Lemon Cash



Captiol Centre Presents

Brothers Cory and Jeff Papineau made money running a lemonade stand as kids; now, as adults, the Ottawa natives are paying homage to their lifelong creative partnership by calling their country music duo Lemon Cash.

The fast-rising singer and drummer duo have honed their live show into an energetic, fan-pleasing spectacle. Following their impressive set at the Sakamoto Mixer during the 2021 CCMAs, Lemon Cash signed with Sakamoto Agency, playing a record number of shows in 2022, including an ambitious nine shows in 10 days at the Calgary Stampede, as well as The Women’s Show in Ottawa, Manitoulin Country Fest, Cochrane Summerfest, Rock N Country By The Lake, and Coulee Fest at Lethbridge College. They also independently released “It Ain’t Me It’s You,” a high-energy and catchy summer song, produced by Dan Swinimer.

Gathering as much industry attention as they have fans, in spring 2023 Lemon Cash signed to Sakamoto Music (Warner Music Canada). In June they released their first signed single “Breakup Song”, nailing their first Top-40 radio hit, and features as the Rogers “One to Watch” and Stingray “Trending Track”. The song also surpassed their entire past streaming catalogue within its first few weeks of release, racking up nearly 100K streams in two months. In 2023, Lemon Cash performed at the Men’s World Curling Championships in Ottawa, the Ottawa Senators’ Fan Appreciation Day, Renfrew Music Festival, Richmond Fair, Rogers Radio Staff BBQ, Stevensville Ram Rodeo, and many more events and shows.

With many more lemons to squeeze, this is just the start for Lemon Cash. As they write with more and more artists in Nashville, producer Dan Swinimer (JoJo Mason, Sacha, Madeline Merlo) has been working with the pair on their recordings, with an EP coming in 2024, and many more live shows on the horizon.
