Meet the Seavers

MEET THE SEAVERS (MTS) brings Nashville a new genre of music called “MERGE”.

A potent concoction of Jazz, odd time signatures and unusual changes wrapped around an ingenious lyric.

Their music has been called brilliant, ambitious and mischievously clever.

Having a reputation for a “thoroughly non-Nashville show”, the Nashville scene calls MTS: “The closet thing Nashville has to Vaudeville.”

“You Don’t Want To Tango With The Inquisition” is their first full length release. It was recorded in East Nashville and features a full band comprised of well-known Nashville musicians. Included on the recording are several compositions from their musical comedy about the Spanish Inquisition entitled “Throwing Stones At The Sun”.

MTS is currently filming a television show for Channel 19 which is entitled “Meet the Seavers”. The show will feature their music along with short comedic skits, various Composers and interviews with local individuals.

The group did 40+ performances in 2012 at numerous clubs, Festivals and museums in and around the greater Nashville area. Depending on the venue, MTS performs as a duo with only Upright Bass and Vocals or with a larger accompaniment consisting of Drums, Piano, Horn section and the occasional Theremin. Their set-list is 95% original music composed by Jace K. Seavers.
