"I can honestly say I'm blown away... I love "Doing Well", "How did you get this way", "Bury Me", "Nothing to Lose", "Overdose" and "Toast" to name a few, but this disc is solid top to bottom!"

Editor's review

No need to pick between hard rock and mood music--this Toronto group pretends there's no difference and offers admirable proof. The eponymous debut features fragile ballads elevated to sturdy rock anthems, as well as fierce ax grinds tamped down into intimate tunes. - Cnet


There has to be a song... there are the photos... there's the attitude... there's the MySpace... there's the look... there's the band... but usually there is no song... oh yeah there's a melody and lyrics alright but no song...

Stumbled onto this really cool band Trophy and heard a song I love... "How'd you get this way?" ... shades of my early Brit favorites... now I've got to see them live... don't really care about all the other stuff... the only question is "where's the song"... Trophy's got 'em...

Toronto Rock Collective Trophy Has Fine Debut.

A sort of all-star collection of Toronto-area musicians, Trophy's debut album is the product of a lot of work on the studio floor and tweaking at the control board.

The opening track "How Did You Get This Way" belies its serious subject matter.

The album progresses through various styles that showcase the fivesome's musicianship and songwriting talent.

Trophy is definitely worth a spot on the shelf - The Chronicle Journal - Thunder Bay


"It's not often that I can pop a CD in and play the album from start to finish without getting bored, but Trophy has managed to make a fan out of me."..."My favorite songs lay right in the heart of the tracklist. "Nothing To Lose" sounds like it belongs on the FOO FIGHTERS's "In Your Honor" album and "Overdose" is a sweet ballad to a new lover.

Bio

After holing up in a small Toronto townhouse for the best part of a year, Trophy has emerged with a debut album of finely-crafted songs. We cranked the knobs, all of them, turned the black ones all the way up and then pulled them all back on every track, explains singer Kirt Godwin. What remains is a stripped-down rock album, brimming with
melody-driven storytelling that is both a study in contrast and a celebration of subtlety.

Trophy continues to build their audience and live resume appearing with acts such as Bon Jovi, John Mayer, Squeeze, Kid Rock, Sarah Mclachlan and more.

Trophy has also been featured on popular television shows such as "Lifes A Zoo" on the Cartoon Network and the CTV series "Whistler".
