THE GREAT NOVEL - Band whose music speaks volumes.

Folks musicians with a twist take Montreal's final by storm.



This five piece from Montreal lay in their timeless style, the foundation for legendary folk music.  The Great Novel are a remarkable band, particularly live, thanks to their stirring, complex, partly improvised compositions and the interplay between mandolin, upright bass and guitar.  A genre which is not often pursued by young musicians today, The Great Novel’s country folk is a breath of fresh air in any battle of the bands type event. The lead vocals are strong and the female harmonies, perfectly worked into the whole of the song, invoke just the right amount of a folksy atmosphere. Placing second in Montreal’s final last summer, The Great Novel prove that their music is what the crowd wants to hear. Listening to Eyes n’ Legs one gets a good feel for what these guys are all about. I found the musical interludes to be woven wonderfully into the fabric of the song, entwined artfully with the lyrics. The sound of the mandolin as the song fades captures the spirit of what these talented musicians are trying go accomplish with their music.
