The Sadies are Dallas and Travis Good (both on guitars), Sean Dean (upright bass) and Mike Belitsky (drums). With a 15 year career, 10 albums, countless colaborations (and more albums), the band is finally getting the overdue credit they deserve. This year saw the band touring Canada, Europe, the UK and the US, release their strongest album to date (Darker Circles), make the short list of the Polaris Music Prize and find their name on several top 10 lists including the #1 spot as the Folk & Country Album of the Year in Exclaim Magazine. Are they tired? No way! The band is gearing up for more touring starting in January and makes a stop in Guelph where they have been performing since 1996.
Darker Circles is the follow-up to The Sadies’ acclaimed last album Country Club (feat. John Doe) and sees guitarist brothers Dallas and Travis Good, drummer Mike Belitsky and bassist Sean Dean again pair with legendary Jayhawk and sought-after producer Gary Louris. Furthering the focused songwriting and recording aspirations reached on New Seasons, The Sadies bring their signature blend of country, psychedelic, rock and surf into rifle-scope focus on Darker Circles, further underscoring their reputations as musicians’ musicians. Always at the top of the list when discussing musical chops and live intensity, The Sadies are now more intent than ever on making their mark as songwriters.
"As well-received as their records have been, and as legendary as their live shows are, it’s their knack for jumping in gracefully as the backing band for other musicians that forms a big part of their unique identity. They’ve provided the rock-solid, earthy backbone for a huge and diverse list of prestigious performers including Neko Case, Neil Young, Gord Downie, Buffy Saint-Marie, Andre Williams and, most unexpectedly, Margaret Atwood."
