Southern blues-funk-folk fusion The Trongone Band have released their debut LP, Keys to the House. The album opens with “Blind,” an energetic track, reminiscent of the Black Crowes. Plenty of nostalgic influences from the Allman Brothers to The Band are evident throughout the group’s soulful debut. Standout single “Anne Marie” shares a story similar to the one Levon Helm tells us on “Ophelia.” Keys to the House is rife with Americana themes about lost love, small towns, big dreams and wanderlust. The Trongone Band conjures up imagery of boxcar drifters, rolling hills and dirt roads that are easy to close your eyes and get lost in.
The four-piece from Richmond VA is picking up speed, and we guarantee you’ll be hearing their name more often. Check out the entire LP, and be sure to catch The Trongone Band when they roll through your city.
