Default Trent Severn

Trent Severn

Earlier this month I came across a review of a local Ontario band called 'Trent Severn', curiously named after a waterway system in this province. With my interest piqued, I picked up their CD and gave this trio of young ladies a listen. Their debut album (of the same name) features songs lightly entwined with local images, Canadian names and events. Beautiful vocals, layered more than harmonized. For those familiar, I found something reminiscent of the the song “Nobody but the Baby” as found in the soundtrack of the Movie 'Oh Brother, Where Art Thou'. The scene by the river where the sirens, Emmylou Harris, Alison Krauss & Gillian Welch, place George Clooney & companions under their spell. Sounds of Crosby, Stills and Nash also can be found throughout, particularly in the first song entitled 'Snowy Soul'. You can sample a number of their songs at their website by clicking on the 'listen' tab on the bar at the top of the page. If interested, give them a listen. I hope to hear more from this talented trio in the future.

Check out their website below.

Their album can be purchased through Outside Music, where I obtained my copy.

I understand it is also available on iTunes

Burton was all A-Twitter earlier this week upon discovering these girls at SUNRISE records on Yonge St. in TO on Tuesday - he posted several times about them on his FB too...
He was might impressed!

Default Re: Trent Severn

i remember our discussion about Emm (w/ Royal Wood) a few years ago here

I had just seen her solo in Hamilton - it was a good show (great studio sound) but its wise and rejuvenating that she hooked up with trio, imo, for a change of direction... thematically too

she has been around quite a while toiling - once singing backups live for Bowie

thx for heads up on the group...its like the roches meets lightfoot...maybe not

hey, a fave old video from Gryner
