Dear Rouge - First Play Live
8 months ago
Danielle and Drew McTaggart turned a lot of heads with their first Dear Rouge record, 2013's Black to Gold, winning awards and staking out a spot on the charts. After winning "Breakthrough Group of the Year" at the 2016 Juno Awards, the pressure on the Vancouver-based band to follow up their successful debut was high, to say the least. But they didn't rush out their sophomore album, they took their time, and a couple of years later they were back with a new album, Phases. As they stepped back into the spotlight with Phases, Danielle and Drew's swagger and knack for catchy hooks was on full display. Not long before their album's official release in March of 2018, the two made themselves at home in CBC Music's Toronto studio and invited some fans to watch this special live performance of their new songs.
