Demonstrations & Exhibits







Country/pop singer, songwriter, performer, vocal coach, dancer, model, journalist... and the list goes on. Beaverton native, Sarah Wickett  is no stranger to being in the spotlight. 

The small town girl has been singing since she was little, but has over 11 years of professional experience. She picked up guitar when she was 15 and hasn't put it down since. In 2016 Sarah was able to perform all over Northern, Ontario. One of Sarah's biggest performances was at the CCMA's Country Future Showcase in London, Ont.

Sarah wishes to inspire people to try to reach for their dreams, no matter how big or how unrealistic they may seem. She believes anything is possible if you really truly, want it. Sarah has worked so hard to be where she is today, and she still isn't done striving to be bigger and better.


From the largest stages and arenas to the director’s chair, from writing hit songs to creating characters on the silver screen; Wes Mack has established himself as a creative force of many forms.

Mack broke into the country music scene in 2013 when he released his debut single “Duet” with no label or agent behind him at the time.  Armed with new music, Mack exploded outward in 2015: releasing his 3rd and 4th top 20 singles “Before You Drive Me Crazy” and “The Way You Let Me Down”, picking up his 6th CCMA nomination, and performing with Shania Twain across the nation on her “Rock This Country” farewell tour. 

Between his time on numerous creative ventures, Mack has worked to give back to a number of institutions to which he owes much of his life. As a young child, Mack underwent heart surgery to correct a congenital heart defect. Now, as an adult, Mack has paired with the Cardiac Kids (in connection with the Sick Kids hospital in Toronto) and the Alberta Children’s Hospital in an effort to raise awareness and money for these organizations. “I’m always happy to help these folks out. They did so much for me, and for so many other kids; it feels good to try and pay it back.”

An acclaimed musician with a reputation for writing from the heart,  combining a classic country sound with a toe-tapping, dynamic twist. 

Some people are born with a special talent, perhaps even a musical soul.  Adopted as a baby to a family in Calgary, AB, no one knew what an impact his biological DNA would have on his life path. Following a spontaneous dare while traveling in Australia, and an unexpected phone call, the course of Wills’ life would literally change forever. 

 In keeping with his commitment to playing and writing country music he started splitting time between (his home base) Calgary and Nashville.  Falling in love with music, he invested years in perfecting his craft and released his debut album Man With No Past in 2010. He also received wide acclaim throughout the 2013 country music awards season with the release of his second album If It Was That Easy (2012); an album which included two top 10 hits, CCMA Award Single of the Year nominated “Show Some Respect” (which peaked at #8 on the BDS charts) and “Somebody Will” (which peaked at #9 on the BDS charts).
