Fresh off of their critically acclaimed debut release, Keys to the House, Richmond, Virginia’s The Trongone Band shares their video for “Blind” exclusively out via The Bluegrass Situation. “Blind” is the first track on the record, released June 30th via Harmonized Records.
Speaking on the video, Andrew Trongone tells The Bluegrass Situation, “we wanted the video to have a piece of our home, so we shot it in downtown RVA, right on the canal, surrounded by various murals done by local artists (one including Wolfe’s cousin, Chris Milk). The song suggests classic themes of love and peace of mind, so we went with a classic music video style. Simple, live, outdoors. Was a lot of fun for us to shoot.”
Hailing from Richmond, VA and formed by brothers Andrew and Johnny, The Trongone Band draws from americana and Southern rock. The quartet is rounded out by keyboardist Ben “Wolfe” White and award-winning bassist Todd Herrington.
Primed for the festival circuit, the band has graced the stages of Virginia’s Roosterwalk, Tennessee’s Riverbend Music Festival, Florida’s Slide Into Spring Festival, The Allman Brothers’ Peach Festival in Pennsylvania, and West Virginia’s Deep Mountain Roots Revival.
This family affair recording process helped the band grow “so much on a personal and musical level, and listening back and dissecting these tracks helped us learn so much about each other’s playing.”
