 The Kaslo, B.C. based duo of Sheree Plett and Jeremy Eisenhauer are visiting Lethbridge in the middle of a tour of B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba in support of their debut CD as a duo which they recorded in Nashville with renown producer Steve Dawson, who immediately released it on his record label Black Hen Records.

“We think it captures how we play live,” said Jeremy Eisenhauer, who has been playing with his wife, Sheree Platt for the past 12 years on their solo projects.

“It was great. Steve really just let us play. He didn’t multi-track us, it was really enjoyable,“ he said, adding Dawson added some steel guitar and  some Nashville session musicians also added a few extra flavours.
 They have no plans to tour  with Dawson.
“We’d love to, but he’s so busy,” he said.
“The Road We Once Knew” is the first time they have recorded a CD as a duo.
They did a Kickstarter crowdfunding  program to finance the CD and record with Dawson.

“It]s been received well. It’s getting played on CBC. We did a Kickstarter for it so a lot of our fans  supported it and knew what to expect
The married folk duo recently moved from the bustling metropolis of Vancouver to the more laid back small town of Kaslo, B.C. nine hours away, which inspired them to start actually writing songs together.


“We lived in Vancouver for six or seven years and there is a lot of music happening there. it’s really cut throat,” he said adding the couple enjoy the slower pace of Kaslo.

“It’s a lot less stressful. When we play here, people are happy to see us. It‘s just a lot more fun,” he chuckled, adding Kaslo is also a good place to run his carpentry business.
He immediately fell in love with Plett’s voice the first time he heard here. He fell in love with her after endless touring.

“I really love Sheree’s voice. We were both born and bred on music. I play the guitar and banjo and sing and she plays guitar and sing,” he said.

“We want to take traditional folk music  and incorporate other influences, but keep things simple,” he said adding relentless touring has become a family passion as they are bringing their three kids on the road with them.
“They’re seven, five and two, so they don’t play yet. It’s fun to just drive with them,” he said.
 The Eisenhauers play the Slice, Monday, May 29. there is a five dollar cover for the show.
