Archie Pateman


Archie is a Vancouver Island based entrepreneur. He’s a father of two young boys, a husband of an amazing woman, an accomplished musician, an avid mountain biker, a volunteer firefighter and a skilled woodworker. At 22, Pateman was asked to record an original song in Nashville for a Country Music Hall of Fame project called “New Faces”. He stayed in Nashville long enough to know it wasn’t the life for him. He went on to be a founding member of Vancouver roots band The Breakmen. After 3 albums and 6 years of professional touring the band parted ways and Pateman moved to Cumberland. He now owns and operates The Cumberland Crate Company while skiing and biking as often as possible.
