Before moving to Edmonton in 2002, the rolling hills of Labrador West were Derina Harvey’s home. She began performing on stage at the age of five, thanks to her “music and visual art soaked family.”

Choirs, bands, rehearsals and sound checks became a regular part of life and eventually she enrolled in the Music Industry and Performance Program at the College of the North Atlantic. After a short career as a bar manager and moonlighting as a technician’s assistant at the local Arts and Culture Centre, she headed west, settling in Edmonton.

The week Derina’s first maternity check ran out in 2005, she had her first audition as a solo artist in Edmonton. She worked her way up to about 200 gigs a year performing as both a solo act and the front of a five-piece Celtic rock group, the Derina Harvey Band.

Derina credits support from CKUA as contributing immensely to the success of both her band and solo career. The Derina Harvey Band won ‘Best in Showcase’ at the Arts Northwest Conference 2017.
