What We’re Made Of is The Washboard Union’s sophomore album following the 2016 release of In My Bones which spawned the Top ten hits “Maybe It’s The Moonshine” and “Shot Of Glory” which was certified as the band’s first gold record. The new album was produced by Matt Rovey (Zac Brown Band, Dean Brody) in Nashville and Jeff "Diesel" Dalziel in Toronto and Vancouver over the winter of 2017/18. The album’s first single, “Shine” was the band’s third Top Ten Country Radio hit which they performed live on the Canadian Country Music Awards and walked away with a CCMA Award for 2017 Roots Artist of the Year.

15X Country Music Award winners The Washboard Union have defied classification and have become one of the most exciting and talked about new bands in Country music . Led by step-brothers Aaron Grain, & Chris Duncombe and their best friend David Roberts the Washboard Union share an innate love for the art of songwriting and storytelling that has resonated with audiences from North America to Europe.

Having grown up in Kelowna, Duncombe & Grain eventually packed up and headed off to to Vancouver where they moved in to a 1920’s Tudor-style mansion. By coincidence Roberts was himself renting in the same mansion and it was here where all three began writing and singing together. These early sessions were the bones of what would eventually become The Washboard Union. Roberts would reminisce, “it was like living in a garden gone to seed.” Grain provided guitar and vocals and Duncombe added his own voice and a banjo. Roberts, a singer and multi-instrumentalist with harmonica, guitar, mandolin and, of course, the washboard in his arsenal, became the team’s secret weapon.

Their music and their unforgettable live performances have set them apart as one of the most unique talents in country music today. The band have just wrapped up a tour with Nashville superstars Old Dominion and have a full itinerary of festival dates planned from coast to coast throughout 2018.
