Shivering Timbers (Akron, Ohio)
Indie Folk Pop/Rock
When starting a band, it’s good to have feedback by someone outside of the group. For Akron’s Shivering Timbers, that someone was the infant daughter of married band founders Jayson and Sarah Benn. The next outside source to recognize Shivering Timbers talents was Dan Auerbach. After Shivering Timbers played The Black Keys frontman’s birthday party, he offered to produce their debut album, We All Started in the Same Place, which was released in 2010. The Timbers met Cincinnati’s Brian Olive through Auerbach (Sarah sang on Olive’s Two of Everything LP), leading to his production of the group’s acclaimed 2012 release, Sing Sing.
