Abigale-Music NL Country Artist of the Year Nominee. At 15 years old her tone comes from a different time and place. Not the voice of a trend or a moment in time. But rather a place of truth and honesty filled with nuance and wisdom. So it is little wonder the young singer/songwriter speaks of Bob Dylan, Hank Williams and the Carter Family when asked of who inspires her as an artist. Abigale started writing songs early performing at every event in town, singing harmonies with younger sister Jordyn but with the help of Zack Werner and Greg Tobin as producers and mentors her debut album “Country True” was released. It’s been a whole new world coming from the small outport community of Hodges Cove to being a part of a world wide music business and Abigale is enjoying every minute!
