Anywhere and in Casino with The Dungarees
CRAZY Heart was the 2009 movie starring Jeff Bridges that followed an alcoholic outlaw country singer on a downward spiralling path.
For Canadian vocalist and guitarist Robb Angus, the hit film moved him to go back to writing original material, as they both lived in the city of Edmonton.
Angus then convinced bassist James Murdoch, a singer-songwriter in his own right, to join him up in anew band.
The Dungarees are bassist / vocalist James Murdoch, guitarist / vocalist Robb Angus, guitarist / vocalist Kiron Jhass, steel player Darrek Anderson and drummer Ben Shillabeer.
The band admits they have a definitive musical mandate: "to 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."
Produced by multi-Grammy Award wining producer Paul Worley, Anywhere With You is the The Dungarees' follow-up single to I'm Down.
An upbeat summer single, Anywhere With You was recorded at Alberta's OCL Studios, marking Worley's first visit to the studio, and the band's inaugural work with this burgeoning new relationship.
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.
James Murdoch was nominated for the 2017 Canadian Country Music Award as Bass Player of the Year Award, and both Darrek Anderson and Ben Shillabeer have previously received All-Star Band nominations.
The Dungarees were recently nominated for Group of The Year at the 2016 Alberta Country Music Awards, and were honored to be shortlisted for numerous 2017 Canadian Country Music Awards.
