Snake River began as a home for singer/multi-instrumentalist, Christopher Sleightholm (The Lonesome Weekends) to release his homespun psychedelic-leaning recordings.
After a jaunt through western Canada as a touring member of The Besnard Lakes side-project, The Soft Province, Sleigtholm decided to expand Snake River, asking members of the band to perform with him. In came veterans John De Gennaro (Geronimo, ex-Despistado) on guitar, Dustin Gamracy (Spoils) on drums, and Whistlin’ Jeff M on bass. https://www.facebook.com/SnakeRiverMtn/
