Basset is a rising all-acoustic group from Toronto. The band is fronted by vocalist Yasmine Shelton and songwriter/musician Sam Clark, along with brothers Aaron and Noah Philipp-Muller.
While they draw on folk traditions from both sides of the pond with their heavy use of fiddle, mandolin and cello, their original tunes also take inspiration from old jazz and soul (hear Shelton’s powerfully bluesy vocals), 50s and 60s rock, and their shared classical background. Their inventive style has earned comparisons to The Punch Brothers, Belle and Sebastien, and Of Monsters and Men.
Basset tends to gather around a single microphone for their live shows, filling the room with their infectious love for each other and the music they play. There’s never a dull moment between tunes either, as audiences get a glimpse into the charming – and at times ridiculous – antics of these four friends.
