Acoustic rock via guitar, vocals, violin, and hand percussion—this is TRM. Three guys with completely different musical backgrounds and influences have combined pop, classical, and jam-band into one sound - creating a band unlike any other and a live show you don’t want to miss.
TRM (Taylor Roberts, Mark Nippert, Brian Tavener) recorded and released Show and Tell in the Spring of 2003, an EP of five songs, two new arrangements of songs off of Roberts’ 2002 solo album, Picture the Scene, and three brand new tunes. Fans raved, albums were sold, and the trio began playing more and more shows as the year came to an end.
But then something happened. The live shows took on a whole new quality—Roberts began belting new ranges and breaking two strings per show, Nippert went wireless and started playing electric violin while standing on furniture, and Tavener pounded percussion lines that would normally require four arms. The band realized that they had found their sound.
Now, TRM has returned from four months in the studio to bring you their first full-length album, This Weather. With the new 11-track triumph, Taylor Roberts Music plans to continue touring up and down the East coast, and eventually nationwide. Listening rooms, bars, clubs, universities, and amphitheaters alike can only hope to contain the passion and experience of TRM’s live performance.
