Shivering Timbers, led by husband and wife Jayson and Sarah Benn (with Brad Thorla or David Marchione on drums) are classics in that great Akron tradition: they don't fit into any mold but their own. Sarah is a captivating singer -- part P.J. Harvey, part Patsy Cline, while the nuanced howl of Jayson's guitar work is the perfect mate to her sultry vocals. What's more difficult to describe is the mood they create, which can, at times, entrance and haunt the audience, while in the next breath, invite them into a whimsical, foot-stomping play land. With a combined musical background encompassing everything from punk rock to gospel, blues to classical, Shivering Timbers have crafted a sound that is at once deeply personal, yet broadly appealing.
Fellow Akronite Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys was moved enough to produce their debut album, We All Started In The Same Place, released December 2010. Through the generous support of fans during a 30-day Kickstarter campaign, funds were raised to produce a second album, Sing Sing, which will be released September 4, 2012.
