Seafair was recently voted “Best Band” by readers of the popular weekly publication, Cleveland Scene.
Fresh off a series of shows at SXSW, Seafair is prepping to release their debut LP ‘The Querencia’ on May 26. The band has also announced a string of shows in April and May including a hometown record release show at the Grog Shop on May 23.
Seafair formed in late 2012, and has been turning heads and confusing critics who want to place the sextet into a carefully constructed box. The thing is, with six musicians whose backgrounds range from classically trained to punk rock roots, the band can’t be pigeonholed by genre.
From the heavy hitting of drummer Ryan Kelly to the acrobatic guitar and bass lines of Micheal Flaherty and Joshua Riehl, the band builds a soundscape that is completely their own. But it is this, with the combination of the trio of women at the bands epicenter, that make this ensemble more than your typical indie-rock band. Andrea Belding Elson and Tara Hanish blend precise and poignant violin and cello voices amidst the band’s sound, while the presence and strength of frontwoman Chayla Hope makes the experience of seeing Seafair live one that will not soon be forgotten.
