About The Pushing Daisies Featuring Bubba B The MC
Originating in Winnipeg, Canada during the year of 1995, the Pushing Daisies line-up solidified in 1996, as Roland Cote (Vocals/Guitars), James Roth (Guitars), Curtis Paull (Guitars) and Darren Burtniak (drums/percussion).
Pushing Daisies achieved much success with first album, Pretending To Be Famous, and the break-out single Disagree, which earned impressive radio play on commercial stations across Canada, and put a video in regular rotation on Much Music. A showcase at Canadian Music Week where they were named winners of the Rising Star Award and a busy touring schedule the following summer found them on the road and playing to sold out arenas as opening act on The Guess Who’s “Running Back Thru Canada Tour.”
Their highly anticipated sophomore disc, How It Makes You Feel, was released in late 2005 to a sold out crowd in their hometown of Winnipeg. The album’s first two singles, Punches and The Weekend, received regular rotation on Canada’s commercial radio. Other stand-out tracks from How It Makes You Feel include Fall Back Into Me, a melodious tune that landed a spot on Global’s hit television series Falcon Beach; and Stranger, which took top marks in the Canadian Music Week Songwriters’ Awards.
In 2006, Pushing Daisies wrote and recorded C'Mon C'Mon, the Official Song of the 2006 Grey Cup for the Canadian Football League. The single was played on major TV stations in Canada and the USA and released on radio in Canada.
More recently, The Daisies started “Inspiration Needs An Instrument”, a fund raising monies to supply instruments for Manitoba Schools and played for 24 hours to raise money and kick off the fund.
"Manitoba is fortunate to have a premier band like the Pushing Daisies show such leadership to connect with schools and community through their own 'Inspiration Needs an Instrument' initiative. A free 24 hour concert, a free concert series for schools, and an ongoing efforts to raise awareness for the value of music education, the Pushing Daisies are demonstrating tremendous commitment to a very important component of Manitoba's education system. The success of music programs in Manitoba schools has always relied on community partnerships to fund the acquisition of instruments. Such a talented and accomplished band is a welcome partner in support of music education in Manitoba." - Peter Bjornson - Minister of Education
In May 2009, “Your Devils and Your Angels”, The Pushing Daisies third studio album was released, with the lead single “Ride” hitting Canadian Radio full speed and “Blood On The Dance Floor” debuting on Hockey Night In Canada during the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
2010 Starts off with a different vibe as The Daisies hit the studio with legendary children’s performer Fred Penner and record “Comfort Food” for Hot 103’s We Are Family CD in support of the Children’s Hospital.

Your Devils And Your Angels
“I wasn’t born in Mississippi,” sings Daisies frontman Roland Cote. You’d never guess from their third album. Deftly balancing gritty blues licks and searing slide solos with punchy modern-rock hooks and sonics — and mixing in funk, country and pop for good measure — the veteran quintet craft hard-grooving fare that picks up where Big Sugar and Wide Mouth Mason left off. - Darryl Sterdan – Winnipeg Sun
"This has the kind of contemporary feel that will work in today's climate" - Alan Cross - Senior Program Director for Splice Interactive Media (Canada)
"I think it might just be my favorite indie disc that I've heard all year" - Ron Harwood - Promotions/Media Relations/Sales Rep EMI Music Canada
