What Do I See



From origins unknown, assembled in the bay area of California, these three classless, gentlemen came together to form the acoustic compost heap, Trash Can Trio. With 10 strings, strange rings and a penchant for hitting things, they utilize many different styles as a base for their original material they like to call Folk, Blues, Jazz Rubbish. There music has been described in such terms as “bubblegum in sheep’s wool. It stretches.”
Their debut album “What do I see” was released in June 2010 one year after their formation. For promotion of the album the trio embarked on an excursion of the west coast. Being avid enthusiasts of the performing art of busking they can also be found performing their music in the streets.
The original Trash Can material was begun by Adam Werstein as a solo artist. While studying music in college the second member was found in fellow music student Scott Yost. With Adam on guitar, vocals, kazoo, and harmonica, Scott on the upright bass and Dalyn Barnes playing percussion on pots, pans, chains and washboard; the trio was complete. All members are seasoned performers of various projects and genres. This group thrives on performance, travel, and expanding musical ideas; as well as socially conscious commentary within their music, such as: “Slaughterhouse Waltz”, a demented waltz with haunting kazoo exploring the meat industry; “Sweatshop Blues”, a Woody Guthrie style commentary on sweatshops; and “What do I see”, a rural blues lament observing the American political system.
With roots in the past and eyes to the future, Trash Can Trio aims to bring cultured, consciousness to the people through fine unspoiled music.
