There are or have been at least three musical groups known as "The Story":
1) a UK psychedelic-folk duo
2) an American duo
3) a modern jazz band
1. The Story (UK)
The Story is a UK psychedelic-folk duo made up Martin Welham and his son Tom. They have released 3 albums - 2 on CD and the other on 12” vinyl.
Their first release was a vinyl split with US alt-folk band Whysp in 2005 entitled ‘The Dawn Is Crowned’. Their first full-length album ‘Tale Spin’ was released on Sunbeam Records in 2006 and was followed by ‘Arcane Rising’ in 2007. The Story contributed 2 tracks to the dark folk compilation ‘John Barleycorn Reborn’ (Cold Spring Records, 2008),with the foreboding song ‘The Wicker Man’ and the ritualistic ‘All Hallow’s Eve’.
The Story’s sound is steeped in the best traditions of the heyday of the acid-folk genre - the 1960s. Their sound has a timeless melodic quality and their voices blend richly.
2. The Story (Boston, USA)
The Story was the duo of Jonatha Brooke and Jennifer Kimball, recording and performing in the late 80s and early 90s. The two met at Amherst College and subsequently produced two albums: Grace in Gravity and The Angel in the House. Their sound is characterized by their sometimes dissonant, always gorgeous, close vocal harmonies and poignant lyrics (often telling a great story). They have since both embarked on solo careers, Jonatha more successfully. After a couple of albums as Jonatha Brooke & The Story, she switched to just her name.
3. The Story
The Story is also the name of a little-known modern jazz band. Musicians include John Escreet on piano, Samir Zarif on tenor saxophone, Zack Lober on bass, and Greg Ritchie on drums. The band has played with alto saxophonist Lars Dietrich. The band has one self-titled album available on iTunes.
The Story is also an APM Podcast.
