Inlet Sound have announced their decision to part ways. The Toronto-based folk force are saying goodbye with a two song EP July / Storm Chaser, released today, Tuesday 21 Aprila.
In an open letter to their fans, the band speak about how life and new adventures have led Inlet Sound to say farewell.
“As life has intensified on many fronts for each of us – with school, work, goals, plans, and people – we felt it was best at this point to move onto our own individual projects and aspirations. As a parting gift, we’ve put together a 2-song EP titled July / Storm Chaser that we’ve slowly built over the last year between Toronto, Guelph, Kingston, Montreal and Berlin and with the help of some great people in our lives. The songs will be available for free download on our website and the gamut of online music sources April 21st.
We owe an incredible debt of gratitude to all of the people who allowed us to exist as a band over the last few years: our producer and jack-of-all-trades Laurence Currie; our extended band family of musicians who contributed to many recordings and live-shows – Kate MacLean, Curtis Murphy, Johnny Rowe, Jamie March, Rob McLaren, Andrew Prine, Ian Russell and Matt Cramp; our behind-the-scenes team Matt Fisher, Joanne Setterington, Beth Cavanagh, and many more; our amazing friends and family for constant support and positive reinforcement; and of course all of the music lovers out there who bought our records, came out to shows, and gave meaning to our sweaty uncoordinated on-stage dance moves.”
It’s a heartfelt and fond farewell from Inlet Sound, who are one of the nicest and most humble bands that I have met in over a decade of music journalism. I am still grateful for the role the group played when they helped out by joining the line-up at Soupstock concert in 2012, which was a truly inspiring day for music and community in Toronto. “July” and “Storm Chaser” are two swell songs, rich with the group’s atmospheric and alluring sound.
