From their website:
Three Strands is a project started by Lancaster-based singer/songwriter Sean Cox in the winter of 2016. After a five year tenure fronting the Philadelphia-based folk/rock quintet “The Band of Rivals”, He began working on a small collection of songs that, due to their more delicate and narrative nature, fell outside his then band’s sound.
In the early spring of 2017, He began pre-production on a debut EP under the moniker Three Strands. It was during this time that The Band of Rivals disbanded which allowed Sean to fully focus on this new project.
The debut EP titled “Letters to the Light” was released in July, 2017 and is populated with tales of loss, love and ultimate redemption set against honest and simplistic arrangements. The music draws heavily from the American Folk revival as well as early gospel and blues traditions.
