Saucer is the name of at least 2 artists:
1. An Upstate New York-based band formed in 2018
2. A Toronto-based band formed in 1995
1. Saucer is an indie rock band formed in 2018 that consists of Jim Crawley, Jim Temple, and Evan Crawley. Jim Crawley and Jim Temple are formerly of the Albany-based bands Private Plain and Blue Factory. Saucer's debut album, Outside, is to be released on March 4, 2022. The band is named after the Jim Crawley and Barry Breckinridge project of the same name from the mid-90s (https://bluefactory.bandcamp.com/album/pie-in-the-sky).
2. Formed in 1995 in Waterloo, the original line-up received critical attention, winning several local contests, and playing Edgefest in 1997. Saucer have released their latest album, entitled Dallaire. The album is named after the Canadian general who witnessed the genocide in Rwanda, and was haunted by the world's lack of reaction. The band found his story heart-breaking and compelling. Naming the album after Dallaire is a tribute, not an intentionally political statement. The photograph on the album cover represents the fragility of life; the strength and vibrancy of the music expresses the tenacity of humanism. Dallaire is the convergence of these musical explorations. The band's diverse influences and musical charisma has created an innovative yet accessible album. The Toronto based band has continued to hone their craft, becoming regular players in local music haunts. Saucer's audience of old and new fans have outgrown several of their favorite venues, with line-ups out the door and down the block. The music keeps getting better, the shows keep getting bigger.
