// The Shuvs

“The Shuvs are all about the soft touch. Breezy and mellow but with real intent, this
record creeps up on you.” –Stylus Magazine

The Shuvs are a Toronto-based folk band whose soul-infused sound is akin to the music of Curtis Mayfield, Al Green and Van Morrison. The band is comprised of songwriter and vocalist/guitarist Rob Nicholls, drummer Richard Verdin, vocalist/percussionist Laura Anderson and bassist Jack Gunn. Nicholls’ electric acoustic guitar and jazzy chording alongside Verdin and Gunn's steady Motown rhythm section make for a stripped down and hard-hitting sound. Anderson fleshes out the symphonic and baroque dimension of the group with her sweeping harmonies that drip with the whimsy and fantasy of a young Joni Mitchell.

Their debut, self-produced album set for release on November 18th, was recorded within the walls of Toronto’s historic Coffin Factory Building. The band’s DIY attitude reflects their point of view and sound production. Constructing their own home studio, fitted with an admirable collection of analog equipment, they are dedicated to capturing a warm and roomy sound. Each track, recorded live-off-the-floor and on tape, is coloured by the openness and echo of the building’s interior.
