There’s a saying when life hands you lemons, make lemonade. Ottawa-born brothers, Cory and Jeff Papineau live by this saying. So much so, that they named their band Lemon Cash.
The band’s name was inspired by the brother's childhood when they ran a neighbourhood lemonade stand. The two brothers would come home each day celebrating their hard-earned ‘lemon cash”. To this day they share similar interests in music and continue to write and record music together. They grew up in a very musical family along with a little sister, Taylor, who would often sing and help write songs in their music room at home. When the 3 siblings were very young, they wrote and recorded a jingle for their answering machine on their home phone line: “We can’t take your phone call, we’re busy through and through, but leave your name and number and we’ll get right back to you!” in acapella with three-piece harmonies.
Lemon Cash started out as a cover band, forming an alternative rock band with some local friends from their hometown of Ottawa, Ontario. The band had success playing lots of gigs, receiving radio traction, and formed quite a substantial following for only a couple of years of playing together. After 3 years of playing as a five-piece band, the members of Lemon Cash decided to part on good terms and ended their days as a rock band. Looking to evolve their music, Cory and Jeff found their sweet spot and transitioned into the country world where they would come to realize this is where their tastes and personalities fit best.
The inspiration to switch to the country genre came from their parents: Jeff Sr. and Sandra. They introduced Jeff and Cory to country music at a very young age. Listening to a wide range of artists such as Patsy Cline, George Jones, George Strait, Dolly Parton, Tim McGraw, and Garth Brooks
These country legends became the inspiration for the brothers beginning to write and perform their own songs with their signature blend of harmonies and a tinge of their love of rock music thrown into the lemonade of Lemon Cash.
“Wine Tonight” is the first single from the forthcoming album. Written by Jeff and Cory Papineau and Jeff Armstrong, it is an upbeat, hook-driven song, sure to have you singing along, and craving a cold margarita on a tropical beach.
Lemon Cash is busy recording in the studio with producers such Doug Oliver (Cold Creek County), Chris McComb (River Town Saints) and will be releasing a full-length album later in 2021.
''Lemon Cash has Nashville written all over them,'' says Kim Cyr, Editor in Chief for NOW and THEN Magazine. ''Cory and Jeff Papineau, have everything they need to rise to the top of Canadian country radio. Their harmonies are killer! Lemon Cash has the same IT factor, that sound that puts them in the same league as other top country duos like Florida Georgia Line, High Valley, and Brooks and Dunn. ''Wine Tonight'' is the first single from the forthcoming album. If this is any indication for what the rest of the new album is going to be, we are in for one hell of a ride right along with them. The blend of harmonies, the hook-driven pop country, the upbeat tune have you wanting to dive right into good times and fun in the sun. The perfect feel-good vibes are exactly what we all need, '' says Cyr. Listen to the full interview below.
