Nashville Folk Ensemble Seryn Plays Twice in NYC This Week

April 20th, 2015

With their wide range of instruments, layered harmonies and energetic live performances, the folk ensemble Seryn, founded in a college town in North Texas in 2010, makes the kind of winning Americana-tinged pop music that has won them comparisons to the likes of Mumford & Sons and the Low Anthem. Last year Trenton Wheeler (vocals and ukulele), Nathan Allen (guitar and vocals), Aaron Stoner (bass and vocals), Jenny Moscoso (vocals, guitar and banjo), Jordan Rochefort (drums) and Scarlett Deering (violin and vocals) left small-town Denton, Texas, for Music City—Nashville—for better opportunities. And earlier this year, Seryn (above, doing “Disappear”) released their second full-length, Shadow Shows (stream it below). And Paste magazine weighed in: “Distilling Shadow Shows to its simplest folk pop form doesn’t represent the album fully. Rather, Seryn returns with a conceptual record that requires more than a cursory listen to appreciate its sonic nuances and musical juxtapositions.” The six-piece lands in New York City for two shows this week, alongside Corey James Bost and Great Caesar, tomorrow night at Mercury Lounge and with Conveyor and Bost again on Friday at Rough Trade NYC.
