Dala’s song “Fortress”, from the 2006 album “This Moment Is A Flash”, was recently featured in the series finale of CTV’s Flashpoint. Fun Fact: Fortress was also featured in the very first episode of the series back in 2008.
On their recent West Coast Tour, Amanda and Sheila were invited to visit the Tacoma School Of The Arts. Dala performed an intimate show at the SOTA’s black box theater, sharing a handful of songs, stories from touring and advice for up and coming musicians.
Amanda brought her watercolor kit on our recent tour of California, New Mexico, Alberta, BC and Washington. Check out her ongoing series here:
Dala’s new album “Best Day” has been nominated for three Canadian Folk Music Awards: English Songwriter of the Year, Vocal Group of the Year and Producer of the Year for Mike Roth.

Good Idea: Listening to The Beach Boys while running on Long Beach
Bad Idea: Having your parking meter expire while running on Long Beach
Good Idea: Amanda doing water colour painting in the passenger seat on the drive to Big Sur
Bad idea: Amanda leaving her water colour cup in the cup holder beside Sheila
Today marks the beginning of our 5 week tour through California, New Mexico, Alberta, British Columbia and Washington. Sheila and I spent our first San Diego morning pursuing our individual bliss.
