The Sweet Remains is made up of three gifted and charismatic singer-songwriters, each of whom contributes to the writing and three-part harmonies that define the band’s sound: Brian Chartrand (Phoenix, AZ – Live from Laurel Canyon creator), Rich Price (Burlington, VT), and Greg Naughton (New York, NY).
Driven by strong lyrical and melodic writing, their songs easily appeal to fans of modern folk-rockers such as Jason Mraz, Ray LaMontagne, and John Mayer. However, it is their lush harmonies that distinguish them from the throngs of guitar-toting troubadours and harken back to supergroups of the 1960s and 1970s, such as Crosby, Stills & Nash; the Eagles; and Simon and Garfunkel.
In 2008, the three musicians met for a chance jam session in a Rhode Island hotel room, and they instantly recognized a musical blend and kinship that would eventually overcome geography to form the Sweet Remains.
After that first jam session in 2008, they began writing and recording together during breaks in each of their solo touring when they could all manage to meet at a small home studio in Los Angeles. The band’s debut album, Laurel & Sunset, was released several months later, and the band has been winning the praise of audiences and critics across the country ever since. Laurel & Sunset has over 17 million streams on Spotify.
Hushed, smooth folk-pop . . . a smooth take on Crosby, Stills & Nash and James Taylor.
