On May 6th Blenders will be hosting one final Special Show, featuring Juno-Award winning band, Elliott Brood, best known for their captivating alternative-rock music. Don’t miss out on this amazing show at the Lyric Theatre.
Elliott Brood is a Canadian three-piece, alternative country band that formed in 2002, reigning from Toronto, ON. The band consists of Mark Sasso on lead vocals, guitar, banjo, ukulele, harmonica, and kazoo; Casey Laforet on guitar, lead vocals, backing vocals, bass pedals, keys, and ukulele; and Stephen Pitkin on percussion, sampler, and backing vocals. The band’s style has been categorized as “death country”, “frontier rock”, or “revival music.”
Elliott BROOD have always been time travellers. The Toronto trio writes songs steeped in history that feel very present. They’ve done their share of actual travelling, too, these musical troubadours, acoustic guitars and banjos slung over their sharp suits as they barnstormed across Canada and beyond.
The writing of their album, Work and Love (2014), was the first time the group’s two songwriters decided to mine the bare histories of their own lives: penning verses about the ends of relationships and the tests of adulthood, long drives, childhood retreating in a rear-view mirror. Work and Love is their most personal album to date, the sound of a grown-up band searching their hearts for all they’ve lost and gained.
From the time of their inception and across five subsequent albums, sharing vocals and trading instruments – each of the band-members seem to play everything – Elliott Brood have become one of the premier acts in Canadian roots music. There is great excitement for their next album, just out in early 2017.
