Second album from husband-wife duo
Featuring guests Jason Isbell, Jerry Douglas, and Chris Eldridge
The War And Treaty, the duo comprised of Michael and Tanya Trotter, make a triumphant return from their critically-acclaimed debut?Healing Tide with Hearts Town. Produced and written by military veteran Michael Trotter, this 12-track album features their strongest material to date with Trotter's songwriting prowess up front and center.
Mainly recorded at Blackbird Studio and featuring appearances by such esteemed musicians as Jason Isbell, Jerry Douglas, and Punch Brothers guitarist Chris Eldridge, Hearts Town was produced by Michael and co-produced by Tanya and the duo's longtime guitarist Max Brown. And while the album unfailingly harnesses the thrilling vitality of their live set, each song spotlights The War And Treaty's heart-on-sleeve storytelling and poetic simplicity with greater impact than ever before.
"Hearts Town is a neighborhood strictly made up of people who all share the same kind of heart: hearts that love, hearts that heal, hearts that don't see division," says Michael. "There's all different types of people within that neighborhood, but they're still somehow all working together-which is exactly the kind of town we want to live in."
When it comes to making music with both extraordinary passion and exceptional chops, few acts today can surpass the sheer excellence of The War And Treaty. The husband-and-wife team have delivered a dynamic sound that joyfully blends Southern soul with elements of gospel, country, rock-and-roll, and blues. Also known for their phenomenal live show, the Nashville-based duo showcase their boundless energy and tremendous generosity as songwriters and performers throughout Hearts Town.
