We are BASSET

 

Basset is a new all-acoustic outfit from Toronto admired for their “fresh and distinct sound”. While they draw on folk traditions from both sides of the pond in their use of fiddle, mandolin and cello, their inventive style also borrows elements of jazz, soul, classic rock, and classical music. From tender ballads to driving blues, Basset charms audiences with their infectious love for each other and the music they play. They released their debut, self-titled EP in June 2019, and just four months after their debut single, have already amassed nearly 7000 total streams on Spotify.

 

Lead Vocals | Yasmine Shelton

🌻The Basset EP is ONLINE!🌻
We launched her! She's free!
PLEASE give the other tracks on the album a LISTEN if you haven't already. We're super proud of them and each one showcases Me (Yas), Sam, Noah and Aaron in a different way. O DEATH is a traditional song with some new original sections, it's the bluesiest song on the album and was the most challenging but thrilling Vocally. DEAD RINGER let us get super creative with the arrangement and gave way to some wild Cello and Violin solos. DIN of DAY is short and so sweet. The harmonies give me so much joy and the guitar part really showcases Aaron's musicality!

Give them a listen! Share and follow if you can, it makes such a difference and the love you've shown us over the past few months has made this project go so much farther than we ever hoped. ❤
