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, named the 2019 Emerging Act of the Year by Americana Music Association. The husband-and-wife team of Michael Trotter Jr. and Tanya Blount-Trotter deliver a dynamic sound that joyfully blends Southern soul with elements of gospel, country, rock-and-roll, and blues. Their new album, Hearts Town, follows their joyous debut Healing Tide.
