Broken Trail is a high-energy country band based in Western Washington. The band has been voted into the Top-10 out of nearly 400 bands (of all musical genres) in KING 5 Evening Magazine's 2008 and 2009 Best of Western Washington contests. They were the only Country band ranked in the Top-10 the last two years.

The band debuted on the Northwest music scene in 1996. A popular band in clubs, fairs, casinos, rodeos, and other events, they bring a full sound that features Mark Medalen on rhythm guitar and vocals, Andy Vance on lead guitar and vocals, Barry Bernier on drums and vocals, Mike Anderson on bass, and Tom Phelps on pedal steel guitar and vocals. Gary Broers engineers and mixes the sound bringing a great balance to the music.

Broken Trail's debut CD titled "What This Country Needs" was released in 2009 on the independent label BAMM Records. All songs were written, arranged, and performed by Broken Trail. Co-produced with Rickie Ray Heinzman at Bam Bam Studios in Lakewood, WA, this disc features original high-energy modern country songs with a nod to the classics that have become the band's signature sound

Broken Trail was born out of a mutual love for live country music, and more importantly, a demand for good bands in the Northwest. Formed in 1996 by Mark Medalen and Barry Bernier, Broken Trail quickly developed a large fan base devoted to their energetic live shows, exciting stage presence, strong musicianship and 3-4 part harmonies, and most importantly, a song selection that appeals to dancers and music lovers of all ages. In addition to their original material, their set list is an education in country music hits that covers countless artists and spans several decades. Covering classic artists such as Haggard, Jones, Paycheck, Cash, Waylon and Willie, Hank Sr. and Jr., and Buck, as well as “young country” artists including Brooks and Dunn, Brad Paisley, Jason Aldean, Joe Nichols, Toby Keith, Garth, Dwight, Kentucky Headhunters, George Strait, and Alan Jackson just to name a few. While staying true to the roots of country music, Broken Trail puts their own signature sound and arrangements into every song they play.
