BANJO BABES 

I have been graciously asked to join the ladies of the Banjo Babes community to be on the upcoming 2018 Banjo Babes Calendar and Compilation CD. It is a great honour to be included with 11 other banjo playing gals from across the world! Who doesn't need a calendar? Who doesn't need a new album of amazing banjo music?

NEW MUSIC VIDEO

At the beginning of October, The Dead South played a show in the small town of Kuroki, SK, a place near and dear to our fearless leader and guitar player Nate Hilts. The show was amazing, and we began shooting a new music video to the song "Boots". Stay tuned, I think it'll turn out to be quite the production!

Eliza Doyle Announced It Ain’t What It Seems

Eliza Doyle’s new album, It Ain’t What It Seems, takes a more serious and intimate approach than some of her past work as a high-energy banjo player.  The songs on It Ain’t What It Seems have been written over a period of years, but didn’t really fit into Doyle’s stage show at the time.  Now she’s taking the time to let these songs shine.

Elize Doyle plays banjo, guitar, dobro, and sings on the album, which has given her lease to explore the musical expression of some of the lyrical ideas on the album.  Themes like personal struggle, the unknowns of travelling, and lost love.  It Ain’t What It Seems looks through the eyes of someone taking on the world by themselves, celebrating the freedom and empowerment that comes with that bold task.

Artist Biography:

When Eliza Doyle’s car broke down in Nashville in 2015, she found herself happily stuck in Music City.  The venerable Saskatchewan banjo player and singer/songwriter had stopped in to see a festival and ended up enjoying an extended stay, playing in bars and meeting all manner of talented musicians.  Having been on sabbatical to follow her muse anyway, it seemed like fate urging her to keep on the well-worn path to musical fulfillment.

Doyle has had a fifteen-year career in groups, as a solo artist, and as a professional session musician, playing banjo, singing, and even performing with instruments like dobro or mandolin.  She has released nine full-length albums, won numerous awards, and toured North America and Europe.  Doyle has been a regional finalist in CBC’s Searchlight Canada competition and past winner of Bell Media’s contest, The Next Big Thing.   

Whether creating a driving rhythm to hold a track together or shucking and plucking some leads to jump to the front of a song, Doyle has the versatility to go from beautiful and melodious songs to a full blast bootstompin’ hoe down.  Her strong, but wonderfully frayed voice belts out captivating tunes and harmonies.  Everything about Eliza Doyle’s music rings of an authenticity that takes you straight to the beating heart of folk and bluegrass music.
