THE SWEET REMAINS (tSR) is an unusual band on today’s music scene, headed by 3 gifted and charismatic singer-songwriters, each of whom contributes 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 like Jason Mraz, 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 super-groups of the 60’s and 70’s like CSN, the Eagles, and Simon & Garfunkel.
The band has been winning the praise of audiences and critics across the U.S. ever since the band’s debut CD, Laurel & Sunset, was released January 1, 2008. (USA TODAY – “Better Ways to Spend the Day: The folky trio’s new North & Prospect includes this sly, sweetly moody charmer, showcasing their typically robust harmonies.”; BOSTON HERALD – “It’s been a long time since 3-part harmonies this lush were yoked to songs this melodically gorgeous”)
