Stratford Ontario’s Trent Severn is a collaboration of Emm Gryner, Dayne Manning, and Laura C. Bates. Their sounds is described as ‘Canadiana’: a mix of folk, rock, and old country with lyrics to celebrate Ontario’s folklore and pay tribute to Canadian legends. Their self-titled debut-album will be released November 6, 2012, but you can get a sneak peek of their first track, Snowy Soul. As the song’s title suggests, the track incorporates the etherial quality of snow in its percussion and pretty harmonies, with electric fiddle to keep the sound modern. I look forward to hearing more from Trent Severn – particularly their collaboration with Joel Plaskett.
