THE SWEET REMAINS is the unusual band on today’s music scene to be headed by 3 gifted singer-songwriters, each of whom contribute to the writing and 3-part harmonies that define the band’s sound. They are also the very rare independent band to claim over 38 MILLION Spotify plays world-wide (and counting).

However, it is their lush harmonies, that distinguish tSR from the throngs of guitar-toting troubadours and harken back to super-groups of the 60’s and 70’s like

Their effort in those early days propelled The Waifs to multiple ARIA awards, platinum albums, and successful tours internationally, even opening for Bob Dylan’s North American and Australian Tours in 2003. An easy chemistry, and profound depth of songwriting talent have bound the trio as The Waifs.
In January 2015, with their regular rhythm section, drummer Dave Ross Macdonald and bassist Ben Franz, The Waifs entered the studio in Byron Bay, with producer Nick DiDia (Bruce Springsteen, Rage
