Myrol is an Alberta based duo that blends stunning female voices with insightful and powerful original songwriting. The Americana/Roots/Alt Country duo are often backed up by a band of fantastic seasoned professionals, but are versatile and often play as a trio and a four piece. Although, one might categorize their music as Americana, Joanne and Haley are talented musicians, renowned vocalists and award winning songwriters who traverse through many genres of music weaving an elaborate musical tapestry that ultimately serves the song.
They have won a World Billboard Songwriting Competition Award for ‘The Mighty Peace’, as well as multiple awards from the Calgary Folk Festival Songwriting Competition for their songs over the last three years. The girls have been featured on the main stage at the Big Valley Jamboree, and at the Calgary Folk Festival. The two have toured Europe, Australia, The U.S.A. and Canada, at times playing to crowds of 30,000 and more.
As of February 2011, the girls are promoting their new album ‘Blue Moon Away’ – #2 for them. It features songs by the duo as well as co-writes with Fred Eaglesmith, CFR champion Bull Rider and cowboy poet Dan Lowry, and Nashville’s Tim Taylor. The album also features some of Alberta’s best and most talented musicians as well as some big names from Nashville. Tammy Rogers of the Steel Drivers and Emmylou Harris, plays fiddle and mandolin and Jeff King, who currently plays guitar for Reba McEntire and George Strait, are on the new album.
