Ray Elliott Band
Once there was a boy named Ray Elliott from the Rocky Mountains of Alberta right near the great divide. The mountains would speak, he would write and this was how it was to be. The boy grew to man and found he would have to leave the mountains. To the prairies he would go and this was how it was to be. He would find his home near the North Saskatchewan River Saskatoon. There he found others, they would play the music of the prairies, but the man always carried the mountains with him too. People would ask the man what music do you sing and play on your guitar? People call it folk rock or alt country the man would reply, knowing when they heard it they would have their own names for the sounds they heard. The others played pedal steel, bass, Dobro guitar, accordion and drums. Songs that change like the weather in the mountains or flow free like waves on wheat fields in the wind, nothing too complicated, simple really, something to connect with, an experience to be shared. The man was content with this. Tales of us all in this Great Lone Land, this is who we are.
Cidne Treen has been involved in music since the age of 5, when she started to play the violin. Since then, she has taken up the bass, drums, double bass, and various other instruments. Cidne is now devoted to playing the guitar and vocals, and spends all her spare time trying new ways to improve on both. Cidne’s greatest musical influences are Melissa McClelland (Toronto, ON) and Terry Hoknes (Saskatoon, SK). Cidne has one studio album, self titled “Cidne Treen” featuring Terry Hoknes on many different instruments. Cidne also plays guitar, bass, and drums on the album.
