Trentalange's music is a balance between raw power, vulnerability, early heavy metal and disco beats. Her new release "Awakening, Level One" continues the momentum started with "Photo Album..." and sonically shoots into outer space landing on planet Moog. She mines the depths of the human psyche to compose character studies that would make Edger Allen Poe, Nick Cave, and members of Pink Floyd proud. Though dark in nature the listener can't help their body from moving and heart from racing to her sonic sequel. Drawing from diverse influences, such as Black Sabbath, Massive Attack and Blondie, Trentalange crafted a sound that is both unique and compelling.

"Trentalange digs deep into the human psyche for a place to command you to place the music in a genre capsule."
"Barbara Trentalange has created a mature masterwork with her sophomore release, Awakening, Level One."
"Trippy, spacey, powerful, angsty, and occasionally dancey, Trentalange covers all the bases and takes no prisoners doing so. It's an impressive effort that's earns even more props for being a true solo project."
