Song Preservation Society

“What the Shins are to the movie Garden State, Song Preservation Society could be to a potential Golden State.”
-Music Connection

Song Preservation Society is Trevor Bahnson, Ethan Glazer and Daniel Wright. Their debut EP, Ready Room, was recorded in the fall of 2012 with guidance from the much-respected Nino Moschella, master of coaxing masterful production out of a modest multitrack. Ready Room is Song Preservation Society’s from-the-heart music brought to full and beautiful life with brass, woodwinds, strings and even fuzz guitar. It’s seven songs with a strange kind of purity that points to something timeless. In 1966, it could have fit between the Beach Boys, Simon and Garfunkel and Love; in 1976, it’d make people think of the last Big Star album; right now it shines through bands like Fleet Foxes and The Shins to be a ray of light all its own. When they started out, they might have picked that name just for fun, but on Ready Room, they’ve really made something worth preserving.

“What the Shins are to the movie Garden State, Song Preservation Society could be to a potential Golden State. SPS write songs of love and life as taught by their Woodstock predecessors, and these kids have learned it well.”

“The laid-back sound of Song Preservation Society lay somewhere between Paul Simon and Bon Iver, leaning to the more modern side of folk. You get glimmers of artistry from yesteryear, but then SPS does something to bring you back to the present.  The blending of old and new provides for familiar, yet inspiring territory.”

“Robust like the scenery in the Golden State, Song Preservation Society highlights the natural, hearty and pure elements in their songs, and the full arrangements (strings, woodwind, brass) make theirs a society for sophisticates.”

“Song Preservation Society’s soft, tenor voices melt together as if they were one, with harmonies and melodic intricacies. No synths. No pitch adjustment. Just euphony.”
