Rochester indie-big-band funk-jazz-soul-pop-disco
The Saplings EP is the debut recording of Rochester-based band, The Saplings–‘love songs’ and ‘hate songs’, unavoidable fate songs. Grooves of the old, sounds of the new (of course there are sounds of the old too). Horns, there are four; all some sort of brass. Push them from soft to full sound in the flashiest flash. Keyboards and Rhodes, guitar, bass and drums. 4-part R.A.D. vocals for your listening fun. Come hear their pop. Like never before. Traces of rock, ska, jazz, maybe more? Come hear the band ’cause they’re coming to you. The tree grows bigger like all saplings do.
“Concocted at the Sound Laboratory that is the Eastman School of Music,
The Saplings’ big band mashes up oddball indie songwriting with soul, jazz, funk, and pop. Come for the rousing horn section, stay for the gorgeous vocal harmonies. It’s almost too much raw talent to take in one sitting. With youthful energy and charisma for days, The Saplings are about to become your new favorite band.” – Rochester City Newspaper
