About Dahlia Wakefield
The lyric a little bit country, a little bit rock and roll could have been written about Edmonton, Alberta-based singer-songwriter Dahlia Wakefield. Dahlia creates heart-felt lyrics, memorable melodies and pours her soul into vocal performances that immediately captivate listeners. Her eclectic musical direction explores popular avenues combining rock, pop, blues and a hint of modern country. She has released one self-titled EP, and three commercial CDs "Close To Home", "Down This Road", and most recently "Full Circle", all released on her independent record label, Squirrelly Girl Music. Dahlia graduated with Distinction from the highly regarded music program at Grant MacEwan College in Edmonton where she was the recipient of a scholarship and an award. A performer since age 5 and a songwriter since age 15, Dahlia has placed as a high-ranking finalist in three international songwriting competitions, has received full-rotation radio play as well as global streaming airplay, and has landed on five compilation CDs. She was just chosen to sing the U.S. and Canadian national anthems at the Edmonton Indy on July 21st. Dahlia's rich voice and contemporary-with-roots style allows her music to fit comfortably into almost any play-list or program. Dahlia looks forward to the future and a lifetime of making music!
