After a decade of writing chart topping songs for country artists like Shane Yellowbird, Brett Kissel, Tenille Townes, and many more, and seeing their solo projects sidelined due to the pandemic, Calgary-based husband-and-wife musicians Troy Kokol and Joni Delaurier decided it was the perfect time to start a band together.
Following their first single as Scarlett Butler, “Looking for a Lockdown With You”–which landed them in the Billboard Canadian Top 50 and helped to raise funds for the Unison Benevolent Fund–the duo recently released their highly anticipated follow-up “Love Me Like California”.
You can catch Scarlett Butler sharing their original songs and stories during the kick off to the Blue Jay Sessions: Anniversary Edition on September 3 at The Prairie Emporium in Calgary.
Until then, here are the talented country duo’s favourite places to go for food and drink in their hometown.
For live music and libations, The Ironwood Stage and Grill is our most favourite haunt and was even the location for our apres-wedding bash!
For brews and buddies, we enjoy Last Best Brewing and Distilling. Fun vibe, great choice of beers. Try the Blackberry Lavender Sour!
