Singer-songwriter Collette Savard and her band The Savants: Rebecca Campbell, Martin Worthy, Tim Posgate, Megan Worthy, John Zytaruk. With her palette of acoustic folk instruments, Collette whittles out of her imagination beautiful song gems. She brings them to you wrapped in the exciting package of her band of seasoned masters.
Think Fleetwood Mac and Steely Dan wandering through the back-woods and that will give you an idea of their sound. Collette’s unique songwriting reflects Lucinda Williams’ heart and Joni Mitchell’s whimsey but has a charm that cannot be described. The self titled album: Collette Savard and The Savants released January, 2018 is described by Exclaim magazine as “… a full and well-produced sound that fuses folk, jazz and pop strains in a hybrid that sounds like something you could have heard on ’70s AM radio.” Bob Mersereau wrires: “This is what happens when the right band meets the right songs.”
