Out country music artist Patrick Masse recently released his latest romp, “Let’s Ride,” conjuring up California dreams of chilling on the coast.
The guitar-driven track combines contemporary country vibes with Masse’s rich, classic country vocals.
“This is a summer driving song,” says Masse. “Open your rooftop, open your sunroof, roll down your windows, and blast it from your speakers! If you’re on foot turn up those headphones.”
Masse has been a constant in the Global country music scene since the release of his critically acclaimed 1998 debut album, “Get There From Here.”
In 2001, he received a nomination for the Horizon Award at The BC Country Music Association Awards.
Patrick’s second album “Mend The Man” had two charted singles, “Everybody Likes To Be Loved” and “Put Love First.”
His recent single “Little Bit of Saturday” (which Patrick co-wrote) was produced by @KUYA Productions – best known for working with Alessia Cara, JRDN, Shawn Desman, and Kelly Clarkson.

Masse recently told Front Porch Music, “I’d like to see the Canadian country music industry celebrate the fact that three Canadian country artists have helped open doors and pave the way for many other queer artists in the country music industry.”
In fact, Masse isn’t waiting for others to open doors for out artists. He’s launched his own label, Y75 Records Inc., and is announcing an open call for artists to be a part of his label.
“It’s an all inclusive, diverse West Coast Vancouver BC based record label,” says Masse. “The only prerequisite is that you have talent.”
Back in 2017, I interviewed Masse for The Randy Report podcast when he teamed up with fellow out country artist Drake Jensen on the upbeat and inspiring “Go Your Own Way.”
