Acoustic Tunes with Attitude! Hold on to your maracas – this roots rock duo will make ya “kick up yer heals and hit ya right in the feels!”
Canadian singer/songwriters Dan & Melody Wiklund have harmonized and traveled all over central & western Canada and parts of the USA, performing & delighting audiences with their award winning, acoustic duo project: WIKLUND vs WIKLUND.
The couple grew up in the prairie hills of “small town” southern Manitoba, who left their humble country beginnings on a pursuit to carve out a little piece of the performance life together in the Rocky Mountains of Alberta. Since their collaboration as a duo in 2017, they have accumulated hundreds of live performances under their belt, including opening spots for Julian Austin, Charlie Major & Canadian icon Kim Mitchell. Their efforts resulted in a win at the 2018 Red Deer Entertainment Awards for best duo/group of the year and most recently, an invitation to perform at the 2019 MONDO NYC Music Conference in Brooklyn, NY.
When the Wiklunds light up the stage, folks can’t help dancing, stomping, singing and kazooing along to their brand of home grown original music. With an infectious energy and raw honesty, the pair have a classic sound reminiscent of 70’s & 80’s roots rock with a twang of country tossed in. They crack jokes and carry a back n’ forth banter that only a feisty married couple could do! Mix that with hooky guitar riffs, heartfelt lyrics, searing vocals and wonderfully blended harmonies – Wiklund vs Wiklund have a song for everyone… the young and the young at heart.
