Survive or Thrive?

In the depth of COVID isolation, husband and wife, Megan and Pat Whalen recorded a song in a parking garage. They were looking for a way to stop themselves from going crazy. It kind of worked. 

After a successful series of Youtube videos Deep Southwest was born. Deep SW plays a mix of classic country, Canadiana an a splash of upbeat acoustic favorites 

With performance experience across North America The husband-wife duo want to pay homage to the rural roots of Southwestern Ontario they now call home.

How do you record a song in Nashville when you can't travel? 

By the power of modern technology,  Deep Southwest recorded all vocal tracks in a studio right at home and sent them to producer Jimmy Thow.

Residing in Nashville the singer/ songwriter/ producer  is one half of the two-time CCMA nominated duo Sons of Daughters.  


Thow has collaborated on four top 10 hits as a songwriter, one of which reached No. 2 on the Canadian Billboard Country Chart, “Good Jeans” by Tebey.

How to Train your Demon.

This first single by DSW is a personal story that chronicles Pat's road to sobriety with an upbeat twist 

Struggling to find the right words to express his struggles with alcohol. Pat chose to write about the effects of alcoholism  through the eyes of his wife. 

The song depicts her heart ache and patience as she stands helpless in the face of his addiction, all with an upbeat catchy melody.
