The Spring Standards
Skyflight Productions presents The Spring Standards on Saturday February 18, 2012 at the Albert S. George Youth Center at Barnesville Memorial Park in Barnesville, OH. The Spring Standards are an energetic force of three-part harmony circling over a rock n' roll sound with an old country aftertaste. From small towns to big cities, they explode on stage with spirit, spontaneity, and a style all their own. They are, in no particular order: James Cleare, James Smith and Heather Robb. Each member of the band is a songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, and they use their strengths as a trio to create a sound that listeners might expect from a band twice their size. With an emphasis on three-part harmony and a variety of instrumental switching, their range and energy make each live show a unique event.

In fact, the band's performance set-up is as distinctive as their sound: They take a drum kit and break it up among the three of them, and then they set up along the front of the stage. So, whoever is playing bass (James and James alternate between bass and guitar,) is also stepping on a kick drum and whoever is playing guitar is also stepping on the high hat (and sometimes playing harmonica simultaneously). Heather, in the middle, switches between melodica, keys, glockenspiel and snare drum, often playing several at a time. And even with all this going on, their harmonies are astounding.

They released their debut LP in 2010 called Would Things Be Different (produced by Bryce Goggin - Pavement, Akron/Family, etc), and their debut EP released in late 2008 was produced by Rhett Miller of the Old97s. They've toured all around the country with the likes of Squeeze, The Old 97s, Marc Broussard, The Clarks, Stephen Kellogg & The Sixers, Ha Ha Tonka and Meg + Dia. They've also appeared on Mountain Stage/NPR, Conan O'Brien, and have been featured on WRXP's Holiday Extravaganza.
