Troutband is an Alternative Rock/Pop Band, with our roots in the music of early folk singers Leadbelly and Woody Guthrie. We drop a dose of Dylan, Hendrix, and The Beatles and wash it down with modern influences from Beck, Porcupine Tree, Weezer, The Flaming Lips and co.
We sing about hope for broken hearts and breaking hopeful hearts. Troutband is melodic, guitar-driven music that can surprise the modern pop-music cynic as we cross-pollinate musical arrangements with rockabilly riffs, lap steel, fuzzed out guitars and vocal harmonies.
Music is changing, not only in sound and style, but in format. We no longer believe in “The Album”. There is no CD, no LP. Our new Troutband recordings, collectively called “PHASES“, will be available here on this site, track by track. Donate as you like to download the songs you dig.
