Trumpet Grrrl / Press

"The local musical wonder, known as Trumpet Grrrl, released her second album in late January. Trumpet Grrrl performs solo with her signature trumpet, booming deep alto and keyboard–all at once, no less, earning her the title in my book of “musical wonder” '

“Standout Track: No. 2, “Amaryllis,” whose jazzy melody and smoky trumpet prelude wouldn’t sound out of place soundtracking an early Spike Lee film. Over crashing cymbals and tuneful keys, Trumpet Grrrl—known to her friends as Christina Coleman—sings in a deep alto, “I am the amaryllis/with delusions of grandeur.” Coleman performs solo on most of her songs, which are marked by her eccentric, sonorous vocals and playful tempo changes. In “Amaryllis,” the beats come courtesy of hip-hop artist P.T. Burnem. ”
