ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
(Columbus, OH) -- Any bands that would take up the challenge of bringing the dynamic flair of Phish to this region will be sharing the scene with a new jamband, SENS, a group with roots planted close to the Grateful Dead but offering a fresh new sound. SENS brings a mix of musical talent, creative vision and whimsical humor to central Ohio in a way that is exhilarating and long overdue.

The three members the group, Gwen Grimes (keyboards/vocals), Rob Chandler (guitar/vocals), and Stu Crair (percussion), have created a musical vibe that stands out among indie bands in the area. Pushing a new set list at every show, the band takes listeners with them on a magical musical tour that makes it impossible to plug them into solely one genre. Songs veer from classic rock to thrummy funk to a layered jazz riff and back again. Rob Chandler's guitar-playing dances from a bluesy weep and whine to the crunchy rip of rock chords. Gwen Grimes, a keyboard artist of soaring ability, alternately floats over the keys or pounds out the tunes in a primal demand for more sound than any mere piano key should be expected to deliver. Backed by Stu Crair's potent, thumping beat, the band lures you with its lively mix of song styles, always keeping you bolted down firmly in its rock foundation.

Seeing the band in live performance offers a chance to unhinge and drift freely across the musical landscape. Jams that first sound like a collection of flashy rambles soon evolve into tightly-paced compositions, exposing the raw underlying talent of the group. SENS has just completed their first round in the studio so keep your ears open and hold on. The results will lift you out of the routine High Street shuffle of sound-a-likes to a place that makes you feel like don't have to go any further. You've found it.

Great original songs performed by excellent musicians
Having worked with these guys in the studio, I was impressed by the complex arrangements and excellent musicianship. The songs are a blend of folk-Phish-psychedelic-Celtic influences blended into something that is uniquely their own. I still carry this one around in my car to listen to.

Simply put, this group of musicians has what our scene needs.
As a musician myself, I seek out new music and new bands whenever I get a chance. This means that I get to see the few truly great and the remaining not so great bands over time, and it’s so sweet when I see or hear something that really grabs my attention. SENS is a great example.

SENS has that hard to describe bond in their sound, a bond that holds strong between top notch musicianship, superbly crafted songs and flat out natural talent. There is a HUGE difference between a band and a band of musicians, and SENS definitely falls into the latter group.

Listening to their CD "Slide", you can hear for yourself how the members play off each other in incredibly complex ways, yet soothe your ears with high lonesome harmonies that sound so easy you wonder why everybody doesn't do this. And therein lies the slight, quiet difference that sets SENS apart. There are many bands that claim to have a unique sound, a great live show, or a can't be missed studio album. SENS actually delivers, and has the talent and sounds to take you way beyond your expectations.

What a great find.
This album is such a gem. I have seen this group live twice, and while the album doesn't capture the majic of their live show, it does showcase the multi-genre style of this unique group. I highly recommend checking it out.

Thirty minutes packed with elastic grooves and open ended spaces, tightly filled

An album for those who are sick of the crap being put out by MTV
It was so refreshing to find a group that is creating excellent music, both live and in the studio. I bought this album after seeing the group live, and I was so thrilled to find that the CD is a great representation of the group that I enjoyed watching so much. Thanks Sens for putting out tunes that are worth paying money for!

Sens brings together good vibes and great music
I received an advance copy of this CD some months ago and as most good music I posses, it was borrowed and never returned! Sens strongest attribute is their healthy sense of songwriting and great keyboard player. The songs on this disc are bouncy, upbeat and set the perfect mood for a sunny afternoon driving on the way to a music festival or lounging around at one.
