"Keep Your Heart Strong"

"The band starts to play, and they sound amazing- from this auditory vantage point, its this beautiful, overwhelming cacophony of instruments and voices, so wildly euphoric I can hardly stand it." -Amy Jones, pg 29 - The Walleye: Arts & Culture Alternative (NOV 2013)

"Spotlight on the Greenbank Trio"

"With great influences, great songs and a great passion for music, it’s easy to see why so many people have fallen in love with The Greenbank Trio." - Fresh Print Magazine (AUG 2013)

"The Greenbank Trio"

"...a new group with potential."

"...a feel-good folk rock romp" - (JUN 2012)

"Durham band's sound very Canadian, eh"

"Musically, the band doesn't need to change a thing, drawing on a rich tradition of Canadian music and creating a sound all their own."

- Whats On

"Three Plus One"

"a work-ethic and musical knowledge you can hear"

"harmony... four-part voices that almost sound as though they were recorded 40 years ago."

"they deserve to be heard."

- TB Newswatch


Greenbank Trio (EP 2012)

Into the Wind (EP 2013)



     They've been described as "that band from Almost Famous" and referred to as "denim disasters" but through thick and thin Thunder Bay folk-rockers Greenbank are always anything but boring. With their rag-tag band in tow, songwriters Jimmy Breslin and Craig Smyth have been winning over audiences across the country with their unique brand of down-home harmony infused old school folk-rock since their start in 2013.

     The band's first album Money Machine (2015), a sarcastic observation our constant need to always put money first hit the number one spot on Thunder Bay radio station CILU 102.1's top 20 list and stayed there for five weeks following its release. The co-headlined Money Machine release tour with Nick Sherman included 35 performances across Canada with notable stops at the Pan Am Games, Ottawa Blues Festival, Live From the Rock Folk Festival and the Harmony of Nations Festival. The first single 'Live Off The Land' has been played nationally on CBC Radio 1."

"Sharp harmonies, great lyrics, and enough energy to power a medium-sized town like Kansas City." -Elmore Magazine (New York)

"I found myself singing along almost immediately" -Canadian Beats (Ottawa)

"With great influences, great songs and a great passion for music, it’s easy to see why so many people have fallen in love with Greenbank." -Fresh Print Magazine (Toronto)
