Please join us to celebrate the release of Heartland Trio's first full-length album, "Year One." Music to start at 7pm.
PRAISE FOR YEAR ONE: “Constantly creative, intelligently arranged and often grounded in groove, this is one of the most engaging albums I’ve listened to in a while. The trio draws from an incredible amount of unlikely influences and sounds like a BAND with a clear direction and a very distinct voice." -- Walter Smith III, tenor saxophonist and composer
Founded by bassist Hannah Marks in 2017, Heartland Trio consists of Hannah Marks on double bass, Barclay Moffitt on tenor saxophone, and Rocky Martin on drums. The band draws from Marks’ musical upbringing in folk and spirituals, while grounded in the group’s improvisational and groove background of jazz and rock. Along with their original compositions, Heartland Trio also uses jazz standards, rock songs, and traditional folk tunes as vehicles for expression. The trio's sound reflects their desire to create with a gritty and spontaneous garage band mentality while exploring beyond the boundaries of the traditional roles of their instruments in a jazz setting.
