Dagmar is an indie classical, harmony driven band currently based out of Iowa. A new music project with history, Gemma Cohen (vocals, bass) and Miranda Mallard (vocals, keyboard, guitar) are Dagmar’s core. They have attained sister status after having sung together for over 8 years in the trio Rock Paper Scissors. Now a duo, and anchored in their prairie homeland, Gemma and Miranda create original music rocking their curly manes. Harmonies continue to be a staple for this duo along with influences ranging from Phillip Glass to the Fleet Foxes. Dagmar’s sound is raw, challenging, a vulnerable vocal driven exposition of Medieval harmonies and uncrumpled diaries.
Dagmar is blessed to share the stage with golden boys Dana T and Justin LeDuc. Dana adds sugar, spice, and lots of things nice with his guitar and array of pedals. Justin tackles complex time signatures of songs written in 11/4 and beyond; with a smile on his face, drumming like he belongs to Mensa.
