YORKTON - Trevor Panczak is headed to Yorkton.
The Nov. 17, performance at the Painted Hand Casino is part of the YAC presents … series
Panczak is an 18-time Country Music Alberta nominated recording artist from Alberta. He recently had his first Top 40 hit in Canada with ‘Where I Go to Come Back’.
Panczak “is known for his deep and humble farm roots that provide the authentic foundation that is synonymous with country music,” noted a YAC release.
So what will the show scheduled for Yorkton offer audiences?
“The audience in Yorkton will learn about my farm roots, how I got started and they will hear some cover songs of the artists that made an impression in my life and it is my hope that the original music I have to offer reflects those influences,” Panczak told Yorkton This Week. “The original material will include my three top 50 hits and my one top 40 hit ‘Where I Go to Come Back’ that was coincidentally my last release to Canadian radio.”
In terms of music Panczak said he likes varied music.
“I am a fan of Eric Church, Jamey Johnson, Lainey Wilson, Chris Stapleton and I have deep respect for Don Williams,” he said. “I aspire to try to hold country music as close to my heart as they have.”
Not surprisingly his roots are inspiration.
“I love the music that I was raised on,” said Panczak. “I love artists like George Strait, Alan Jackson, Merle Haggard, Kenny Rogers, Gerry Reed, Garth Brooks, and the list goes on and on.
“We could talk for days about the music and artists that have inspired me to do what I do now.
“My music is real. It's country, and it comes from the heart. I believe it is very relatable to listeners of all ages.
And, then there is family.
“I am inspired mostly these days by my two young boys,” offered Panczak. “They love their daddy and they love to play music. I want to raise them up right so that they are the kind of men that look you in the eye during a handshake. Honest, clean livin' and considerate.”
Of course it’s good to be back doing music after the COVID shutdown.
“It has been a blessing to be back out doing shows again and connecting with audiences all over the prairies and beyond. There's nothing like being in front of people,” he said.
“I have been busy with my music and family. I have travelled throughout the prairies and into the U.S. performing and promoting my shows. Currently I am working on a recording project that will start up in January of 2024.”
