Sugar in the Raw

by Meet the Seavers

Considered by many to be a new genre of music. An unusual and creative album featuring unique compositions couched with cerebral lyrics. The combination of swinging upright bass and vocals only is arresting in its boldness.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Husband-and-wife duo Jace Seavers and Dorothy Gilmore-Seavers have taken the stripped-down approach about as far as it can go: upright bass, a few finger snaps and a couple of human voices. With Dorothy’s sultry singing and Jace’s slinky bass lines and supporting vocals, the duo weave a sound somewhere between old-school swing and film-noir jazz. Add in their theatrical attire and stage antics, and Meet the Seavers performances become the closest thing Nashville has to a vintage vaudeville act. Highlights from their debut album Sugar in the Raw include “Give Me Flame!” (which recalls Peggy Lee’s version of “Fever”) and “The Cruelty You Flaunt,” a dose of sinister circus music that would have been perfect for Sweeney Todd. If David Lynch is shooting a carnival midway scene and needs a supporting act in the fire-swallowing tent, he need look no further. And any band whose name is the title of a Growing Pains episode (Season 6, episode 21) gets bonus points in our book — even though Dorothy and Jace say they’ve never seen the show
Jack Silverman - Nashville Scene

Seavers is an ambitious songwriter not afraid to drop mythic, literary and historic references. No simple-June clichés for him. He’s a songwriter unwilling to restrict himself to fawning lyrics and instead takes the existence of God, over a shuffle beat no less. He’s out to make a point. Seavers is a jazz male vocalist worth listening to.
-CD Ring

Seavers has achieved the unthinkable- a jazz album with insightful lyrics as well as great music.
-Adam Flowers Murfreesboro Pulse

This is a jazz record for people who hate jazz.
