The Dungarees


Making themselves a staple in the Canadian country music scene over the past seven years, The Dungarees, comprised of James Murdoch (bass/vocals), Robb Angus (guitar/vocals), Kiron Jhass (guitar/vocals) Darrek Anderson (steel guitar) and Ben Shillabeer (drums) have a definitive mandate for their music – take the undeniable lyrical styling, twangy telecaster and steel guitar they love from classic country and inject it with harmony, modern intensity, and pop sensibility to make it all their own.

This mandate has made The Dungarees irresistible to fans and industry alike. With Murdoch, Anderson and Shillabeer all recognized by the CCMA with award nominations for their respective instruments, the band as a whole has been honoured with three 2018 ACMA Awards for Group of the Year, Video of the Year and Rising Star.

Riding the momentum of the 2016 hit ‘I’m Down’, the band didn’t slow down through 2017 with their summer smash ‘Anywhere With You’, produced by legendary multi-Grammy Award winning producer Paul Worley. The track skyrocketed up the Australian country charts, landing in the Top 10 and peaking at #6 for six weeks straight.

Keeping pace, ‘Don’t Hold Back’ is the latest single from the group, produced by Juno Award winning producer Russell Broom at The Audio Department in Edmonton.

“Throughout the band’s run, we have always been up for a challenge,” says lead vocalist James Murdoch. “That’s kind of what this song encapsulates. We’re going to give it our all when it comes to our music, love and causes we believe in. We don’t back down and we don’t hold back!”

The Dungarees have performed on some of Canada’s most celebrated summer festival stages including Boots and Hearts, Big Valley Jamboree, The Calgary Stampede, Country Thunder, Dauphin CountryFest and Sunfest Country Music Festival as well as Tamworth Country Music Festival in Australia. The band has also had the honour to be direct support for country music royalty such as Miranda Lambert, Blake Shelton, Reba McEntire, Dwight Yoakam and Alabama.

With their 2018 single coming out hot, there is one thing The Dungarees are sure of – they are not holding anything back this year.
