Dala can sing! What beautiful flights of melody and harmony, reminiscent of
the Everly Brothers, the Louvin Brothers, Emmylou Harris and associates;
though Dala can trade a melody line and leave one wondering who is taking
the lead and simply leave one behind when the harmonies kick in.

Juno nominees and winners of the 2010 Canadian Folk Music Award for Vocal Group of the Year, Amanda Walther and Sheila Carabine of Dala have come a long way in a short time. These two best friends met in their high school music class and wrote their first song together in 2002. Since then they have released five albums and toured extensively across North America. Drawing upon influences like The Beatles, Joni Mitchell, Neil Young and Bob Dylan, Dala write songs that are both catchy and insightful. Amanda's ethereal soprano voice blends seamlessly with Sheila's velvety alto, creating the lush harmonies that have become their trademark.
