Derina Harvey Band

Derina Harvey Band

BIO/DESCRIPTION

Derina Harvey leads the award-winning ​Celtic Rock group, the Derina Harvey Band (dHb). 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’s repertoire consists of both original songs and re-imagined folks songs of the east coast, and songs from the Celtic tradition.

The group enjoyed a huge wave of new online followers from across the globe via TikTok, where there was a sea shanty craze that started in 2020. dHb’s recording of Tom Lewis’s “The Last Shanty” was used in thousands of videos on the platform, introducing the band to a whole new generation of listeners.

dHb released a new full-length album titled “Waves of Home” on June 23rd, 2023. The band has toured across Canada and the US, mostly via the performing arts and festival circuits. Their dedication to touring in their home region of Atlantic Canada has not gone unnoticed – they are nominated for a 2024 East Coast Music Award in the “Fans’ Choice Entertainer of the Year” category.
