Edmonton folk rock trio trio Scenic Route to Alaska sound like the Prairies.
Even frontman Trevor Mann doesn’t know what that means, but they will show audiences at the Owl Acoustic Lounge, Saturday, April 18.
“ We’re not good at labeling ourselves. But we were in Winnipeg and somebody came up and said, you guys sound like the Prairies. You sound like where you come from. I don’t know what that means, but we’ll take it,” Mann said, waking up from a nap in the back seat of the band’s van on the way back from Jasper.
“ It’s funny how each province has their own sound. We played with a Toronto band, and you can hear it,” he continued. I supposed you could call us indie- folk rock,” he said adding the band includes life long friends, bassist Murray Wood, who Mann has known since he was five and drummer Shea Connor, who he has known since he was 11.
They are going to tour Germany in May, but before that they are hoping for a good show in Lethbridge.
“ We were first there two years ago, but it was just me and the drummer. It was at the Slice on a Monday night and the place definitely wasn’t bouncing,” he said.
“But now our bass player is back with us,” he said.
