Full BIO - Safe As Houses

Fresh off the release of their critically acclaimed 3rd studio album, Lucky Lucky, Safe As Houses continues to push boundaries in the folk world with their genre-splicing alternative-folk sound, infused with flecks of pop and rock. Armed with a collection of youth driven anthems, this kinetic quintet has amassed a cult following, spiralling out from their hometown of Kitchener, ON, where bandmates Elliot Anton (guitar, vocals) and Bensen Carter (cello, bass, vocals), along with brothers Andrew Laughton (guitar, vocals) and Thomas Laughton (drums, vocals), laid the band's monumental foundation.

Chasing a more expansive sound, Safe As Houses enlisted Lauren Taylor (violin, vocals) to round out their signature string-centric arrangements and soften the edges of their soul-stirring harmonies.
Since their debut on the music scene in 2014 with their freshman album,The Fall of a Sparrow, and further fuelled by their follow-up releases, Hurricane (2016), and Lucky Lucky (2018), audiences and critics alike have celebrated their undeniable musical aptitude, praising their tight performances and likening them to legendary artists: "Their music follows in the footsteps of Mumford & Sons with orchestral arrangements and big builds... will leave you with goosebumps" - BAM Productions.

On the heels of their most recent release, Safe As Houses inspires a new
generation of listeners with their fresh, energetic take on the genre, while
dabbling in whimsy and nostalgia to satisfy even the most seasoned of folk
enthusiasts - "If ever there was a record that could reach several generations of roots fans all at once, this might be it" -Roots Music Canada.
With the world at their feet, 2019 promises to be a definitive year for the young band with the release of their upcoming album, Lucky Lucky Deluxe.
