About Us  

The Dirt Road Angels are a rockin’ country female group who deliver deliciously layered harmonies and an undeniably hefty dose of charisma along with a high energy stage performance. Individual recording artists Danita Lynn, Dahlia Wakefield, Shila Marie and Karen Claypool came together in the fall of 2013 releasing an introductory compilation CD branding themselves as the Dirt Road Angels. The group tours acoustically as a 4 or 5 piece and also as a full 7 piece band. Since their inception, the group has gone on to record two more albums "Paint the Town Red" (2014) and "Extra Dirty" (2018) and have since then released many singles and videos.e contagious joy and passion these girls put into their music. It's never a dull moment with this HIGH ENERGY power group! Two songs on their second album "Paint the Town Red” were finalists in the 2014 International Acoustic Music Awards and the 2014 Calgary Folk Music Songwriting contest. Their third album "Extra Dirty" features remakes of two well-known classic cover songs: Johnny Cash’s "Folsom Prison Blues" and the Eagles’ classic "Seven Bridges Road”, both fan favourites. The title track “Extra Dirty” as well as “Call It Home” have both gone #1 on the European Country Music Charts.

The seven-time ACMA Group of the Year Nominees have released 14 singles so far to Canadian Country Radio from their three albums collectively. The Dirt Road Angels have showcased at CCMA events, AAAS Conventions and performed for many other high profile events including Taste of Edmonton, Porkapalooza, Blueberry Bluegrass Music Festival, Beaumont Blues & Roots Festival, Festival Place Patio Series and the Roots and Boots Concert tour opening for U.S. acts Colin Raye, Sammy Kershaw and Aaron Tippin.
