We won't bore you again with the tale of serendipity that led us to see Trisha Gene Brady perform with The Black Lillies in 2012, but we're sure glad that it happened this way.  When we heard that TGB was going out on her own, our first thought was to hope that she might play Red Boots Roots (yes, we're selfish that way).  And when we got a sneak listen to some of her new music, we became extremely excited about what the future holds for our friend.  And now we get to see her perform her orginal music live.

TGB Live

Trisha Gene Brady is a roots musician from Knoxville, TN known best for her seven year run as female vocalist (guitar, mandolin, percussion) of the nationally touring act, The Black Lillies. Her recent split from the well known Americana outfit seems to be an open door to the next step in her career. She recently announced co-writing work with Alan Miller and production work with Raul Malo, founding member of the Grammy, ACM, and CMA award winners, The Mavericks.

Although fresh off the road she seems primed for a win with such a great team!

With her former band TGB has followed a rigorous road schedule due to what has been noted as “relentless touring,” and being deemed one of the hardest working bands on the road. 

“There’s a freedom to it in a way… you climb in the van and suddenly you’re on “road time” and it’s beautiful! Music, adventure, scenery… we’ve joked for years that we’re all crate trained to the van. You climb in, you settle down, and do what you’re trained to do at that point!

Now there’s this crazy unknown freedom… the “out of the van” freedom. And I don’t yet know how that one will work. Somehow, I don’t think it will last that long.  I already miss my crate!”-tgb
