Gina Dalmas is an Indie Honky Tonk Country artist hailing from Norfolk, VA.
Gina and her band, The Cow Tippin' Playboys, won the 2015, 2014, 2013 and the 2012 Veer Magazine Award for Best Country Artist, the 2009 Portfolio Music Award for Best Americana Music and the 2009 Meona Award for Best New Alt-Country Artist.
"Gina Dalmas is a country singer with a rock 'n' roll heart. Her music countains plenty of backwoods, Southern spirit, but there are also liberal splashes of rock irreverence."- The Daily Press, November 2013
Gina's country heritage comes straight out of the North Carolina foothills, where she grew up with full plates of honky tonk country and rock and roll. Behind her stand men who dubiously claim to be some of the finest musicians on either side of the Appalachians.
"Backed by her excellent band, The Cow Tipping Playboys (currently bassist Chris May, drummer Gabe Baesen and guitarist Greg Wikle), the country singer-guitarist never fails to bring audiences to their feet and put smiles on their faces. The band is unfailingly tight and polished, but not to a fault. Throughout, you get the sense that they're having a blast. If you're not a country music fan, don't let that scare you away. If anyone can make you a convert, Dalmas can." - Veer Magazine, December 2010
The band's debut recording, "Yee-Haw, Etc" was released in 2010. "...the heart and soul of this recording lie in Dalmas' brilliant vocals. Although I've listened to this album at least a dozen times, I still can't quite put my finger on the essence of her voice. It seems to me that it combines the sensuality of Patsy Cline, the deeper country sensibilities of Loretta Lynn and the wry humor of...well...Gina Dalmas."- Veer Magazine, December 2010
Gina Dalmas and her Cow Tippin' Playboys reach deep into the roots of country music, but always end up making magic of their own. In a world of knock-off country bands aiming for that new radio sound, Gina Dalmas manages to keep country music like it should be, honest, straight forward, and from the heart.
