Breaking the boundaries of traditional soul, the Loose Change Trio (LCT) creates a vintage sound fusing jazz and funk with a genre defying theatrical influence. With the release of their first record, Unstruck Note recorded at Mushroom Studios in Vancouver BC, LCT is poised to begin a rigorous touring and performing schedule. They launch their album on February 29, 2008 at the Back Stage lounge in Vancouver BC.
The band’s eclectic background merges the sophistication of a Jazz standard with the heart and honesty of a Soul tune, using music and story-telling to heal and inspire through the soul. LCT embraces a connection through an art form that blurs the line between audience and performer, uniting all in the spirit of love and community
Unstruck Note, produced by Adam Fulton (Terry Clark, Paul McCartney) and recorded at Mushroom Studios, is an amalgamation of lead singer/songwriter David Ward's history as an actor and classically trained vocalist, and drummer Greg Bevis’ varied past in Jazz and funk outfits. Reverently influenced by jazz, theatre and spoken word artists (Tom Waits, Shane Koyczan) and songwriters, vocalists and experimentalists (Jeff Buckley, Peter Gabriel, Nina Simone), Unstruck Note exposes Ward's soaring vocal capabilities and theatrical experimentation, along with the drive of their eight piece band that manifests energy, playfulness and creativity.
Previously touring in support of Ward's Debut album Never Meant to Know, LCT had a busy year in 2007. They were featured on the Vancouver television show "Urban Rush", completed two tours across Western Canada, performed live on UBC radio, had their song “Enough Said” from Unstruck Note featured as the track of the day on CBC radio 3, and were highlighted on Lisa Christiansen’s segment Hidden Talent on CBC Radio 1. Not to mention the many music festivals played.
