The Young NovelistsExternal are a Toronto-based band fronted by husband and wife Graydon James and Laura Spink. Since 2009 they have played stages across the U.S. and Canada, released three full-length albums, won numerous awards, and received continuous praise for their unmatched, effortless harmonies. Their last record, made us strangers, landed them a Canadian Folk Music Award for New/Emerging Artist, a nomination for Vocal Group of the Year, and reached top 20 on both !earshot and Stingray Music folk charts. With a sound that has been compared to everyone from The Band to ‘pre-weirdness’ Wilco, their personal mission is to create sad songs for happy people — whether that means a nostalgic ballad or an upbeat anthem. The Young Novelists’ ability to tell familiar stories with a modern folk edge make them, and their songs, instant classics.
