Notes: The Laws made their first trip to Cape Breton last year to record their sixth album. They have also been busy playing live and are getting ready to tour across The United States and Canada for most of 2011.
Fast forward…. now with 9 years of touring throughout Canada, the United States and Australia, and 5 CDs, Ontario-based The Laws have been called “the best duo out of Canada since Ian and Sylvia.”, (Editors Note: Sylvia was also from Chatham) won the 2007 Chris Austin Songwriting contest, secured a writing deal in Nashville and have been featured on CMT, Entertainment Tonight Canada and as “rising stars” on the upcoming PBS special, Legends and Lyrics. They published a cookbook and have appeared on numerous cooking and national news shows, generating almost as much press for their culinary skills as for their music.
What’s coming up for The Laws? A second cookbook, a new CD, cooking DVD, and music video.
