"Dirty Linen Review"

"...The tune sets on their high-energy concert disc, Live, feature some wonderfully wild and melodic interplay between fiddler Colleen, who plays with an aggressive, bow-bouncing style reminiscent of Eileen Ivers, and pianist Erin, whose rapid-fire keyboard style is somewhere between boogie and Cape Breton dancehall. Heather's bass...anchor(s) the rhythm...The sisters are capable singers too, although the songs here tend more toward the pop/country end of things. "

"Lünen, Germany 2009"

"Although the audience was barely reserved with the first two groups and showered the musicians with applause, it went off with the Canadian group "Searsons". The spectators were carried away by the cool rhythms, the roaring percussion, the funky guitar sounds and electric bass sounds. Above all, Colleen Searson turned out to be a true devil's violinist. She played her Fiddle so that the bow threatened to glow."

"Ottawa Valley Invasion, December 2009"

For Irish generation to generation it goes, with the ripples going a little wider each time, reaching new heights, new locales, a quiet little invasion of the mind and the music, met with open arms, whose energy is unmistakable and undiminished, just like Searson.

With talent that remains full of fierce energy, Searson continues to astound their audiences with unguarded sincerity in their vocals, raw fiddling and ferocious stepdancing. Searson has been taking North America and Europe by storm, performing an average of 150 shows a year. Growing up in the Ottawa Valley, Ontario, Canada, Erin, Heather and Colleen Searson began performing for audiences at a young age. Each sister was filled with an appreciation of music at an early age and from this, developed a contemporary style of high energy, roots, celtic, country and pop, a sound they are known and loved for. The multi-talented sisters play a variety of instruments and are all expert step dancers. Erin plays a boogie style of piano, organ, and mandolin. Colleen is on fiddle and joins Erin in the lead vocals with Heather on bass. Rounding out the live show they are joined by Mary Gellner on drums and percussion.
From private events, to clubs, theatres and festivals, touring originally began in Ontario and has now grown to include North America and Europe.

Searson has recorded five albums in their illustrious career. A Different kind of Light (2008), Searson Live (2005), Follow (2004), House Party (2002), and finally their newest addition Ignite ( fall 2009). Ignite encompasses Searson’s love of all music. All original, these tracks contain flavours from the Ottawa Valley, Country and Blues stylings, something Searson wanted to showcase in an instrumental album. Ignite was recorded at French Kiss Studios in the Ottawa Valley and produced by Jordon Zadorozny (Blinker the Star, Melissa Auf Der Maur). Recording Ignite gave the band a chance to bring in many different sounds including the banjo and the dobro. Recording Ignite gave Searson a chance to be creative and have fun with their music. A Different Kind of Light compliments the instrumental album with twelve tracks of original vocals written by these three sisters. After completing the Searson Live album, "We wanted to showcase the band's adventurous spirit for live music," said Colleen. "The resulting album is something we are all proud of."

Never road weary, Searson has a relentless tour schedule ahead. "Touring and performing our original music for live audiences is the best reward we could get for years of music lessons and practicing," said Erin. "Touring with my sisters has given us a lifetime of memories that we could never imagine living without."
