The roots of Southeast Engine formed in the 1990s, when original bandmates and schoolmates Adam Remnant and Leo DeLuca were influenced by the underground music scene in Dayton, Ohio. Once they made the move to Athens, Ohio, they added to the lineup and the influences. Traditional folk and Appalachia have helped complete and ultimately define much of the band's sound since.

Southeast Engine recently released Canary, the follow-up to the highly praised but largely unnoticed Forest To The Sea. The new album employs folk, rock and bluegrass to tell the story of an Appalachian family during the Depression.
