BandAlternativeRock

We are doing something different. Music is changing constantly, and so are we. The Trend is a rock band at heart, with influences from jazz, punk, metal, and blues. It's very important that there is ALWAYS a message and a meaning in everything that we play, sing and do... and we like to have FUN!

Biography

The Trend has been playing together for almost 4 years, we've played a lot of local shows, a few not-so-local shows, spent 2 years in a recording studio, made a great fanbase in our area, and made friends all along the way. We truely love playing music, and we love eachother just as much.

The area we live in has both helped and hindered our growth in music. It helps to live in a place where people feel trapped, lost, or hopeless when you are trying to reach that group of people.. and its a great place to be inspired. But, it's obvious that if we want to get a message out to the world, we need to reach further than our little corner of this red state.

We practice constantly, live together, and never stop thinking of new things we can do with our music. We draw influences from every direction possible, it would be much easier to name personal influences than influences on the entire band.

The thing we try to keep in mind is that we are 4 people with very different musical tastes... we think that gives us an edge. So, a guy that loves jazz, funk, and acoustic music; a guy that listens to a lot of folk, punk, hip-hop, and loves poetry; one that loves pop, rock, and anything with heart; and the guy that likes hardcore, emo, and acoustic rock... so, with all those influences, we make trend rock. (thus, the name of our website...)
