When a crowd is feverishly singing along with the last chorus upon first listen, you know it's a song that connects. This is what happens when The Strumbellas play «Spirits» live for the first time, the first single from their new album, Hope, That experience embodies the essence of what has been attracting fans from across North America to this six-piece Lindsay, Ontario-bred band. The Strumbellas got their start in 2009 with their eponymous EP release, which was peppered with accolades from Toronto weeklies and prompted a proclamation from the CBC that they are a «band to watch.» Since then, the group has been on the road earning their stripes through sold-out residencies at different clubs in Toronto, as well as several cross-country tours and summer festivals. In 2012 the band released their debut album My Father And The Hunter, an album full of haunting lyrics fused with infectious and danceable melodies that won them both fans and critical recognition across multiple genres of music. Earning them a coveted JUNO nomination, the album offered a beautiful, harmonious dichotomy between melancholy heartbreak and blow-the-barn-doors-off spunk, a sound that would become synonymous with their music.
A year later, The Strumbellas followed-up with their sophomore album We Still Move On Dance Floors, which earned them six awards, including their first JUNO award. In early 2015, The Strumbellas, off the road and ready to go into the studio again, set up shop at downtown Toronto's Lincoln County Social Club to record the new album with LA Producer/Engineer Dave Schiffman (Johnny Cash, Haim, Weezer). It's a two cents democracy when it comes to The Strumbellas. Case in point — there's always one line in a Strumbellas' song that causes an internal crisis. It's the way in which these six winds blow in from different directions that make the discussion most interesting. The Strumbellas are Simon Ward — vocals, acoustic guitar ,David Ritter — piano, percussion, vocals ,Jeremy Drury — drums, percussion ,Isabel Ritchie — violin, vocals ,Jon Hembrey — electric guitar and Darryl James – bass.
