The Dungarees

Bio


Comprised of bassist/vocalist James Murdoch, guitarist/vocalist Robb Angus, guitarist/vocalist Kiron Jhass, steel player Darrek Anderson and drummer Ben Shillabeer, The Dungarees have a definitive musical mandate; Take the undeniable lyrical styling, twangy telecaster and steel guitar that they love from classic country, and inject it with harmony, modern intensity and pop sensibility.

 

Among Canada’s fastest rising stars, The Dungarees have performed at marquee festivals including Boots and Hearts Music Festival, the Calgary Stampede, Big Valley Jamboree, Country Thunder, Dauphin CountryFest and SunFest.  Gracing arena stages, the band has proudly opened as direct support for Blake Shelton, Reba McEntire and Miranda Lambert, and the legendary Dwight Yoakam in October 2016.

 

The band’s lead single, “Ain’t Through Being Happy Yet”, received rotation and feature plays on commercial country radio across Canada. 

 

Produced by The Road Hammers’ Clayton Bellamy, the sophomore single "I'm Down" was released in August and added to rotation across the country from coast-to-coast.

 

The Dungarees took home “Country Artist of the Year” at the 2015 Edmonton Music Awards, and both Darrek Anderson and Ben Shillabeer received All-Star Band nominations at the Canadian Country Music Awards. The band was most recently nominated for "Group of The Year" at the 2015 Alberta Country Music Awards, and was honored to be shortlisted for numerous 2016 Canadian Country Music Awards.
