Dear Rouge have quickly proven themselves as mainstays in the Canadian music scene. Their diverse and Alternative laced sound has seen the duo garnering international acclaim, and even winning a Juno Award in 2016. Their new single “Don’t Ever Settle Down,” is taken from the deluxe version of “Phases,” a charming and standout record they released last year.
Drew and Danielle McTaggart were both touring musicians under separate projects. They met while in their early touring days, and began dating, before getting married and starting Dear Rouge. The name of the duo is derived from the name of Danielle’s home town, Red Deer, Alberta. Dear Rouge played several notable summer festival slots throughout the summer of 2018, including Ottawa Bluesfest and the inaugural SKOOKUM Festival in Vancouver, BC.
