CD, Thinking Out Loud, #12 on International Folk Charts
Folk Alley’s artist of the month in 2008
The fresh and soulful sounds of Scott and Michelle’s voices, combined with their high energy performance, memorable and meaningful songwriting, and instrumental finnesse, put them in a category all their own. Said to have more sound than two people should be allowed, acoustic Rock or Folk genres could very well hold them but not completely. They dip down into R&B, Jazz, roots, and Blues showing the versatility of this duo. Since their Kerrville Folk Festival and South West Regional Folk Alliance Debut’s in 2004, they are gaining recognition and respect from not only audiences, but from venue owners and established artists alike:
“At our house concert this summer, Michelle and Scott Dalziel delivered song after song with polished, tight-as-a-drum harmony and precision instrumentation with guitars and djembe. Nearly every song was introduced with an amusing or heartfelt story that set the stage for us to connect with each. We heard the emotional story in “Rachel’s Song” of a healing bond between two women and their music. We understood commitment in “Gravel Roads”, and here in the middle of July, we could almost feel exactly how cold Iowa winters can be. The best thing of all? They love their work and it showed in their faces and in the eye contact they made with their audience. They interacted with the audience in the best way and are the perfect package for house concerts and listening rooms.” – Becky Abel, Among Friends Concert Series.
“Scott and Michelle have a super tight duo sound with great harmonies, great guitar playing and some of the most soulful drumming and singing anywhere. I Love these guys!” – Chris Rosser, Singer Songwriter, Producer, Engineer
These guys have the full package, tight harmonies, solid songs, and a groove that won’t stop. All dished out with loads of fun, great energy, and big open hearts.- Johnsmith,
“Scott and Michelle opened for me and I was knocked out by their great songs, singing, and playing. They were great!” – Michael Smith,
A beautiful natural blend of voices and musicianship with some intriguing writing. It’s obvious they enjoy performing together because they’re very connected on stage They opened for Michael Smith at the Village Square. Our audience loved them and has asked us to bring them back!
