Rich and Greg first started collaborating writing songs for Rich's 2004 Geffen Records debut -- a CD that spawned Rich's single "I'm on my way", featured on the multi-platinum Shrek 2 soundtrack. Rich has released four solo albums and written music for many high-profile film and television projects. Hailed by Performing Songwriter Magazine as "a magnetic writer and performer", Greg Naughton's debut indie-release 'Demogogue & the Sun Songs' was co-produced by late grammy-winning recording artist Phoebe Snow. Also an accomplished actor and director, Greg wrote and directed the soon to-be-released feature-film THE INDEPENDENTS based on his experiences with Rich and Brian in the music business. Brian Chartrand grew up in MA, but has called Phoenix, AZ home since 2003. In addition to his work with tSR, Brian has independently released numerous albums as a solo-artist and with his AZ band "The Project" and regularly tours in Europe. He is the creator and co-frontman of the touring musical review "Live From Laurel Canyon", which celebrates the songs and legendary stories of artists who lived in Laurel Canyon, a rock-n-roll neighborhood in the Hollywood Hills, between 1965 and 1976.
After that first jam-session in 2008, Rich, Greg, and Brian began writing and recording together during breaks in each of their solo touring. Eventually they played these new songs for producer Andy Zulla (who has since collaborated with the band on most of their projects) and together they set about recording tSR’s debut CD “Laurel & Sunset”. 3 Studio albums, 1 Live DVD and a Feature Film later, The Sweet Remains music has won fans all over the globe and been featured in commercials, feature films, television and been covered by numerous artists. They continue to delight audiences, touring regularly throughout North America and Europe with dynamic live-shows that range from simple core-trio acoustic sets to 6-piece full-band line-ups.
