Dauzat St. Marie sneak in a touch of “Appalachian fashion” in their groove-heavy remake of The 1975’s hit “Robbers.” This bluegrass-tinged re-imagination of the song is a perfect summation of the duo’s love of modern music combined with their penchant for folk instrumentation of yesteryear, all while proudly waving their signature flag of lush vocal harmonies.
No matter how you pronounce ”Dauzat St. Marie” [though dō’-zaht saynt muh-ree’ would be accurate], the name has certainly been circulating far and wide these past several years through heavyweight touring with heavyweight artists. These two hardcore troubadours have been busy touring all over the U.S. as main support for Grammy® Award winning heartthrob Rick Springfield’s “Stripped Down” solo acoustic show series for the past four years and have peppered in dates with The Marshall Tucker Band, Lindsay Ell, Schuyler Fisk / Sissy Spacek, and Rick Derringer in between. Most recently, the power duo toured the U.S. as main support for legendary music icons Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo.
In early 2020, Dauzat St. Marie were awarded their biggest tour to date – the main support slot on the summer arena tour with Rick Springfield and the world’s best-selling groups of all time – CHICAGO. Sadly, the tour was terminated less than two months before it even began due to Covid-19. Though being handed a tough blow, Dauzat St. Marie didn’t skip a beat – the duo used the forced downtime to begin releasing new music and video via their YouTube channel as soon as the world went into lockdown in March. In less than nine months, the duo had gained over a million YouTube views, and one of their new singles titled “Where Were You?” landed on this year’s Grammy® Awards ballot in three separate categories – Song Of The Year, Record Of The Year, and Best Pop Duo / Group Performance. With pent-up fan demand for their live shows at an all time high, Dauzat St. Marie are prepared to propel to great new heights in the post pandemic world.
