Prairials release self titled debut album and commence national tour on May 16



They may be based out of the thriving metropolis of Toronto but Prairials was born in the prairies of Sasketchewan, by the rivers of the Canadian border. Formed by brothers Jesse and Jacob Read, their folk rock style combines an eclectic mix of sonic elements from guitars, banjos and keyboards to make every song an experience in itself, memorable and enticing.


On May 16th Prairials will both release their much anticipated self-titled debut album and commence their  28 date tour across their native Canada. They will perform at the Black Swan Tavern in Toronto before embarking on an ambitious coast to coast journey, travelling over 10,000km to share their music and stories with the nation.


The brothers had produced music together in the past but the pair each  left their home town to pursue their own individual musical ambitions before they were reunited last year. Prairials marks the triumphant reunion of these two talented artists, with each of the Read brothers having three years to develop and explore their own unique styles. On their debut album the brothers have combined their considerable musical talents with a number of international artists, working with collaborators from Denmark to Palestine. Stay tuned for more from this enormously talented duo, we’re sure you’re going to see a lot more of them.




“The music reminds me of Beck!  Not NEW Beck, where he’s gone all electro-d out and plays his Gameboy live Beck – but the one that existed before all that…pre-“Loser” days and all….  After thorough listens to the full album – it really feels like there’s a conscious attempt to approach this your own way; that each track has its own separate and organic life.” -Sleeping Bag Studios
