The Promised started out as a roots/country duo consisting of Jesse and Noelle Burch. The pair met in 2018 while performing with their respective bands at the Cloverdale Rodeo. A mutual respect for music sparked a writing session, where it became clear their musical chemistry was undeniable. Blending genres and experimenting with their different influences created a synergy for writing catchy and original songs.
Spending most of their time together writing for the next 4 months created an interesting dynamic, and in September of 2018, they were married.
The two teamed up with an incredible group of musicians from across western Canada and The Promised was born. They were accepted into the 2019 Breakthrough Country music project Top 12 and after two rounds of competitions they were named 1st Place Grand Prize winners.
Working with MyTone Records and Bailey Way Entertainment at the Warehouse Studios they released their debut single/music video “We Could Be in Love” on July 29th 2019 and has already been added to many international radio stations and playlists. They hit the the Sunfest Main Stage this year, just prior to headliner Jason Aldean.
With tight harmonies and a powerful sound, their music captures you within it's story. Their chemistry on and off stage is undeniable and their energy will keep you wanting more.
“...roots music that is as evocative as it is endearing...a hint of bluegrass...a little bit of Americana..”
“...vocal melodies that transcend the limitations of studio recording altogether...”
“Canada’s been producing some really excellent country acts this year, and The Promised are by far one of the best that I’ve heard.”
“I’ll be keeping an eye on their progress, and I’d urge all Canadian country connoisseurs to do the same. ”
“...pure country magic...”
“ ...It feels like country for a new, younger generation.”
