Born in the rural Canadian town of Alliston Ontario to her German mother and South African father, Dayle McLeod discovered her passion for singing and acting after joining her church choir and participating musicals.
Dayle got her start in entertainment starring in Martin Gero’s CW/CTV series ‘THE L.A COMPLEX’, Kristin Waterson’s epic gay web series ‘THATS MY DJ’ and Mary Harron’s new film ‘Charlie Says’, the story of Charles Manson, alongside ‘THE CROWN’ star Matt Smith. Her song 'My Mother's Body' will be featured in the film as a musical score, premiering at the The 75th Venice International Film Festival.
Inspired by Canadian folk artists and songwriters such as Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen and Jann Arden, Dayle’s music is a fusion of classic folk with her pop sensibilities. She released her debut E.P ‘IN BLOOM' in January 2017 and her first L.P ‘FRIENDS’ will be released on August 23 2018.
Dayle released her first music video for her single 'Melancholia' directed by Sam Coyle of With Wolves Media in Toronto. Together, they made her second music video 'FRIENDS', a raw and epic dance piece.
Dayle lives between Toronto, New York and Los Angeles. She is currently writing another L.P with an audiobook memoir companion to be released 2019.
