Sills & Smith – Indigogo Campaign – 5th Studio Album

Sills & Smith – New Studio Album Out October 2015!

Help Sills & Smith support the costs of their new studio album of original songs “Echoes In Time”!

Sills & Smith, led by Ottawa singer-songwriters Jeremy Sills and Frank Smith,  has independently released four studio albums of music that boldly blend and bend elements of folk, alternative rock, progressive rock, blues and even jazz. On the heels of their critically acclaimed album “Etched” they are poised to re-enter the studio with legendary producer Phillip Victor Bova (Bova Sound) to record 13 powerful, melodic original songs; their boldest musical adventure to date. But they need a little help to support the costs of the new album “Echoes In Time” that will be released in October, 2015.

The beauty of this campaign is that depending on the level of support, donors will receive a gift of music — the new album and previous recordings by Sills & Smith. Funds raised will assist with costs of studio time, musicians’ session work and the production of the digipak CD edition.

“Echoes in Time” will feature a stellar cast of players, with the core group: Jeremy Sills (music, vocals, guitars, piano, crystal bowls); Frank Smith (words/music, vocals); Phillip Victor Bova (producer, bass), T. Bruce Wittet (drums/percussion). Brilliant supporting musicians, and their credentials, will be announced as we record the album in the studio. We can, however, confirm that neither Kenny G nor Kanye West are amongst those invited.

Grace Smith will provide her amazing, beautiful photographic art and graphic design skills to create a full colour, four panel digipak CD edition of the album.

The music of Sills and Smith has met with rave reviews in respected music journals including: Cashbox Canada Magazine, Sea of Tranquility and Snob’s Music. Both Uncertain Vista and No Way In, No Way Out were lauded for excellence, making Snob’s Music’s Best of 2011 and Best of 2012 lists respectively. The band is known for its distinctive sound, an adventurous musical palette that is equal parts folk, progressive rock and alternative rock.

“Sills & Smith are an alternative rock band based out of Ottawa who released their fourth full-length record, Etched, in August 2014. If you like intelligent, folk-influenced alternative rock in the vein of The Tragically Hip, then the 13 eclectic tracks that make up Etched will be a perfect fit for you.”  – Lisa Fiorilli, Confront Magazine (Apr 29, 2015)

“Sills & Smith are joined by various musicians who contribute dobro, mandolin, drums, cello and other instruments. Collectively, the songs on Etched rock less than they roll. But this is still the DIY group’s most accomplished and memorable album. (4/5 stars)” – Michael Popke, Sea of Tranquility (Apr 04, 2015)

Sills & Smith have made Etched an obvious labour of love, and this effort permeates the entire album.” Tristin Norenberg-Goodmanson, Earshot – The National Campus Community Radio Report (Feb 27, 2015)

“This Ottawa band is growing by leaps and bounds with each new song. Living On An Island – Sounds like: A plea.” – Larry Lootsteen, Alan Cross – A Journal of Musical Things (Dec 11, 2013)

“These guys deserve some attention and are contributing to a renaissance of sorts in Ottawa’s ever changing music scene.” – Chris Saracino, Standard Media music blog (Aug 19, 2013)

“On The Glorious Ache, Sills & Smith have stepped up their game in all of the right ways. From a more cohesive track order to increased utilization of vocal harmonies and less traditional song structure, Frank Smith and Jeremy Sills are finding a sound that’s truly all their own, with the multi-instrumental and production talents of Jonathan Edwards on hand.”  – Amber Waves, Open ‘Til Midnight (Sep 04, 2013)

All four Sills & Smith studio albums are available in digital and beautiful digipak editions. The unique artwork for each release has been designed by Grace Smith. Retailers include iTunes, Bandcamp, CD Baby, Amazon, Emusic. Sills and Smith has a number of songs in regular rotation on Jango Internet Radio.
