Truett / label artist
People often talk about musicians needing to “pay their dues” before they deserve success. Truett has paid his many times over; enough to treat himself and ten friends to an all expenses paid trip straight to the top. Sweating it out night after night in blues bars around the South, screaming into the bright lights and cigarette smoke like the ghost of Howlin’ Wolf, soloing until his hands bled hour after hour, roadhouse after roadhouse, mile after mile.
Fast forward to today, Truett has not only developed immensely as an artist, but also as a songwriter and performer, touring all across the US and Europe, supporting the likes of Ron Pope and Jonathan Tyler, and headlining shows of his own. He released his debut self-titled EP in 2016 and now has a sophomore project, Lies and Lightning, under his belt.
"It’s a stylish, energetic anthem, laced with reverberating riffs, shuffling beats and awesome rasping vocals, each playing their part to create a killer track. The song has a true toe-tapping, American rock feel that’s right up our street, blending cool soul with blues rock...The vigorous melodies and stomping bass work perfectly to create a buoyant sound, and we can’t help but draw comparisons with bands like The Blacks Keys, Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats or Kings of Leon. It’s a fresh, original take on a winning rock formula."

"Fans of blues rock like Led Zeppelin will want to give Truett a spin..."From rootsy blues style to more recent hard rock feel, Truett brings a true rock album that is sure to please a variety of indie rock fans."
"Truett's self-titled debut EP is a hard-riffing onslaught of fuzzed-out guitars and urgent vocals. The singer/guitarist worked out each song while touring the American South, wailing into the bright lights and cigarette smoke night after night until the new songs were fully formed."
