Songwriter Sara Trunzo writes the quirks, grit, and wisdom of the rural north in a fresh and un-romantic voice. She pulls from a decade of running a food bank farm where she helped get local produce into the kitchens of her rural neighbors living in poverty. Her time in Maine farm fields, fishing boats, community meetings, and food pantry warehouses of Maine add wrinkles to her characters and place to their places. Trunzo draws influence from master songwriters Darrell Scott and Mary Gauthier, both of whom appear on her upcoming record. She strives to cultivate songs that instigate healing, truth-telling, and transformation. Trunzo has received 1s t and 2n d place honors from the Maine Songwriters’ Association in 2018 and 2017, respectively. Her debut EP ‘thanks birdie’ was released in 2017; she toured nationally in 2018; her first full-length album ‘Dirigo Attitude’ will arrive May 3, 2019. She lives in Nashville, Tennessee and Unity, Maine and on the road.
Jake’s third release, One Horse Town, parades his growth as a rising songwriter and musician. Recorded over St. Patrick’s Day weekend 2018, each song on the EP was live tracked, without headphones or a metronome, to foster an organic sound that captures the raw energy and authenticity of a live performance. Drawing inspiration from John Prine, Willie Nelson, Sturgill Simpson, and Jason Isbell, Jake blends the stylings of Americana, Country, Rock and Roll, and Blues, forging a sonic print that is distinctly unique and yet immediately familiar. From the fear of wasted youth and waning ambition to the hope for something better, Jake’s One Horse Town opens doors to places we’ve all been before.
