Derina Harvey leads the award-winning Celtic Rock sensation the Derina Harvey Band (dHb). With a show that offers a fresh take on traditional folk songs as well as a few originals, Derina’s vibrant personality takes center stage with humor, storytelling, and, of course, her world-class vocals. dHb has been likened to a “rockier” version of Canada’s Great Big Sea, if fronted by Adele, and has earned a reputation as a high-energy live show that leaves many an audience out-of-breath and hollering from their seats!
The band has been across Canada via the performing arts and festival circuits and is now poised to take the United States by storm, having been very well-received at three juried US showcases (Arts Northwest (Best in Showcase Award), Western Arts Alliance, Performing Arts Exchange). The band has begun to make inroads in the US and had finished a tour of the southeastern states just prior to the pandemic. The group has spent the last year writing some new music (releasing the single Grow in 2021) and enjoying a huge wave of new online followers from across the globe via TikTok. dHb’s recording of Tom Lewis’ The Last Shanty was used in thousands of videos on the platform, introducing the band to a whole new generation of listeners and causing their streaming numbers to skyrocket to almost 25 million total streams – and adding over a million more every month!
