The Sweet Remains
When Rich Price, Greg Naughton and Brian Chartrand met for a chance jam-session in 2008, the three instantly recognized a musical blend and kinship that would eventually overcome geography (and solo careers) to form The Sweet Remains. An unusual band on today’s music scene, tSR is headed by three singer-songwriters, each of whom contribute to the writing and three-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 troubadours and harken back to the harmony-driven music of the ‘60s and ‘70s like Crosby, Stills & Nash, the Eagles and Simon & Garfunkel. Rich and Greg first started collaborating writing songs for Rich’s 2004 Geffen Records debut - a CD that spawned Rich’s single “I’m On My Way,” featured on the multi-platinum Shrek 2 soundtrack. Their debut album, Laurel & Sunset, followed and was released in January 2008. Their latest, Night Songs, was released in September 2015 which sparked the tremendous “viral” spread of their music in 2016, including the rare milestone for an all-indie band of nearly 20 million plays on Spotify.
