Artist Biography:
CD, Thinking Out Loud, #12 on Folk DJ list

The fresh and soulful sounds of Scott and Michelle's voices, combined with their high energy performance, memorable and meaningful songwriting, and instrumental finness, put them in a category all their own. Acoustic Rock or Folk genres could very well hold them but not completely. They dip down into R&B, Jazz, roots, and Blues showing the versatility of this duo. Since their Kerrville Folk Festival and South West Regional Folk Alliance Debut's in 2004, they are gaining recognition and respect from not only audiences, but from venue owners and established artists alike:

2006 " The Dalziels will caress your mind and your heart with their songs of people and places that exist in all of our minds. You will feel as though you too have seen Topanga Canyon, been a Sea Faring Man leaving a family behind and the yearning of that young crush while you are Waiting for the Revolution. They are without a doubt one of the most talented songwriting teams and musicians that have ever graced our stage." - Kim, Monson, Two Harbors Folk Festival, Two Harbors, MN

2004 "Scott and Michelle have a super tight duo sound with great harmonies, great guitar playing and some of the most soulful drumming and singing anywhere. I Love these guys!" - Chris Rosser, Singer Songwriter, Producer, Engineer

2004 "Michelle and Scott have a warmth and comfort level on stage that weaves perfectly with their above the norm playing and harmonizing" - Patrick Fineran, The Journal Times, Racine WI.
