KALYNA RAKEL & DAN GURMANCanadian duo Kalyna Rakel and Dan Gurman have been waiting and preparing to hit the road and are excited to announce their UK tour!
Kalyna will be singin’ and wailin’ out her songs with distorted guitar and stompin’ on drums, while Dan will be messin’ around on whatever instrument he feels inspired to play – be it slide guitar, banjo, pedal steel? They’re not afraid to put it all down and play an acoustic song stripped down and straight from the heart.

They have recorded a lot from home this past year during covid, and are excited to share these songs live with you for the first time.
You can find the new music on Bandcamp: kalynarakelmusic.bandcamp.com

“The dozen originals on Before & After You announce a new roots-rock voice has arrived. Whether she is tearing up the highway on Yellow-Blue or crooning like a mix of Amy Winehouse and Rickie Lee Jones on My First Love Song, Rakel sounds completely in control of her voice and message.” – VANCOUVER SUN

“Her velvet voice and soulful melodies are as pleasing as it gets, and her lyrics are both intimate and inspirational.” – KEEP WALKING MUSIC, MADRID

“She sings in a way that feels so raw and natural and that is entirely unique to her. With every note she sings, the listener gets a feeling of unbridled authenticity…. real without ever alienating listeners; something I haven’t felt since Lily Allen.” – STEREO STICKMAN

“Kalyna Rakel sent out soul shivers into the hearts of her intent listeners” – FOLK MUSIC ONTARIO (WEBSITE 2019)
