EP 126 | The War and Treaty
Michael Trotter Jr – Tanya Trotter. The War and Treaty
They are the most interesting couple and the music they make is a heady mix
of blues, gospel, R&B, and country.
Their first album Healing Tide was so good, they ended up with a Grammy
They were scheduled to open for John Legend for most of 2020 but you know
what happened there.
Now comes the all-important follow-up Hearts Town. Are they a one-shot wonder or artists
who will be making music for a looooong time?
(I’ll take door #2 Terry!!)
I love the shortlist of influences in their music
Here’s the deal: They bring real stories with their music. Michael’s post
war trauma, Tanya raising 3 kids, and her love for her Mother Judith.
Hearts Town is also about the people around them and their fans.
Listen to the life and death story behind the track 5 more minutes.
The call and response in Lonely in my Grief.
We welcome Michael and Tanya. The War and Treaty and their new album Hearts
