Digging Roots

With the release of their latest album project, For the Light, multi‐award and JUNO‐winning alternative roots duo Digging Roots bring their nomadic wanderlust to sonic terrain. With 12 original tracks that reflect a maturing sense of storytelling, For the Light features husband‐and‐wife team Raven Kanatakta and ShoShona Kish trading lead vocals, continuing to fluidly complement each other’s strengths while going from whispery intimacies to smoky wails. Firmly inhabiting roots and blues, the album is an eclectic tapestry of light and dark sound with sweet harmonies and melodic accompaniments of ukulele, banjo, mellotron and, of course, Raven’s bombastic resonator guitar
