County’s Instant Rivalry ‘new faces going places’ release Whiskey and Lead album

Prince Edward County’s own, award-winning, brother sister duo, Instant Rivalry announce album release and concert.

It’s no secret that Instant Rivalry’s Meg and Caleb Hutton have been working toward a new record for a few years. After winning two consecutive all-Ontario talent competitions, touring and being featured as Country Music Association of Ontario’s new faces going places, the pressure was on for the duo to get in a recording studio.

“There were setbacks and obstacles and wolves in sheep’s clothing.” Meg admits, “but I wouldn’t change a thing. This journey has made us better equipped to survive and build our place in the industry.”

It was important to Meg and Caleb to create a record that was professional and timeless. Something their fans could have a genuine connection with.

That vision led the them to Nashville, Tennessee where they hand selected studio musicians from multiple genres – country, rock, bluegrass and folk – to breathe life into their songs and capture the Instant Rivalry sound.

“We tracked all 15 songs, live off the floor, in two days,” said Caleb, who is also a sound engineer and owns Back Forty Productions. “We did a lot of one-take recordings that truly captured the essence and raw energy behind every song.”

The two wrote, produced and oversaw the post production of Whiskey and Lead. They are also independently releasing the album.

Early reviews are labelling it “refreshing”, “dynamic”, with “harmonies reminiscent of Little Big Town and Fleetwood Mac” and with the “diversity of The Eagles”.

“This isn’t just the acoustic duo you’ve come to know. It’s bigger and full of energy. It’s confident and fiery, yet earnest and vulnerable too. It’s music with a story,” said Meg. “It’s Instant Rivalry like you’ve never heard them before.”

Instant Rivalry is releasing Whiskey and Lead on Dec. 6th online and in stores. However, on Thursday, Dec. 5th at the Regent Theatre there will be a release party/concert and all ticket holders will get a copy of the album a day before its public release and enjoy the duo live with a nine-piece band as they perform the songs from the album.

“Doing our album release concert at home was important for us.” Megan adds, “Our community has supported us at every turn. We are so lucky to call The County home.”

Tickets go on sale Nov. 7th at the Regent Theatre Box Office. Regular tickets start at $25. VIP tickets are $40.
