Oh My Darling are  Winnipeg based folk/roots and country band http://www.ohmydarling.ca/or  www.myspace.com/ohmydarlingmusic 

Oh My Darling is emerging as a powerhouse of superb female musicianship. Utilizing their keen sense of stylistic versatility, these young women have an vastly eclectic repertoire. Drawing inspiration from traditional music, their original songs are energetic and moving. They infuse their unique brand of country music with the old time sounds of appalachia, a Southern twang, and some funk inspired bass lines that'll get your hips swinging while your toes are tapping. In early 2009 they released their debut, a self-titled EP. Highlighting the beautiful original songs of Vanessa Kuzina (guitar, vocals), the instrumental prowess and unique instrumental compositions of Allison de Groot (banjo, vocals) and Rosalyn Dennett (fiddle, vocals) and the undeniably infectious grooves laid down by Marie-Josee Dandeneau (upright bass), this promising debut gained them attention across Canada, including a nomination for Best Roots Album at the 2009 Western Canadian Music Awards.

This fall, Oh My Darling is in the studio recording their first full length album with renowned producer Lloyd Peterson (Wailin' Jennys, James Keelaghan). Their new repertoire pays tribute to traditional sounds, while creating new and exciting instrumental compositions, and showcases captivating new songs that weave a rich tapestry of original repertoire. Heard regularly on CBC and topping university radio charts, the gals are excited to get into the studio, and are revving up for their third Western Canadian tour early this Spring 2010.

"Oh My Darling truly is the quintessential roots ensemble. This band of smoking prairie pistols can do no wrong - from their divine melodies to their haunting Appalachian ballads, they'll leave you looking under your feet for a pile of sawdust and over your shoulder for cold mountain. Lend an ear people; it simply doesn't get much better than this." (Jules Adolpe, Candor Shop)
