Founded in 2005 by Senja Sargeant, Maia Davies, Jasmine Bleile and Anna Ruddick, Ladies of the Canyon began their career playing small venues in Montreal's popular Mile-End neighborhood. At the time their music consisted mainly of "countrified" 1970s Californian soft-rock sound; over time their musical style expanded to include classic folk and contemporary rock.
The group released their first studio album, Haunted Woman, in 2010 through Kindling/Warner Music Canada. In the three years following this release, Ladies of the Canyon appeared on stage with Broken Social Scene and The Dears, were nominated for a Canadian Country Music Association award. The band worked with producer Mark Howard to record their second album, Diamond Heart. In 2012, during the recording of this album, Sargeant was replaced by drummer Tara Martin.Diamond Heart was released in September, 2013.
