"Memorable, Fresh and Catchy"

"The songs are memorable and fresh. ...After listening to (Inconsequential Background Music), I found myself singing the chorus to 'F.Y.I. Love you.'" - Setonian

Some people say there is no truth in advertising. They’re wrong. The truth is Truth in Advertising has been hanging around the Pittsburgh area since 1999. What started out as a group of friends hanging out and making each other laugh has evolved into a beloved acoustic act with two full-length albums, years of performing experience and a love song written for a cat.

T ‘n A (as fans affectionately call the band) currently comprises Billy (Seán O’Donnell) and Fred (Fred Betzner). Billy plays guitar; Fred plays harmonica and accordion; both sing; and neither really dances well. Both are avid, experienced performers: Billy’s music has been heard on radios around Pittsburgh, and Fred has written, directed and performed in plays around Pittsburgh.
