Digging Roots - AK47

Digging Roots… for the last few years the JUNO winning genre-blurring five-piece indy band from the Toronto area have been touring North America and Europe. For seven months in 2016 they performed at festivals and listening rooms in Canada and Australia. Musical partners Raven and ShoShona are the creative team and inspiration behind Digging Roots. Their JUNO nominated album ‘For the Light’ brings more global-blues infused songs and audience ‘round dances’ to their national and international tours. They’ve been in studios from Australia to Canada producing their latest album ‘The Hunter & The Healer’ and have a new single and video for their song ‘AK-47’ which explores the concept of love as a weapon to reclaim our humanity.
