Streaming Cafe is proud to present Dear Rouge – 2012 Winner of The PEAK Performance Project with special guest Bed of Stars on their Western Canada tour in support of their new EP release, “Kids Wanna Know”. Dear Rouge (Husband/Wife duo, Drew and Danielle McTaggart) are making a return visit to Kelowna on Thursday January 31, 2013 at Streaming Cafe.
Upon hearing their song, You Step Out Of Nowhere, one has to wonder if Dear Rouge is referring to themselves. With the release of their debut EP, Heads Up Watch Out (released in April 2012), Vancouver-based duo hit the scene with an incredibly accomplished set of songs, production and presence. Now, only six months after their debut release, Dear Rouge have followed up with the five track, Kids Wanna Know EP (released in October 2012).
If this infectious one-two combo wasn’t enough to punch their way into the hearts of alternative music fans, they’re also the 2012 Winner of The PEAK Performance Project, the biggest radio station artist development project in Canada. The PEAK Performance Project is a professional development program to help new and emerging artists create careers in the music industry, with the top prize of $102,700.00 to the winning band.
It doesn’t take long to see that Dear Rouge is a fully realized project, from conception to execution, created and crafted from a perspective only years of professional touring, performing and writing can bring.
