The Dearhearts are 3 girls playing tiny instruments from a tiny hamlet called Rosebud. Alix Cowman, Lauren de Graaf, and Lauren Hamm met while attending Rosebud School of the Arts, where they discovered their shared love for all things bluegrass and jazz. That love finds it’s way into their music through their smooth 3-part harmonies and toe-tapping beats. They find their inspiration through such legends as The Carter Family, Rosemary Clooney, and The Andrew Sisters, and have been called “the next generation of The Wailin’ Jennys”.
Since forming in May 2014, the girls have been enjoying milestone after milestone, each one coming as quickly as another passes. After a successful summer tour, they released their self-titled debut album in October 2014. March 2015 saw them entered in CBC’s annual Searchlight competition. 4 weeks later, they found themselves at the head of the pack, becoming Calgary’s Regional Champion and beating out over 3000 bands to become a part of the Top 23 new bands in Canada. During their time in Searchlight, their song “July” was played countless times on multiple radio stations, including CBC Radio One. And the opportunities for these rising stars keep pouring in.
These three women will tug at your heartstrings with their soaring harmonies and tickle your funny bone with their quick wit. The Dearhearts are sweet, sassy, and simply delightful.
