Basset is an all-acoustic group from Toronto admired for their “fresh and distinct sound”. Co-writers Yasmine Shelton and Sam Clark draw on folk traditions from both sides of the pond, with songs that will take you from a beekeeper’s fields to the haunted basement of a second hand store. Young and imaginative, their inventiveness is on full display in their use of fiddle, harmony, and Shelton’s commanding lead vocals. From tender ballads to driving blues, Basset’s style has been called “cinematic” and “full of timeless heart”.

Yasmine and Sam met at university in 2016 while studying philosophy, and bonded over their shared love of creative writing and traditional music from America and the UK. By the time they left school, they had landed a spot at the Summerfolk festival in 2018, and were quickly swept into a life of music. Since then, they have performed across Ontario including The Cameron House, Lee’s Palace, and Heartwood in Owen Sound, alongside NEFE, The Lifers, The Pairs, and more. They released their debut EP in June 2019, recorded in the snowy woods of Grey County and funded by a FACTOR grant, with features in Music Talks and Indiesource. They are preparing to release their debut LP in spring 2022 and are booking tours and showcases across Canada and the US.
