ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Push3 weaves voice and cello through layers of acoustic guitar, groove bass, and world beat percussion. Folk and classical roots are eclipsed by world, pop, groove, and soundscape influences. Here, Melanie Sereda's electric and acoustic cellos replace the traditional lead guitar and wind around Kathryn Sutherland's lush vocals. Cello and voice are used in unexpected ways with percussive words and whispers and ghostly cello harmonics and slides.

Arrangements explore the intimacy of voice and cello and explode with the verve of a full band. Roey Shemesh's bass churns underneath the vocal and cello counterpoint adding groove while Former Cordes en Folie percussionist Steve Lazin brings sounds from the globe with an array of percussion instruments, rhythms and tones. Songs vary from slinky mission impossible style pop, Indonesian Gamelan, Middle Eastern dance, to an acoustic orchestral influenced rant.

"An innovative, expressive and ultimately rewarding challenge for new music fans."
Cal Koat, Producer of 'World Beats', M Channel, Vancouver


"The charm of the release is that it seems like something we haven't heard before."

Push 3, Blue Chair (Independent)
By mike usinger

Push 3 consists of two women who occasionally sound as if their lifetime ambition is a main-stage slot at the Vancouver Folk Music Festival. And even though guitar-wielding, Commercial Drive friendly duos aren't exactly notorious for breaking musical boundaries, Blue Chair is, more often than not, a wonderfully strange record. The charm of the release is that it seems like something we haven't heard before. Realizing the world doesn't need another Indigo Girls, Melanie Sereda and Kathryn Sutherland come off as Tom Waits's slightly less-weird cousins on tracks like the baleful "Mrs. X" and the exotic, Middle East­inspired instrumental "Electric Nomad". What makes the group refreshingly unique is that Sutherland's jazzy vocals and acoustic-guitar work are married with mournful acoustic and ornate electric cello, both played by Sereda. It's the latter's work that turns straight-ahead coffeehouse tunes like "True" and "Complete" into creations that burn with an eerie beauty. Throw into the mix a supporting cast playing everything from djembe to rebollo to kalimba, and you've got a two-piece that, refreshingly, is determined to push folk in exciting new directions.
