CD Release – Sills & Smith – Uncertain Vista 16/09/2011

Uncertain Vista CD Release Sills&Smith


Genres: Alternative / Folk Rock / Singer/Songwriter


The story of the musical duo Sills and Smith is a strange, magical journey for sure. Jeremy Allan Michael Sills (AKA JAMS) is a talented sound healer, mystic, multi-instrumentalist and singer/songwriter. Frank Smith is a dedicated coordinator of a non-governmental organization by day and a budding singer/songwriter when the sun sets and darkness falls. Both reside in Ottawa. Thrown together by happenstance and some unusual cosmic disruption, the two have been singing and playing together for close to two years. In the last year and a half, their incredible musical odyssey has been an inspiring one, leading to the release of 10 albums — 140 songs and some 9 and a half hours of recorded music — of mostly live cover songs in the alternative folk/rock vein. This music was created out of love for the artists and songs, for the sheer fun of it and the discs were distributed to friends and family. Now after honing their partnership and fully melding their talents, Sills and Smith have released their first album of all original tunes. “Uncertain Vista” is a stunning 21 track, nearly 60 minute collection of great songs, brimming with melody, heart and get up and go. It’s an alternative indie folk/rock album that is both lilting and rollicking, chronicling the pain and joy of life. From the catchy chorus of epic opener A Writer’s Retreat to the glorious harmonies of the title track that ends the album, Uncertain Vista is a surprising melodic trip. Recorded, mixed and produced by the brilliant Jonathan Edwards at Corvidae Music in Ottawa, Uncertain Vista features Jeremy Sills on vocals and guitars, Frank Smith on vocals and Jonathan Edwards providing numerous instruments and backing vocals in support.

Sills And Smith: CD release show, new video



From time-to-time I like to show some love to our friends in the nation’s capitol.  This week it’s for the CD release show for Ottawa-based indie rock band Sills and Smith.

The band will be feting the release of their new album Uncertain Vista.  The show will take place on Friday, September 16th at the Corner Bar and Grill in Westboro (a great brunch spot if I do say so myself).

Check out the video for the track “Writer’s Retreat”, which should appeal to fans of City And Colour:
