The Houseplants

Thursday night at the BIAF kicked off with a band that I have been in contact with for a few weeks, but had yet to see live. Although they are 'officially' a two piece, The Houseplants invited some of their musically-inclined friends to join them on stage, which added an accordion and stand-up bass to the equation. It was then that my absolute favourite lyric of the festival was uttered, the "I don't give a Sophie B. Hawkins about that" line, from their song "Doctor Doom".

Hopefully I'm not the only one who finds that funny…

While a specific genre is hard to pinpoint (as the songs ranged in influence from blues to folk to jazz) the music was incredibly tight, and absolutely worth checking out. They are playing two dates in March in Toronto.

The Houseplants - Livingroom
Recorded at The Rogue Studio, Toronto - 2007

Perry Joseph and Gordon Shawcross are The Houseplants, good friends, and a large part of the infrastructure in the Mono Cliffs musical hub. This new collaboration of original music was meticulously crafted. A must own, these two exceptional poets have created stories, complete with highs and lows, out of every song. Jazz and pop influenced, the songs are rounded out by a guest list of incredibly talented musical friends, including Kevin Breit and Sarah McEachern. Favourite tracks: Five Easy Pieces and Honey Believe Me. - In The Hills Magazine



...One of the biggest surprises for me (other than the guy in the lobby playing tuba in his underwear) was the unassumingly talented "The Houseplants", a group of folk musicians who seemed like they could be your friendly, talented next door neighbours. Their sweet soothing set felt like honey being poured into my ears as they captured the attention of the entire audience.
