Triprocket was formed with a desire to write & perform music in a poptronica style, while creating lyrics that capture the multi-facets of human emotion.

Biography

The talent in Triprocket is noteworthy. Kaila Brasell’s (writer, lead vocals, keys, & guitar) strong onstage performance and emotional vocal delivery earned her a nomination as Female Artist of the Year by dallasmusic.com. Bobby R directs Triprocket’s musical vision, and is responsible the majority of the group’s remixes, while achieving a long list of outside production and remix credits in diverse genres. Matt Tinonga's uses the most current drum technology to allow him to faithfully duplicate the recorded material live. He is an impeccable groovemaster, but still manages to push the rhythmic boundaries. John Inman’s guitar artistry and discipline are refreshing compliments to Triprocket's music. Meanwhile, he is still active as a solo artist with two albums to his credit.

Numerous Triprocket songs have been used on MTV’s Real World, Road Rules, and Dragon Ball Z soundtracks. They’ve wowed crowds with their conference performances at NEMO, ATLANTIS, ROCKRGRL, & WMC. They were semi-finalists in Musician’s Best Unsigned Band Contest, and the winner of Best Dance Band at the Dallas Observer Music Awards.

Each of the members’ musical backgrounds play a large role in their sound. Triprocket’s comparisons to Garbage are well-founded, as Kaila, Bobby, Matt, and John all share that common thread of influence. Kaila also cites Aimee Mann, Elvis Costello, Sarah McLachlan, Matthew Sweet, and Kate Bush for her influences. Bobby gathers inspiration from his love for Brit-pop bands such as Supergrass, Charlatans UK, Boo Radleys, XTC, Blur, and Ash, to electronic artists as BT, Curve, Fatboy Slim, Bjork, Groove Armada, Felix Da Housecat, Daft Punk, and Basement Jaxx. Matt has an appreciation for club dance music and alternative rock, while John revels in the 80’s guitar rock from the likes of Journey and Def Leppard, along with progressive jazz and fusion.

What assembles from this is a melodic loopy beat, with equal amounts of edgy guitar and dreamy synth textures. Complete with catchy vocal hooks and poignant lyrics.
