April of 2012 finds Voss finishing up work on his sophomore album in Nashville with music city icon Harry Stinson (Steve Earle, Martina McBride, Marty Stuart, Corb Lund) producing. “Show ‘em Who’s Voss” the debut single, “It’s A Pride Thing” will hit radio in Canada on April 2nd, with the album scheduled to drop June 1st. Plans are in the works to release to the Americana Market in the U.S. in October with France, Germany , Belgium and Australia to follow in 2013.
