Lady and The Trampled

Genre: Alternative Bluesy-Rock

Bio: This 5 piece was formed in the summer of 2013, in Calgary, AB. Although one member is Calgarian, other members come from Seattle, Edmonton and Saskatoon. Coming from diverse musical backgrounds, we try to incorporate elements of musical influences such as Black Sabbath, Blondie, Stone Sour, Alannah Miles and many others. We combine both muddy and crisp guitar tones to compliment the deep, groovy drum and bass lines, and bring it all together with rich female vocals.
