The next events for the Lively Arts Ovations! series will
feature two evenings of engaging works by the Sweet Remains. In addition to the
trio’s concert slated for Friday, March 1, 2019, at 8:00 p.m. in Gorell Recital
Hall, there will be a free screening of their award-winning film The Independents the night before at
6:30 p.m. in Beard Auditorium of Stouffer Hall.
With over 35 million listens on Spotify, the Sweet Remains
will appeal to fans of contemporary folk-rock. The Sweet Remains highlights
their lyricism and melodic writing. However, their three-part harmonies are
what separate them from the rest. USA Today has featured the Sweet Remains
twice as their pick-of-the-week for their harmonies.
The group, consisting of Rich Price, Greg Naughton, and
Brian Chartrand, started over 10 years ago at a jam session in 2007. In the
years that followed, the Sweet Remains continued to rise, gaining major traction
with streaming services. In 2017, the indie band created their own feature
film, The Independents, a dramedy
which is loosely based on their experience as a band in the music industry.
Today, the Sweet Remains continues to dominate online streaming, with over
300,000 monthly listeners of their three albums: Live at the Canal Room (2012), North & Prospect (2013), and Night Songs (2015).
