The McCoy Tyler Band:
You can call it alt. country, you can call it modern folk--but no matter what label you put on it, in the current climate of popular music The McCoy Tyler Band's songs are refreshingly lucid, rootsy, and at times downright danceable. With influences ranging from Neil Young to The Devil Makes Three, Townes Van Zandt to Railroad Earth, with a little Bill Monroe and Tony Rice thrown in for good measure, this progressive acoustic trio from Santa Cruz, CA will have you out of your seat and dancing in no time.
While it may still be said that a picture is worth a thousand words, Trevor Borden’s full-bodied lyrics paint intimate, detailed vignettes in far fewer. At the core a singer/songwriter, Trevor seeks to convey images that tell more than just his personal story. Rather, he uses that same story – the experiences he lives and knows – to imbue his lyrics with a couple things that speak much louder: hope and truth. Born in Kenya, East Africa, Trevor was raised in the bush, chasing and being chased by baboons. Growing up in such an isolated setting may be the single most influential element to his craft; besides cultivating an idyllic, unadulterated, free childhood, it encouraged honesty and transparency, along with a good work ethic. After nearly a decade of involvement in miscellaneous musical cooperatives, Trevor has taken the solo plunge. Bolstered by the success of his most recent project – leading The Way Much on a 28-state national tour – Trevor is proud to be releasing his first solo EP "Giants".
