“Lushbudget is the nom de musique of Jason Trunzo of St. Petersburg, who plays “singer-songwriter rock with an edge,” as he puts it. “I tend to write songs about deeper emotions, abstract moments in time, culture and — of course — sex and love. I sing my heart out. I play my acoustic guitar too hard and too loud, and I love it.” Trunzo came up in Pittsburgh, Pa., where in the ’90s he led a successful touring band called D.O.S.E., which opened for the likes of Radiohead, PJ Harvey, Bush and Alanis Morissette. But in the late ’90s, Trunzo left Pittsburgh for California, Colorado and, in 2001, St. Petersburg, where he became an auto auctioneer and then an Apple and Mac repairman. In the past year, friends in the local music scene have urged him to start playing shows around town, at venues like the Globe and the Ale and the Witch. “For the first time in my life I am making music for no other reason than the joy it brings me to play, sing and be surrounded by my friends,”
