It’s that word–chemistry–that gets closest to encapsulating the work of Summersett. Every facet of the band’s make-up expresses some version of it...” Yul.buzz /Rory Mccluckie
“This band evokes a sense of contemporary pop and folk as much as that of cabaret, magic and music halls typical of Paris in the roaring twenties.” - Barbara Ford/ Charpo

Nick and Patricia draw on their backgrounds in theatre to capture mood and story, shaping songs from the perspective of playwright and actor. Their sound is informed by a love of classical music, classic rock, and their mutual profession of theatre- through which they met and formed a creative and romantic partnership nine years ago. After collaborating on everything from film to ice theatre to cabaret, a band emerged in 2012 when the duo met their bassist Pierre Gaudreault and performed in public for the first time under the moniker Summersett Fred.
