Scotia Country Music Hall of Fame, recorded 12 albums, and was recently presented a certified Platinum Award for his debut album ‘One Good Friend’. With country hits like Just Like You, I Believe in Angels, Drinkin’ Thinkin’, Daughters of the Sun, I Got This, I Want You To Live, Slow Dance and many more.

Canyon is so much more than an award-winning musical talent. Helping others has always been a huge priority for him, particularly for children with Diabetes and his work as spokesperson for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). He was also recognized by the Canadian Country Music Association with the Humanitarian Award in recognition of his work with JDRF and the Canadian military.

Among his many identities, Canyon is also a proud Canadian and huge hockey fan, and roots for his team, the Calgary Flames, for which he just completed his 10th season singing the national anthem during the home games). With all that he does, one might think that Canyon doesn’t often have time for anything else, but they would be so very wrong. When asked he will happily admit that being a husband and dad is still his number one job.

Canyon’s love of painting started when he was young but he set the brushes aside for his music career until recently when he was on tour and picked up the brushes once again to reunite his love of art and discovered how much he loved and  He is looking forward to the reveal of his art to everyone at the Pure West Auction.
