“Dedicated to success and passionate about their craft, these relative newcomers to the local music scene continue to build their fan base with their confident and memorable stage presence. Inspired by alternative rock and blues, the music of Kinder Scout will not only make you want to start a band of your own it will make you wonder how a band so fresh and new can make it seem like they've been doing this for years!

"Friends with Benefits Preview: Kinder Scout"

I’ve never seen a man smile so much.

Dale of Kinder Scout is one of the friendliest people you’ll ever meet. Have a short conversation with the man and you will feel like he genuinely cares about what you have to say – he probably does. Dale cares about the community and people around him. As a plus, he has this fantastic band to share his art with us.
If you’ve not yet heard Kinder Scout perform live, you’ve been missing out. They’re a crowd favourite, turning out fantastic rock riffs and great vocals (which would insert very nicely into the Canadian rock radio scene). - MusicReginaLive.ca

"There's a boundary line that separates musicians who specialize in one aspect of their artistry from those who excel on multiple levels. Dale Mac has crossed that border. He's not only a brilliant guitarist, he uses his vocal range dramatically and writes intelligent, relevant songs. His finger picking gives the illusion of two instruments: he maintains a steady, rhythmic, foundational bass at the same time as the upper registers of the guitar move adventurously between melody and accompaniment, never losing an energy that carries the audience right through the song.”  ⎯ Steve Izma, Between The Lines

“great songs of beauty, love and reality” - Joseph M Sanchez, Group Of Seven
