CHARLOTTETOWN - ­The PEI Brewing Company will be hosting the “Young Guns Tour” featuring Brett Kissel & One More Girl when they make a tour stop in the brewery’s Events Space on March 6, 2014.

Hot off their album releases, Brett Kissel & One More Girl come to the Island at the beginning of their Canadian tour with amazing talent, enthusiasm and a new take on Canadian country music.

Joining Brett Kissel & One More Girl will be three special guests who will be announced later. Tickets for the March 6 show go on sale Friday, Dec. 20, at 10 a.m. at peibrewingcompany.com.

When you come from a place called Flat Lake, Alta., it’s pretty tough to get noticed. For Brett Kissel, it’s pretty tough to be ignored. The 23-year-old singer/songwriter has released two independent albums, sold out countless shows, and earned two Canadian Country Music Association Award nominations, becoming its youngest nominee ever.

Kissel is now ready to release his major label debut album through Warner Music Canada, “Started With a Song”. But even before the album’s release, Kissel has already made radio history. With more than 93 per cent of Canadian Country stations adding the first single “Started With a Song,” the track eclipsed the record for most adds at Canadian Country radio in one week, a record previously held by Taylor Swift.

They’re called One More Girl. Except, actually, they’re two. It’s the contradictory sort of thing you get from this pair ­- that ineffably paradoxical, off-balance, “Huh?” factor. It’s what they do. One More Girl, West Coast Canadian sisters Britt and Carly McKillip, are show biz vets with fistfuls of dazzling credits. They’ve shared stages with the likes of Lady Antebellum, Keith Urban and Toby Keith, and performed with Jason Aldean’s Night Train tour. They’ve also performed before thousands at major events like the Cavendish Beach Music Festival, Calgary Stampede and the Merritt Mountain Music Festival, and were honoured with the Canadian Radio Music Award’s Best New Country Artist in 2010. The girls took home the Canadian Country Music Association’s Rising Star award the same year, as well as the BC Country Music Association’s Single of the Year, Group or Duo, Album and Entertainer of the Year.

One More Girl has performed on the Island once, at the Cavendish Beach Music Festival in 2012, but this will be Brett Kissel’s first time on P.E.I.
