After over a decade in the music business, 604 Record’s Kadooh is taking things in a whole new direction and stepping into the spotlight for the first time. Known as the guitarist and backing vocalist of JUNO nominated/multi-platinum rock band State of Shock, the musician has always carried with him an appreciation for all genres of music—and now he’s ready to take it back to his roots.

Kadooh has released his first two singles as a country artist, “24 Reasons” and “Somethin’ To Roll On”, with a debut six-song EP just released. Plus, he’s already won his first BC Country Music Association Award. The project was brought together with the help of producer Jeff Johnson and reflects Kadooh’s new sound—one that has found influence in not only his everyday life, but an engrained love of music as a whole.

Another guiding force came in the form of award-winning musician and songwriter Chad Kroeger, who Kadooh said provided not only inspiration, but co-produced two of the EP’s forthcoming tracks, as well. Ready to take his place front and center, Kadooh says while he may not be used to taking on the role of front man just yet, he can’t wait to see what this new path has in store.
