"Trubador brings back the sounds of classic Black Sabbath"

Trubador is a grunge/metal band that released their debut CD "Earth" on Nov 1, 2009. Trubador brings back the sounds of classic Black Sabbath and "grunge gods" Alice in Chains. Sure to please fans of the "Grunge Era", they sing about the dark side of life with passion." - Leslie Snyder/Indie Rock Magazine - Indie Rock Magazine

"I didn't want to click away... cuz I was jammin!"

Here's the deal...we can be friends provided you continue playing ass-kicking music like what you got on your profile...I didn't want to click away while I was previewing your tunes cuz I was jammin! Would you be so kind as to send me a CD so I can play you on the radio?"

"Trubador are the finest three-piece rock band to have emerged since Nirvana"

"I first discovered TRUBADOR on MySpace Music and the first song I listened to was "Another Life". I played this song a few times because I was blown away that a Metal/Grunge (whatever) rock band were performing a song that both confirmed and articulated my own experiences and general outlooks on life. There was something magical, real and potent about this song that I was in a bit of a daze for some time. Trubador had struck me in places that only I had dared to venture in my mind and I wanted to hear and know more about them." "I, too, watched all their videos on YouTube as each one brought a humility, rawness and realness to a music ‘genre’ that in the minds of many would still be perceived as "tough" or "hard" and the like. Don’t misunderstand me here, as Bon Scott informed us - "it’s a long way to the top if you wanna rock n’ roll" and to travel that road requires a toughness that is rarely developed, let alone present, by so many who dare tread it. But beyond all that it requires vision and confidence to embark on the journey Trubador has set course for themselves - I said confidence, not arrogance and did I mention humility?" "In my opinion Trubador are the finest three-piece rock band to have emerged since Nirvana and are deserving of as much support they can get. I’ll tell you this, it will take a courageous band to offer Trubador a supporting gig or concert because unless the main act is as authentic, real, competent and capable as Trubador they may very well find themselves taking a back seat. Having said that, Marcoe (guitar/vocals), Criss (drums) and Jaymes (bass) are more than capable of being the main act in their own right and they know it too. Not just that but fans and listeners of their work know that too, myself included." "I’m the very proud owner of a signed copy of Trubador’s debut album "Earth" and will confidently state that this album would take pride of place in any discerning music listener’s collection, rock or otherwise, simply because it is a rare and documented piece of gutsy, gritty, yet sublime rock containing songs that will leave deep impressions in the listener’s mind." "Today’s music scene and "Pop Culture" it general has become overly infatuated with the personalities behind the music and whilst this is interesting to a certain point sadly the phenomenon has become so absorbed in the players that the player’s music often becomes obscured in fantasy coloured over with a thick lick of gloss in the perception of the listeners; a coat of paint that were it to be stripped away all that would remain would be largely a dull, uninspiring, repetitive and shallow noise easily forgettable - unless one enjoys being absorbed in tedium. Fortunately, Trubador would never suffer this fate because if you are interested in the three brothers who make up Trubador then go and watch one of their many episodes documenting their day to day lives on YouTube. Not only are they engaging, intelligent and highly entertaining they are down to "Earth" and as real as your next door neighbour. One would have to be a complete automation not to take to these guys and in due corse totally warm to them as I have - and far from extracting any magic from their music by "knowing" them you will discover where some of the magic emanates from when you listen." "In closing I’d like to express my personal thanks to Trubador for injecting back into rock music that which the past decade or so (at least) has almost completely drained via that vampire of vanity and commercial greed - oh, and deaf music "executives". MF, 24th April 2010."

TRUBADOR is an American rock band based out of Nashville TN. They have melodic driven songs with originality, depth, emotion and plenty of hard-driving drums. The singer vocalizes most songs with a heavily-felt presence. Sometimes they lighten up with acoustic work but still remain firmly infused in their heavier roots.

They've been described as having the sadness and haunting sounds of Black Sabbath, to the heavy feel of Alice in Chains in some songs. Most of their fans are music listeners who enjoy long listens, album rock, 90's heavy/grunge style and 70's metal bands. With a requirement of strong song writing.

TRUBADOR is a rule breaker. Known frequently to break rock-song rules by having many structures built within each song. They continually will push the boundaries of a listener. This can range from having no chorus, to no singing on a chorus, using half vocalized and half instrumental songs, going straight acoustic, and using a range of lyrical content from three worded songs to 9 minute epics.

They're described best by their fans as very original, kick ass rock band with a return to serious music writing as an art form. - "We place a lot of emotional trust in our listeners. We know we don't always follow the rules of what your "supposed to do" or what's popular for musicians today but we're guided more by what we feel the song needs and how we feel when listening to it. Ultimately we leave all the trust to the ears of our listeners and fans. They're really what it's all about for us. Getting our music into their hands and building a relationship with them."

"Watch" live bands. Let's not make "live" music a dying art...
