They are the Hillside Outlaws, a small country group from Penticton, BC.

Louis Bigras –Guitar/Singer
Born in a small town in northern Ontario, Louis grew up surrounded by music. His father, Réal, was a hometown hero who played guitar and sang at just about every small town event. Like father like son, Louis showed interest in the guitar at an early age. Although they were not wealthy, his parents worked hard to feed his passion and bought him a junior sized dime store six string at the age of 9, a guitar that he still has to this day.
Carlos Jimenez – Bass / backup vocals
Born in El Salvador, Carlos moved to Canada at a young age and soon fell in love with music. Picking up the bass at age 12, it didn’t take long to move to guitar, only a year later. Having several bands during High School, Carlos also learned how to play drums and only recently started trying his hand at keyboards. He prides himself in the fact that he is self taught with every instrument he plays, having never taken a single lesson.
Erik Galata – Drums
Erik was born and raised in Penticton and has lived in the hills since he was a kid. He has always loved music and started playing drums when he was in his teens. Some of his favourite drummers include John Bonham (Led Zeppelin), Lee Kerslake (Ozzy Osbourne), and Rich Redmond (Jason Aldean). He’s constantly improving his drum chops and has no plans to ever give up.
Langley Jackson – Lead Guitar
Born and raised in Grande Prairie Alberta, Langley grew up listening to his parent’s vinyl records. Kiss, Led Zepplin and Rolling Stones are among his early influences. He bought his first guitar at 13 and started a garage band playing Metallica and Zepplin covers. After High School and several years off music to raise his daughter he was asked to join a local country band. Says Langley “I didn’t know the first thing about country music; I grew up on Metal not George Strait”. It didn’t take long for him to be won over by the genre, “it was the harmonized vocals, the slick arrangements and incredible guitar work that really changed the way I looked at music and approached my own playing”
