From the dirt road to the main stage, the Dirt Road Angels have created quite a following in their 7 years together. What started out as solo artists coming together to collaborate on one show has turned into a magical connection that has become an incredible musical project fueled by their love of country rock music and sisterhood. The Edmonton based seasoned singer-songwriters and “soul sisters”, consisting of Danita Lynn, Dahlia Wakefield, Karen Claypool, and Shila Marieformed the group in 2013 and have released three albums since their inception.
Having released several music
videos and 9 singles to Canadian Country Radio, the Dirt Road Angels‘
latest album called “Extra Dirty” features modern, edgy country
rock such as the title track which went #1 in Europe. The Dirt
Road Angels rock every stage with their infectious energy,
enthusiasm and camaraderie, and their blend of lush harmonies is truly
angelic. Their latest and 10th single “Call It
Home” was written by DRAngels Karen Claypool and Shila Marie, as well as
Real Fagnan on guitar and producer Rob Hewes. “Call it Home” is all about
family and dear friends; no matter where you are in the world, if you are
with the ones you love, you can call it home. You may not have much, but
if you have love, you have everything. Home is where love is.
