In a poignant moment on Wednesday night during the release party for his fourth album Now Or Never, Warner Music Canada’s country music superstar Brett Kissel revealed how he almost signed with Deane Cameron and EMI Music.

“(Manager) Louis (O’Reilly) and I – in 2012 – had the most incredible meeting with Deane Cameron and EMI,” Kissel told the approximately 150 in attendance at the Live Nation Lounge in Toronto just before he launched into an acoustic set of new material.

“We felt the music was right – we had a few great songs in the bag, and we took Deane out for dinner because Louis’ labels, On Ramp Records and 306 Records, were distributed by EMI – and we thought that was the perfect place for us. Nothing against the great family we’ve built at Warner Music, but, everybody remember, country music wasn’t where you guys had invested your time or your energy….then.
