The Sweet Remains

THE BOSTON HERALD – “It’s been a long time since three-part harmonies this lush were yoked to songs as melodically gorgeous as these.”

THE SWEET REMAINS is the the very rare all-independent band to have nearly 50 MILLION SPOTIFY streams and counting!  They're also unusual on today's music scene as a band headed by 3 gifted singer-songwriters, each of whom contribute to the writing and 3-part harmonies that define the band's sound.

Driven by strong lyrical and melodic writing, their songs easily appeal to fans of modern folk-rockers like Jason Mraz, Ray Lamontagne, and John Mayer. However, it is their lush harmonies, that distinguish tSR from the throngs of guitar-toting troubadors and harken back to super-groups of the 60's and 70's like CSN, the Eagles, Simon & Garfunkel.

2020 saw the release of the band's 5th major release (and 4th Studio album), MUSIC FILLS THE SPACES.  Another collaboration with grammy-winning producer and long-time associate, ANDY ZULLA.  In March 2021, the band adds another unique accomplishment with the release of their FEATURE FILM, THE INDEPENDENTS.  Written/Directed by band-member, Greg Naughton, and starring the band, THE INDEPENDENTS is a musical comedy-drama inspired by the band's real-life experiences (and music, of course!).  The film debuted at the Santa Barbara Int'l Film Festival earning praise from The Hollywood Reporter who hailed it "An extremely engaging film... Unconventional and sharply written... Deserves to find an audience beyond the festival circuit."  It next won "Best Feature Film" at the Omaha Film festival and has since won audiences and plaudits at great film festivals all over the U.S. (More film info here).

Artist Bio

When Rich Price (Burlington, VT), Greg Naughton (NYC), and Brian Chartrand (Phoenix, AZ) met by chance, at jam-session , in 2008, the three instantly recognized a kinship and musical union, which lead them to overcome geography, and set aside solo-careers to form The Sweet Remains (tSR). Driven by forceful lyrical and melodic writing of three gifted singer-songwriters, their music appeals to fans of contemporary folk-rockers like Jason Mraz, Ray Lamontagne, and John Mayer. It is their lush three-part harmonies, however, which distinguish tSR from throngs of guitar-toting troubadours, reminiscent of super-groups of the 60's and 70's, like the Eagles, Simon & Garfunkel and CSN. Independently amassing over 38 Million Spotify plays, a fourth studio album in the works for 2019, a live DVD, and an acclaimed new feature film, tSR, is positioned for their everrising demand to tour. After that chance jam-session, Rich, Greg, and Brian began writing and recording together during breaks in their solo touring. Before long, they played these new pieces, for producer Andy Zulla, who ultimately has collaborated on many of their projects. Together, they recorded tSR’s debut CD, Laurel & Sunset. In the fall of 2010, tSR embarked their first European tour through Denmark and Germany. In 2011, their song, “What I’m Looking For”, was featured in Eddie Bauer and Subaru ad campaigns. In 2011, another composition, “Dance With Me” was featured in Putumayo Music’s compilation “Acoustic Cafe” and sold in cafe’s and gift shops world wide. Next, the trio released their DVD & CD, Live at The Canal Room (2012), followed by their sophomore studio album, North & Prospect (2013,) and their most recent release, Night Songs (2015). Feature-length ‘dramedy, The Independents, created by and starring The Sweet Remains, premiered at the 2018 Santa Barbara International Film Festival, to the plaudits of festival-goers and critical accolades. The Hollywood Reporter praised the film as, "Extremely engaging... Unconventional and sharply written...Deserves to find an audience beyond the [film] festival circuit." The Sweet Remains continues garnering critic acclaim. USA TODAY selected two of their songs as its “pick-of-theweek”. The BOSTON HERALD declares, “It has been a long time since three-part harmonies this lush were yoked to songs this melodically gorgeous”. Winning fans globally, The Sweet Remains’ music has been utilized in several feature films and television shows. Numerous artists have covered their soulful, original song. They tour regularly in North America and Europe with dynamic live-shows, ranging from simple core-trio acoustic sets, to their elaborate sextet combo. 

Rich and Greg began writing songs together for Rich's 2004 Geffen Records debut – a CD that spawned the single "I'm On My Way" featured on the multi-platinum Shrek 2 soundtrack. Rich has released four solo albums, and written music for high-profile film and television projects. Venerated by Performing Songwriter Magazine as, “a magnetic writer and performer,” Greg Naughton's debut indie-release, Demogogue & the Sun Songs, was co-produced by Grammy-winning recording artist Phoebe Snow. An accomplished actor and director, Greg penned and directed the feature-film The Independents, based on his experiences with Rich and Brian in the music business. Brian Chartrand, raised in Massachusetts, has called Phoenix home since 2003. In addition to his work with tSR, Brian has independently released numerous albums as a solo-artist, and with his Arizona-band, The Project., and regularly tours Europe. Chartrand is the creator and co-frontman of the musical revue, Live From Laurel Canyon, which celebrates music and legend of the stellar inhabitants of that enclave – a rock-n-roll neighborhood in the Hollywood Hills between the mid-1960s to the mid ‘70s.
