Summersett is a chamber-pop-folk band sprung from the stages of the Montreal theatre scene - set to release its second album this Spring. Summersett performs alternately as a piano / vocal duo or, at full strength, an eight-piece ensemble; lifted by bass and drums, releasing into lush string and radiant vocal arrangements. Friends at the End of the House builds upon the band’s signature earthy intimacy, brushing the worlds of classical music, cabaret and americana.
