Classic bluegrass/Americana vibes come full force with the fun and fantastic charms of The Dustbowl Daddies. Jangle and swinging, the band criss-crosses your mind with effervescence and melodic harmonies that makes you feel, well, good. Real good.
Paul Tyler said: “The song was written for my children, twins, right after they were born. Their names mean Little Fire and Wisdom. The song celebrates the joy (and expresses the fear) of bringing children into the world.”
The band donates most of the proceeds from its live shows and has raised more than $5000 for some of the amazing charities working in Ottawa (including the Ottawa Rape Crisis Centre, Ottawa Inner City Health, Families of Sisters of Sprit).
The band members are made up of Paul Saurette, Paul Tyler, Rob Sparling, Mat Paterson, Kevin Grignon, Lee Jacobs and Chris Leite. They remain deeply connected to places as varied as Vancouver Island, Winnipeg, Toronto, North Bay and northern England, which shows in their works and their overall shimmer.
The Dustbowl Daddies’ upcoming new album, ‘Boom and Bust Economies of Love’, will be launched in the coming year.
