Info

Emerson Drive is a Canadian country music band which started out in Grande Prairie, Alberta in 1995 as 12 Gauge. The band is composed of Brad Mates (lead vocals), David Pichette (fiddle), Danick Dupelle (lead guitar), Mike Melancon (drums), and Dale Wallace (keyboards). Former bass guitarist Patrick Bourque committed suicide in late 2007, and has not been replaced with an official bass guitarist. Early on, the band found minor success in Canada, releasing two albums under the name of 12 Gauge, and charting two minor singles on the Canadian charts and a music video on CMT. By 2003, they had been re-named Emerson Drive, and had moved to Nashville, Tennessee to find a major label record deal. Emerson Drive recorded two albums on the DreamWorks Records label, and charted several hits on both the U.S. and Canadian country music charts. After DreamWorks' collapse in 2005, Emerson Drive signed to Midas Records Nashville, where they resumed their streak of hit singles, including their first Number One single in "Moments".
