"T. Strickland: (n) A string bustin', good timin', singin' along and harmonizin' type of top shelf tuneage."
-Ripley, 98.7 the X
T Strickland discovered music at an early age, but it wasn’t until college, when her roommate taught her the chords to “Where Have All The Flowers Gone” that she started to find her voice. Who could guess that the chunky, spunky preschooler on the far left singing “I’m a Little Teacup” loud and proud would eventually be belting out original songs on the stage at Nashville’s famed Bluebird Café?
From the small town of Washington, North Carolina to college in Chapel Hill, Strickland developed a musical style with roots in folk, blending rock, blues, and alternative influences. Her voice has been described as a cross between Melissa Etheridge and Amy Ray of the Indigo Girls, with a little Bonnie Raitt sprinkled on top. Whether doing a solo acoustic set, playing with an acoustic trio, or jamming with a full band, T attacks every song with vocal intensity.
