The Young Novelists (duo)

Graydon & Laura

Johnny & June meets Simon & Garfunkel – Toronto based roots band The Young Novelists have had a busy year. Fronted by husband and wife duo Graydon James and Laura Spink, they are known for their beautiful harmonies and songs culled from their small-town roots. Riding the buzz created by the release of their second full-length album, ‘made us strangers‘ in April 2015, they had a summer of Canadian and US festival appearances, including winning the 2015 Grassy Hill Songwriting Competition at the Connecticut Folk Festival. Graydon was the 2015 recipient of the Ontario Art Council’s Colleen Peterson Songwriting award, and the band recently returned from Edmonton where they won the 2015 Canadian Folk Music Award for New/Emerging Artist of the Year.
