Album Notes

Do you know anyone who has not experienced the devil on one shoulder and the angel on the other?

This collection of songs is a journey. By enjoying the whole CD as a package with photos and a story, the listener will have a deeper experience with the music. Of course, downloading one song is always fun and practical as well. To each his own...

"Darcie Deaville provides the fiery fiddling and the wild-eyed stares that fans fear to love and love to fear."... say the Meat Purveyors.

One moment, the wildest, most abandoned and unedited music springs from Darcie's heart to her hands to her fiddle.
Sometimes as little as an hour later, Darcie will be playing another gig, a traditional Cajun walttz, sending a sweet, soothing solo in the air.

Have you heard the saying, "The only thing better than having a fiddle in the band is having TWO fiddles in the band?" Twin fiddles have plenty of history in all types of music.

So, the twin fiddle sisters were born. Darcie's a dreamer. Marcie, the evil twin, is a screamer. Darcie Deaville's photo is on the front cover, and Marcie Mercy's photo on the back.

The twins feel quite lucky to express devil and angel so easily with the fiddle.


"Pilots and musicians are of the same breed. They all have their heads in the clouds," Darcie muses. Born in Toronto to a journalist/pilot mother and a bush helicopter pilot father, she started her childhood in Northern Canada, constantly moving around the North American continent, from one culture to another. At 16, Darcie struck out on her own, continuing to "pay her dues", making her living on the streets of Toronto playing guitar. Finally finding home in Austin, TX, Darcie is well known for her fiery fiddling and singing her songs, and with artists including Ray Wylie Hubbard, Eliza Gilkyson, Toni Price, Slaid Cleaves, Tish Hinojosa, The Meat Purveyors, and more. Currently she's a member of the band The Austin Lounge Lizards.

Darcie’s versatility has been her strength. In the past few years she has developed her own personal way of coaching music for adults and kids of all ages.

Her involvement in theatre has kept her busy in Canada, Austria, Italy, Prague, Scotland, and NYC. Currently Darcie is a cast member of the play about Woody Guthrie called "Woody Sez", a four person cast that is also the band. Her part was written for her, playing multiple characters and instruments.

In 2007 she released her 5th CD, "Livin' on the Lucky Side.” Her alter ego/evil twin fiddle sister, Marcie Mercy, assists. Darcie and Marcie also team up to perform, write stories, play on and produce CD's for other musicians.

She's recorded and released five CDs:
Livin' on the Lucky Side (Taller Dog 2007)
Darcie Deaville Plays the Fiddle and Sings (Taller Dog) 2003
Tornado In Slo Mo (Redwing Music) 1999
Ways To Fly Gillman Deaville (Flying Fish Records) 1994
Last Hitchhiker on the Lost Highway (independent) 1988

'[Darcie] shows a talent for songwriting and storytelling on a par with Rory Block and Mary Chapin Carpenter. Clearly, Deaville is one to watch.'
— Kerry Dexter, Dirty Linen

'Intelligent, warmly satisfying and touching. At home on an assortment of instruments, Darcie Deaville is not to be overlooked....'
— The New York Times
