Roteliuk Releases Debut Single

rossroteliukRoss Roteliuk

A local singer/songwriter has released his first single.  Ross Roteliuk, who grew up in Portage la Prairie and attended PCI, says he's working on a debut album which will hopefully be launched this June.  Roteliuk notes the single became available on iTunes last week and was released to Canadian country radio last Monday.  The song, entitled "I Will Love Again," was co-written by Johnny Reid and Doc Walker.  Roteliuk says the initial response on iTunes was very exciting, noting he charted in the top country downloads.  He adds it was pretty cool to see his name alongside some of his music idols such as Johnny Cash.  

Roteliuk says the song got a lot of traction on iTunes, but he won't know for a few more weeks what the response has been like on the radio.  He notes they did shoot a music video for the single, so folks can find that on You Tube or they can check out his website at  Roteliuk says he and Dave Wasyliw are co-writing the entire album together, adding he'd like to see six or seven singles come off of it as well.  He notes he tends to write a lot of sad songs about break-ups, mostly because that's the kind of music he enjoys listening to as well.  Roteliuk says the album will contain some fun summer songs in addition to those tunes that pull on the heartstrings.
