Trouble in the Wind has been labeled as folk, Americana, alternative, country, surf rock …etc but the Southern California quartet likes to call themselves “rock and roll”.

 

The band:

Robby Gira - Vocals and Acoustic Guitar

Trevor Mulvey - Upright Bass, Electric Bass

Kyle Merritt - Piano, Accordion, Electric Guitar, Banjo

Larry Doran - Drums, Percussion, Vocals

Keith Haman - Electric Guitar, Pedal Steel Guitar, Piano, Vocals

The band’s stripped-down organic sound is a multi-instrumental collective fronted by songwriter Robby Gira, whose staggering powerful voice creates the center of attention of their songs. The group’s instrumentation of accordion, upright bass, brushes, banjo, pedal steel, and guitars color the emotional songs which blend and range from ballads to surf folk to soulful rockers.
