"3hattrio Year One CD"

Managing to be exotic and grounded simultaneously, the 3hattrio's Year One CD brims with satisfying musical surprises. Hal Cannon, Founding Director of the Western Folklife Center, wrote many of the songs, some in collaboration with band member and multi-instrumentalist Greg Istock. Istock adds occasional Caribbean flavor and dazzling jazz influences. Hal Cannon contributes lead vocals, banjo, and guitar. Eli Wrankle offers his violin and creative influence from his seventeen-year-old perspective. - cowboypoetry.com

"Dark Desert Nights"

Utah's 3hattrio depicts their music as "magical realism," a generally literary term describing works that blur the lines between the real and surreal. It's not so much Harry Potter or a world of wizardry; it's more about subtle, unexplainable enchantments that weave seamlessly into everyday life.

"Dark Desert Night"

Utah, 3hattrio create what they call “American desert music”, in which they create country music directly inspired and influenced by the desert environment around them. Their new album Dark Desert Night, which comes out today, sees them continuing to refine that distinct, forlorn sound, which you can hear vividly on the beautiful track “Get on the Bus”.

Still working on that hot first release.


Feeling a bit camera shy


3hattrio plays American Desert Music. Their songs are mostly original and even their old-time cowboy and pioneer songs have an unusual twist. The trio hails from Zion Canyon in Southern Utah and includes Hal Cannon, a cowboy music scholar and world renown documentary radio maker, Greg Istock a phenomenal bass player with a Caribbean music background and Eli Wrankle, a fine violinist who is starting college this year in Cedar City, Utah. Living in the same neighborhood surrounded by an inspiring landscape of red cliffs is what makes this group thrive. Their first album, “Year One,” was hailed by Baxter Black as a “profundo Gregorian sagebrush chant.” Their new CD “Dark Desert Night,” will be released September 17, 2015.
