Stolen Silver is the musical culmination of a decade-long friendship between songwriters Levi Britton and Dan Myers. It’s a union that dates back to their days as roommates in Chicago’s Logan Square neighborhood, one that entails a history as previous touring bandmates, collaborators and, most importantly, singers. Their voices are instruments, seemingly effortless and vital to their mutual craft. On their 2011 self-titled EP co-produced with John Ovnik, their styles swerve along a spectrum that spans from Indie-Folk to Americana, from Pop-Rock to more explorative soundtrack moments where the spaces in the songs are equally important to their narrative, undoubtedly due to Myers’ work as a film composer. Their sound and catalog has steadily evolved, as has their lineup. Since their initial vision of a folk duo, they’ve expanded to a full six-piece assembly, a collection of seasoned multi-instrumentalists and drummers comprised of guitarist/vocalist Christopher Sterr, bassist John Paul, and drummer/percussionists Jonathan Tornga and Shawn Rios. This latest chapter takes them into unfamiliar territory both in the studio and on the stage, where ideas are fresh and nothing is left unattempted. Half of the band resides in Chicago while the other hails from Traverse City, Michigan- a circumstance that forces them out on the road while leaving plenty of room for both immediacy and intimacy to take shape.
