We are very excited to announce that Romi Mayes will be performing at DarkCross when the annual cyclocross hootenanny returns to the Red River Co-op Speedway on Sept. 12, 2015.
Mayes’ gritty, down and dirty roots music is a perfect fit for the dirt-track setting that provides DarkCross with its unique backdrop, not to mention the aching beauty that is cyclocross racing.
Mayes is known for her powerful lyrical ability that gives life to the words she sings. Her insightful sweet and edgy vocals paint pictures of heart on her sleeve sincerity and a road well travelled. The talented players that surround her are another confirmation of how her honest abilities draw the best of the best toward her authentic brand of roots music.
Mayes continues to bring her brilliant songs, impressive guitar skills, and passionate performances to stages across the globe. She has relentlessly toured Canada, US, Europe, UK, and has shared the stage with the likes of Levon Helm, Derek Trucks, Ricky Skaggs, Jim Cuddy, Gordie Johnson, Guy Clark, Sue Foley, Fred Eaglesmith, Corb Lund, Blackie and The Rodeo Kings, and many more.
Her most recent album, Devil On Both Shoulders, is another testament to why Romi Mayes’ past albums have garnered three Western Canadian Music Awards for Songwriter of the Year, two Western Canadian Music Awards for Album of The Year, a Juno nomination for Album of the Year, and various Canadian Music Award nominations.
