Ontario-based singer/songwriter Karli June is back with a new acoustic video for “Big For A Small Town”, which can be watched below.
““Big For a Small Town” is a song I am so proud of and one I wrote on my own,” said June. “It is a celebration of what living life is like in a small town. From running into everyone you know at the grocery store, to packing a hockey arena on a Friday night, this song paints the picture of the life that every small towner knows and loves.”
The playful track is one that anyone living in a small town can relate to and was written by June and produced by superstar producer Karen Kosowski (Meghan Patrick, The Washboard Union, Tim Hicks, Mickey Guyton). The video follows the February release of June’s debut EP, Where You Come From, which has amassed over a quarter of a million streams to date.
Born and raised on a farm in Listowel, Ontario, June grew up singing in her church choir, at local fairs and singing competitions, before teaching herself guitar and making her initial songwriting attempts as a teenager. Inspired by Carrie Underwood, Shania Twain and Kacey Musgraves, she recorded her first two singles in 2016 with CCMA Award-winning producer/guitarist Jason Barry, which led to June landing spots at marquee Canadian country music festivals such as Boots & Hearts, where she shared the stage with many Canadian and American country music luminaries.
Karli was selected to be a 2021 participant in the prestigious TD Incubator for Creative Entrepreneurship powered by SOCAN Foundation, was one of three finalists selected to represent Ontario in the 2021 nationwide Jim Beam Talent Search and opened for award-winning Country music group The Washboard Union at the Saskatchewan Jazz Festival.
