The Sylvia Platters

since circa 2013
The Sylvia Platters are a four-piece college rock and power pop outfit hailing from all corners of BC's Fraser Valley. Their home-made, late-2015 debut record, Make Glad the Day, has drawn comparisons to Weezer, Belle and Sebastian, and The Smiths. Graypoint Owl writes that Make Glad the Day, "stays refreshing and fun across the breadth of its swiftly accelerating track list, digging catchy hooks deep into the listener while displaying a distinctly geeky, literarily inclined wit." The album subsequently reached #32 on the earshot! college and community radio charts.

While the Platters are a relatively new project, its members have a long history together and playing music in other bands. That experience translates into a compelling live act that Glenn Ess of The Cascade calls, "vibrant and endlessly entertaining."

On the heels of the forthcoming vinyl release of Make Glad the Day, The Sylvia Platters plan to spend 2016 reaching new audiences across Western Canada.

The Sylvia Platters are Luke Agawin, Simon Tressel, Nick Ubels and Tim Ubels.
