The duo of Tanya Blount and Michael Trotter have been amazing fans for four years now as the soulful acoustic folk band The War And Treaty. They recently released their debut album "Live at Blue House Studios," which was recorded in front of a live studio audience in Bethesda, Maryland and they are donating fifty percent of their digital sales of the album to Operation Second Chance.
These two singers are not newcomers to the music world as both have had their music featured in television and movies, but bringing their talents together just electrifies their sound. The fourteen-song album begins with Blount's sultry vocals amongst a stark jazz piano in "Irony" as the two begin to flex their vocal abilities. They trade verses on the loving "One Nation" as you enjoy the live, instantaneous aura of the recording. Their voices really soar as one on "Another Round" and mesh so well on the harmonizing of "My Dear" that this is a perfect musical match. The album closes with the soulful blues of "Open Book" and you can't help but feel their passion in this rendition of "Maryland," which helps about being away from the comfort of your home. The War and Treaty have a CD release party planned for January 21st at the Hard Rock Cafe in Baltimore, MD, before heading down south for a handful of shows.
