Truly Lover Trio is one of the premium Rockabilly combos worldwide. They have performed at some of the greatest Rockabilly festivals in the world: The Rockabilly Rave in the UK (2012), The Americana International in the UK (2011 and 2012), The A Bombers in Sweden (2011), the Rockabilly Rebel Weekend in Indianapolis (1996 and 1998), Viva Las Vegas (2003, 2004 and 2010), the Screamin' Festival in Spain (2005), The D-day Festival in Holland (2005), Midsommar Jamboree in Sweden (2005), My Way Jamboree in Finland (2005), Sjock in Holland, and recently they took Hemsby in the UK by storm (2010 and 2011).
If we had to describe their music, we would say it is pure Rock and Roll, Rockabilly, and a touch of Roy Orbison. The singer's vocals are often compared to the sound of early Roy with chilling results (in 2009 they played at the 20th Annual Roy Orbison Festival in Wink, TX). They have performed at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for the 11th Annual American Masters Series honoring Roy Orbison, which was headlined by Glen Campbell, Raul Malo, Billy Burnette, and The Crickets.
In January 2008, the boys were a part of the Roy Orbison Tribute Weekend that took place at the Tempe Center for The Arts in Arizona. They played the music of Roy Orbison to a sell-out audience.
A debut 45rpm EP called “Lonely Blue Dreams” was released on Sunset Records (#101) in 1998 and it’s right now a very collectible rare item. Since then, they have released 5 albums – “Hey Little Girl,” “Dance,”“Dig It, Baby, Dig It,” “Bullseye” (Twinkletone Records #104, 2010), and "Surefire Hits" (Twinkletone Records #107, 2012), and have been featured in numerous compilations including Bear Family's 35 Anniversary Boxed Set.
"Hey Little Girl" features some of the first successful attempts at beautiful songwriting, and from that album, "Blueberry Eyes" and "Forever Is Not For Us" have become favorites at every show. While "Dance" was an incursion into early 1960s Rock and Roll (every band has to evolve after all!), "Dig It, Baby, Dig It" was a return to the roots, still portraying some great original tracks ("Party Baby," "Let's Go Out Tonight," just to name two). "Dig It" also features a rare Roy Orbison track recorded at the Center For The Arts in Tempe, Arizona.
“Bullseye” was recorded live in the studio and the power of the band comes across loud and clear. Strong back-beat and solid bass stand behind some cool and assertive vocals. At the same time, all the original tracks also contribute to the unique style of TLT (out of the 17 titles on the album, only 3 are covers). Gems like "Twice Sorry," "Blue For You," "The Truth," and "Stranger" will leave you wanting more. Rockers like "Bullseye" and "Do The Bop" will get you off the chair.
2010 brought TLT back to Europe with a formidable appearance at Hemsby (a few tracks from this show are included on Surefire Hits), and they were back in 2011 and 2012.
Their, newest album, "Surefire Hits" features the best tracks out of all 4 previous albums, plus a bunch of rare and unreleased tracks, a few new ones and a handful of hot live recordings. It's a great chance to get the best with one click!
So, do not miss one of the finest sounds around. Like a wise man once said: “If you ever get a chance, grab it!” After you see them, or hear them, you'll also be yellin' "MORE, MORE, MORE!"
The new album is called "Surefire Hits" - look for the rocket!
