BIOGRAPHY 

Curating a polished mix of Americana and Colorado bluegrass, Trout Steak Revival has earned a place in the Western states’ music scene, performing to sold-out audiences, winning the Telluride Bluegrass Festival Band Competition and even winning an Emmy Award for a soundtrack with Rocky Mountain PBS. Their most recent album, “Brighter Every Day,” was released in March 2015. Produced by Chris Pandolfi of the Infamous Stringdusters, the album has received radio play and acclaim from fans and media worldwide.

Soulful narratives and heartfelt songwriting.  Tightly-woven instrumentation and harmonies rooted in the band’s years of friendship.  Blending the foregoing, Trout Steak Revival pushes the envelope on a progressing genre while drawing creatively from the many canons of American roots music

“Trout Steak Revival is Colorado’s next great bluegrass band” – Emerald O’Brien, Westword

“So if you’re like me and sometimes you need some good old-time mountain music, check out Trout Steak Revival!”  — Ed Karn, No Depression

“Trout Steak Revival is a five-some articulating very solid bluegrass virtues in a way that subtly and not-so-subtly ushers modernity into elder ways.” — Mark Tucker, Folk and Acoustic Music Exchange

“Music that makes me want to drive around Colorado with the windows down…” – Mountain Gazette
