The Strumbellas (Glassnote)
5/10/16

WHAT IT IS: When a crowd is feverishly singing along with the last chorus upon first listen, you know it’s a song that connects. That’s what happens when The Strumbellas play “Spirits”—the first single from their just-released album, Hope. That experience embodies the essence of what’s been attracting fans to this Lindsay, Ontario-bred band. Formed in 2009, they’ve released two albums, toured across North America and, in 2014, were named Folk Group of The Year by SiriusXM Indies. In early 2015, the six-piece set up shop at downtown Toronto’s Lincoln County Social Club to record the new album with producer/engineer Dave Schiffman (Johnny Cash, Haim, Weezer). During those sessions, Schiffman and the band harnessed a vivid alternative rock sound. Bigger. Bolder. Beckoning.
