-THE ALBUM- "After All Is Said and Done"
This seven song EP features Trawick's best writing to date and showcases his extremely talented cast of backing musicians. Songs like "Sticks and Stones" and "Mexico" showcase Trawick's fondness for storytelling all things Americana and features the mandolin and fiddle. Heavier tracks like "Story of a Boy" and "North Arlington" tell the story of past hardships and love lost while the music resolves around slide guitars and driving drums beats. The title track, "After All Is Said and Done" is an upbeat drumless full band number perfect for placement on a "Grey's Anatomy" type of show while "Love Song" is Trawick's reply to "I'm Yours" by Jason Mraz. Finally, the previously recorded song "Kool Kids" is offered up as a "live-in-studio" acoustic bonus track providing fans with a heart felt, stripped down version of Trawick's most downloaded song on iTunes to date.
-ABOUT JUSTIN TRAWICK-
Justin Trawick is an independent, self managed/self booked artist based in the Washington DC area. Trawick is a multi-talented performer, expertly balancing between roles as a solo singer/songwriter and band front man. His self-described brand of “Urban Folk Rock” inspires comparisons with troubadours such as Bob Schneider, Ryan Adams, and G. Love. The 28 year old from Arlington, Virginia, invokes on stage a deep sense of raw emotional energy stemming from his incredibly personable lyrics and captivating delivery. Seamlessly balancing between the musical loner persona of a singer-songwriter and as the front man of his collective, The Justin Trawick Group, this versatility allows Trawick to rock out in clubs with his band to performances in intimate acoustic venues with just his acoustic guitar and upright bassist.
Trawick has opened for over 25 national bands and artists including Blues Traveler, Bob Schneider, Brett Dennen, Sara Bareilles, Pat Green, The Gourds, Larry Keel, Jill Sobule, Julia Sweeney, The Duhks, Hackensaw Boys, Tyrone Wells, Edwin McCain, Shawn Mullins, Ernie Halter, Curtis Peoples, Emmet Swimming, Last Train Home, Ingram Hill, Corey Harris, Robinella, Cowboy Mouth, Jimmies Chicken Shack, and even the Ying Yang Twins. Trawick has performed at such notable venues as DC's own Kennedy Center and 930 Club, Antone’s in Austin, The Knitting Factory in New York City, Philadelphia's World Cafe Live, and Hotel Cafe in Los Angeles. Trawick's song "Life" is the theme music for the weekly AOL podcast TV Squad. Recently Trawick was filmed live in-studio by CBS which will be featured on the CBS owned "Last.fm" website in a few weeks.
