About a year ago I got a request from the Canadian bluegrass band ‘Rescue Junction’ to paint a moose for the cover of their upcoming album. Of course I wanted to give it a try and the result, a moose portrait with hughe antlers, is now one of the most popular images in my shop.

I was thrilled when I received a copy of the album. It looks lovely and I love their music! I am proud to be part of this project.

When you visit their website, you can listen to some of their songs.

I copied this text about the band from their website, in case you would like to know more;

Rescue Junction is an award winning Canadian bluegrass band based out of Millbank, Ontario and has been travelling and singing together since 2009. Originally comprised of brother and sister, Kyle & Kaitlyn Gerber on mandolin and guitar respectively, the band has grown to include Roger Martin on banjo, Dallas Roth on upright bass and most recently Nick Huber on dobro.

Rescue Junction combines a plethora of musical tastes with their passion for bluegrass resulting in a unique, refreshing style. From gospel quartet numbers to traditional and contemporary bluegrass to original songs by Kaitlyn, audiences can expect an exhilarating time with the band. Performing mostly throughout their home province of Ontario along with some traveling to the US, Rescue Junction has been fortunate to play at many kinds of venues including churches, parks, community centres, auditoriums, and the bluegrass festival circuit.

Having received numerous nominations at the Central Canada Bluegrass Music Awards, including Album of the Year for “On Any Road,” Rescue Junction has been honoured with awards for Most Promising Group (2013) and Gospel Group (2014). While it is a privilege to represent Canadian Bluegrass and meet many new friends and bands from across the US and Canada, the goal of every Rescue Junction member is to glorify God through music and to share the love of Christ with everyone they can.
