Seneko may be from Connecticut, but this is Americana-country-style music in the finest traditions. Seneko just released a self-titled debut EP that is worthy of a good, long listen.
The lead song off the album is called “Blindsider,” an upbeat tune; Check out the video:
Powered by the rich lead vocals of Stan Olshefski, Seneko encompasses an emotional range. Olshefski’s voice is soothing, melodic and stands out from the rest.
On acoustic guitar is JT Corenflos, on electric guitar is Pat Buchanan, on bass and backing vocals is Kyle Scholten; on keyboards is Mike Rojas and on drums is Paul Scholten.
Seneko was produced by Paul Scholten, engineered by Nick “Ace” Lutz and Paul Scholten, the mix engineer is Mike Purcell.
Seneko was recorded and mixed at County Q in Nashville.
Olshefski has been writing and pitching primarily country songs for six years but his true love is Indie-Pop, so he decided to write and record his own EP. A follow up is due out this spring.
Our favorites on the record are “Circle Round,” “Angels in Kind” and “Down on Delevan,” mainly because of the upbeat tempo. But all the songs have something appealing, particularly if you’re into the country-alt scene.
