The Banjolorian is the latest release from The Trouble Notes. A playful mix of traditional Folk instruments and Hiphop grooves, the track sits at the juxtaposition between rural Americana Folk, and Urban rhythms that have been a driver behind the group’s unique sound.
The vision for the song came together whilst traveling extensively in the American West during their Lose Your Ties tour in 2019.
In typical ”Trouble” fashion, they met some epic musicians from both the Hiphop and Folk scenes that shaped the vision for the song, dreaming to create something that would fuse the two genres together. The Banjolorian is playful and light hearted on the surface, but beneath the uplifting melodies is a deep appreciation for the tradition of the genres.
“Growing up in the Midwest of America, I was exposed to a wide range of musical influence. Yes, I studied classical music, but my music collection was highlighted by Americana, Rock and Hiphop records. It was these influences that led me to shape the repertoire of The Trouble Notes. The Banjolorian is a nod to those formative years of my life.”
