Portrait of Searson


About Searson

Eganville, Canada

With talent that remains full of fierce energy, Searson continues to astound their audi-
ences 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 contem-
porary 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, a talented and passionate musician 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 origi-
nal, 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 compli-
ments 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 perform-
ing 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.”
