Sunrise Records Yesterday

We really have to be honest with you. Trent Severn is a labour of love for the three of us and we really were not expecting your responses to our record. We are so grateful to receive your letters and to hear your stories – so please keep ‘em coming.

Yesterday  - again – was thrilling to say the least. We played at Sunrise Records at Yonge and Bloor and sang for none other than Burton Cummings himself  with no mics! We couldn’t believe that a Trent Severn musical hero came to our in store. Burton Cummings has taught each of us so much in our careers and we are thankful to the core for his support.

Living in that moment will be cherished for many years. He also signed all of our copies of his new record Live at Massy Hall. Here’s a fantastic picture by Lillian Sarafian from yesterday, and a lovely note Burton wrote on his FB page.

Following that we played to a packed house at The Dakota Tavern in Toronto. We’ll be posting some photos from that show shortly.

A special thanks to Burton Cummings, videographer Lil Sarafian & to Steven, Kristy and the Sunrise Records store crew! What a fantastic experience.

xo, TS

Trent Severn – It’s Out!

After 10 songs, almost 900 original emails, (not including replies) 13 months and 17 days, we’re happy to announce that our debut self titled release “Trent Severn” comes out today, November 6th 2012.

If you had a chance to listen to the album preview on CBC.ca this past week, we hope it is apparent that we spent time researching the material for our songwriting, working out our parts and performing them as best we could. Well we’re happy to say that just as much thought was put into our physical packaging too.

The hard copy of the CD is a three panel digipack with a 24 page booklet and a post card. Each song in the booklet features a hand rendered title, a custom postage stamp design, all of our lyrics and a short story about the inspiration for the song. The photos for the stamps were sourced online from across Canada and generously donated by their photographers who are credited in the liner notes. The album cover, a photo by  Jenni Roberts, was even found on instagram.

The post card  you’ll find inside is address to us.  We’re hoping that the Canadiana inspired stories of our songs make you want to share your stories, well known or not.  We’ll be looking forward to receiving your post cards and writing you back.

We would like to extend a special thanks to all of those who contributed stamp photos, Steve Stax for photographing us ladies, and to Megan Brooks who designed the album.

Have a fantastic November 6th everyone – thanks for listening.
