Official Trondossa 2018 Playlist

Widespread Panic

Widespread Panic has been together 30 years. Formed by original members vocalist/guitarist John “JB” Bell, bassist Dave Schools and late guitarist Michael Houser, who lived together in a suburban house in Athens, GA, where they met as students not far from the University of Georgia campus, later to be joined by drummer Todd Nance. The band’s line-up was solidified with the addition of percussionist Domingo “Sunny” Ortiz, guitarist Jimmy Herring, keyboard player John “JoJo” Hermann and Duane Trucks on drums. Over three decades have passed since forming their original line-up in 1986, Widespread Panic is still hungry to be the best band they can be, every single night, for their loyal fan base.

Sturgill Simpson

Sturgill Simpson

Sturgill Simpson has emerged as one of music’s most inspired and genre-bending artists. Each of Simpson’s three universally acclaimed solo albums explore different elements of American music history (bluegrass, country, rock, R&B, soul) and continue to push his work beyond expectations and musical boundaries. His most recent album, 2016’s self-produced ‘A Sailor’s Guide To Earth,’ was written — beginning to end — as a letter to his first child, and has gone on to garner industry-wide adoration, including nominations for both Album of the Year and Best Country Album at the 59th Annual GRAMMY Awards. In the past year since the album’s release, Simpson has played over 70 sold-out shows across 12 countries and has performed on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah,” “Conan,” “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” “Charlie Rose” and, most recently, the 2017 debut episode of “Saturday Night Live.” More information is available at sturgillsimpson.com.

Margo Price

A lot can change in a year: markets boom and bust, trends come and go, presidents get elected. In 2015, Margo Price was a country underdog just trying to keep enough gas in the tank to get to the next gig, but by the end of 2016, she was one of the genre’s most celebrated new artists and a ubiquitous presence on late night television and at major festivals around the world. It’s the kind of year most musicians can only dream of, and the arrival of Price’s spectacular sophomore album, “All American Made,” proves that she hasn’t taken a moment of it for granted. Delivering on the promise of her debut and then some, the record finds Price planting her flag firmly in the soil as a songwriter who’s here for the long haul, one with the chops to hang with the greats she so often finds herself sharing stages with these days.

Big Something

Big Something

A six-piece powerhouse with a sound that is both unique and timeless, BIG Something fuses elements of rock, pop, funk, and improvisation to take listeners on a journey through a myriad of musical styles. It’s no secret why this group has quickly become one of the most exciting new bands to emerge from the Southeast. Soaring guitars, synths, horns and alluring vocal hooks rise to the top of their infectious collection of songs and represent a sound that has caught the ears of such revered summer circuit stalwarts as Umphrey’s McGee, Galactic, moe., Robert Randolph, and even The B-52s, who have all tapped Big Something as direct support. More information is available at bigsomething.net.

Moon Taxi

“We can come together, we won’t give up on the fight,” sings Nashville’s Moon Taxi on their smash single “Two High,” a song that catapulted them to the top of the streaming charts and the forefront of the national stage. Filled with emotive vocals, a percussive beat and some unexpected, infectious horns, it’s a track that shows the band – which has been together for over a decade – venturing into more adventuresome territory than ever. Fearlessly melding rock with pop hooks, clever synths and roots touchstones gleaned from their home in Music City, Moon Taxi’s forthcoming fifth record and first for RCA will find the five-piece doing what they do best: coming together and fighting for music that triumphs above all.

Hiss Golden Messenger

Hiss Golden Messenger

Hallelujah Anyhow is the latest studio album from Hiss Golden Messenger. Its ten new songs, penned by HGM principal M.C. Taylor, were recorded with Brad Cook, Phil Cook, Chris Boerner, Josh Kaufman, Darren Jessee, Michael Lewis, and Scott Hirsch. Alexandra Sauser-Monnig, Tift Merritt, Skylar Gudasz, Tamisha Waden, Mac McCaughan, and John Paul White provided vocal harmonies. “I see the dark clouds. I was designed to see them. They’re the same clouds of fear and destruction that have darkened the world since Revelations, just different actors. But this music is for hope. That’s the only thing I want to say about it. Love is the only way out. I’ve never been afraid of the darkness; it’s just a different kind of light. And if some days that belief comes harder than others, hallelujah anyhow.” —M.C. Taylor.
