Safe as Houses – One to watch

Safe as Houses is an alternative-folk band from Kitchener-Waterloo 

I have had the pleasure of seeing these four musically gifted gentlemen four times along with Keep The Change in the past year and oh my have they grown.

Elliot Anton – Vocals, Guitar
Bensen Carter – Bass, Cello, Vocals
Andrew Laughton – Guitar, Vocals
Thomas Laughton – Drums, Vocals

Their music follows in the footsteps of Mumford & Sons, with orchestral arrangements big builds that when they are on their game (and they usually are) will leave you with goosebumps. Just over a year ago they released their debut album Sink My Boat available on itunes

For a first attempt I give them kudo’s on the work, If you find it is not what you expected…. If you thought it would be more, keep in mind that a band that plays and practices regularly will only improve. The album does not do justice to what you will experience when you see these young lads live, particularly if you are listening to it on tiny speakers with a tinny sound.

Recently they made it through to the National Top 20 on CBC Searchlight If you get a chance to see these guys live, preferably in a pub or a lounge with good acoustics I’m sure you will be blown away.

Here is a recent article from the Guelph Mercury
