Thistle is a rolling, quick-paced acoustic electric country/rock band with stripped-down, catchy rhythms, and hooks that dig deep. The five-piece band comes from Spruce Grove and is comprised of Trevor Henson, Henry Geerts, Tania Ribeiro, Jason Frey, and Kevin Frey. Diverse influences from across the musical spectrum give Thistle a unique sound and style.
Kevin Frey (vocals, guitar) has been a mainstay on the local music scene as a solo performer since 2013. Jason Frey (drums) and Trevor Henson (bass) have played music together since 1999, and were the founding members of a heavy metal band. Jason and Trevor joined Kevin in September of 2015 to form Thistle. Steve Findlay (guitar) joined the three in March of 2016 to help fill out the sound. In December 2016 Tania Ribeiro joined the group. Tania brings experience singing on Broadway Stages in Nashville. Tania boosts Thistle’s sound with great harmonies and strong lead vocals, and brings considerable song writing experience to the band’s original songs. Steve Findlay left the band in early 2017. Henry Geerts (guitar)joined Thistle in February, 2017. Having played in bands previously, and knowing Jason and Trevor for many years, he brings a classic rock and blues influence to the sound.
Since Thistle was formed they have played shows in various venues though out Alberta as well as private parties.
