Josh Norrad is a Country/Rock musician from Boiestown NB, a small town located along the world famous Miramichi River. Recently Josh entered a contest hosted by the Rexton NB based clothing brand Country Liberty.  Musicians from all over the Maritimes competed in the contest for a $300 Country Liberty sponsorship as well as the opportunity to perform a full set at Cavendish Beach Music Festival this summer. The entrants were asked to upload a video of themselves singing a cover song of their choice and then campaign their fans on social media for views and votes. After 2 rounds spread over 3 weeks the fans had voted Josh Norrad to be the winner of the contest with over 84,000 views, 3600 shares, and over 3700 votes. 

“I lost a bit of sleep over it” laughed Josh, referring to the tense moments of the competition. When asked how he feels about winning Josh said “I am very excited, this is an opportunity that few artists will ever have and I am honoured have the chance to perform my music and to represent the Miramichi River Valley and my fans at such a large event.  I want to say thank you to Country Liberty and CBMF for this opportunity and above all,I want to thank everyone who supports me, they are the ones who put me here and I will work hard to make them proud”

Cavendish Beach Music Festival will be held July 6-7-8 2018 in Cavendish PEI. This year CBMF will be featuring country superstar Luke Bryan as the headlining act. With a annual attendance of 60,000 people this is sure to be their biggest year yet!
