The band Cyr is comprised of the core duo of Eric Cyr (guitar, vocals, songwriter) and his sister Rachel Cyr (vocals). The duo has performed in Duluth, MN and the surrounding area to a growing fanbase since 2014, and in 2018 Eric won the Beaner’s Central singer/songwriter contest.
In 2018, Cyr recorded their debut album Callused at Sacred Heart Studio in Duluth, MN with Peter Brown on keys, Keith Yanes on bass, and Sten Duginski on drums. The album was recorded and mixed by Tom Fabjance (Trampled by Turtles, Low, Big Top Chautauqua) and mastered by Huntley Miller (Bon Iver, Sylvan Esso, Ben Howard). Callused was released on November 16, 2018.
Callused weaves together a story that is at the same time personal and universal while musing on the mundane, the beautiful, and the places where the two meet. It is a catalog of ten songs that have grown out of Eric’s life and experience in the last ten years, songs that he hopes can resonate with truth and beauty within each listener.
