Beauty In The Tension and the "art of rural Zen"

Last winter, the four members of The Olympic Symphonium travelled to the Old Confidence Lodgestudio in Riverport, Nova Scotia  to focus on capturing 13 new compositions. Working long days with the help and stamina of engineer Diego Medina, the band laid down this batch of songs and enlisted the help of several friends to sing harmony, play drums, strings, and even saxophone.

The result is their best record to date, a fully-realized and unique collection of songs by all four writers.Beauty In The Tension is now available from your local record store or wherever else you get music.

“Nick Cobham, Kyle Cunjak, Dennis Goodwin, and Graeme Walker have mastered the art of rural Zen ” - EXCLAIM! (8/10)

“Beauty in the Tension possède assez de mérite pour aller au-delà de l’idée qu’il s’agit du meilleur disque du groupe en carrière; on a affaire ici à un très bon album, point." - BONYENNE

” The Olympic Symphonium harness their individual strengths to come together as one, seamlessly crafting Beauty in the Tension’s unique and unmistakable sound”
