Trevor James Americana Rebel:
Pulling the roots of country music then mixing punk, rockabilly, bluegrass and New Americana together creating a familiar but unique sound. It holds the high lonesome sound we've heard from Hank and Cash but with a nitty gritty edge. Singer/songwriter Trevor James holds no shame for what he says in his songs. He tells it the way it is. Raised in Minnesota but born in Florida he holds southern charm and Midwest nice with open arms. Thanks to his mother Linnea Marrin who was the church music director, Trevor was surrounded by music at an early age. Eventually he would make his own tunes with his own lyrics. Trevor's songs hold nothing back from life experiences. He sings from the heart be it love lost or love gained, regret and the good times. He finds the upside to remind us that the sun still shines. He takes country routes and crosses the road creating an edge to his sound which makes him an Americana Rebel.
Little Riddles is fronted by singer-songwriter Robert Pieh, who in 2013 picked up the guitar living in Costa Rica and began writing his own music. Pieh's songwriting draws from the bluegrass, early rock 'n' roll, and country western traditions. With this framework, Little Riddles creates its own sound, blending important aspects of these genres into a 21st century aesthetic.
Having released their self-titled, debut EP in April of 2016, the band is following the momentum of their introduction, playing in the Twin Cities region and greater Midwest. Little Riddles returned to the studio in Winter 2017 to record at Minneapolis' The Terrarium, whose tracking rooms have seen acts such as Trampled By Turtles, Mason Jennings, and Motion City Soundtrack. The resulting material will be celebrated with a release in Summer 2017.
