THE SWEET REMAINS

January 20 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

After the tremendous “viral” spread of their music in 2016, including the rare mile-stone for an all-indie band of nearly 20 Million plays on Spotify, The Sweet Remains are excited to present live-takes of songs from their three studio albums to date. Founders: Rich Price, Greg Naughton & Brian Chartrand.

An unusual band on today’s music scene, tSR is headed by 3 singer-songwriters, each of whom contribute to the writing and 3-part harmonies that define the band’s sound. Driven by strong lyrical and melodic writing, their songs easily appeal to fans of modern folk-rockers such as Ray Lamontagne, and John Mayer. However, it is their lush harmonies that distinguish tSR from the throngs of guitar-toting troubadors and harken back to the so-called “super-groups” of the 60’s and 70’s like CSN, the Eagles, Simon & Garfunkel.

 

It was a chance jam session in a Rhode Island hotel room in 2007 that convinced Rich Price, Greg Naughton & Brian Chartrand to form The Sweet Remains. They instantly recognized a musical blend and kinship that would eventually overcome the challenges of solo-careers and geography (they reside in VT, CT and AZ respectively) and set about writing their first album together “Laurel & Sunset”, which was released in 2008. They’ve since released 3 studio albums together, a live DVD & CD, toured all over the U.S. and Europe, and just finished principal shooting for a forthcoming feature film due out in 2017 that is loosely based on their experiences together and in the music business.

In 2014, their music started to gain traction with online music-sharers and major streaming services, and has since racked up almost 20 Million Spotify plays (over 325,000 monthly listeners) and garnered this little indie- band fans from all over the globe.
