“His soothing voice and talent with the guitar in “Brother James” promises a beautiful EP to look forward to.”
“Three Strands is sort of his own Walden Pond, his cabin in the woods where he goes to break things down and get back to basics with a more stripped-down sound.”
“What makes the release particularly exciting is Cox’s willingness to experiment, using folk as the foundation to create dynamic soundscapes that borrow from several styles.”
Three Strands is a folk/Americana project that was started by Lancaster, PA, based singer/songwriter, Sean Cox, in the winter of 2016.
After a five year period fronting the Philadelphia, PA, based folk/rock quintet, The Band of Rivals, Sean began working on a small collection of the more narrative, delicate songs that would bring Three Strands to fruition.
In the early spring of 2017, He started pre-production on a debut EP title "Letters to the Light", which was released in July 2017. Over the last year he has presented these songs to audiences at 65 different live shows up and down the east coast.
Through honest and simplistic arrangements and strong influences from the American folk revival, as well as, early gospel and blues traditions, Three Strands exists to dredge those deep waters in search for the strands that unite us all.
