When listening to Train Company’s music, it comes as a surprise to learn that they have only been together since 2008. They have a sound and chemistry that portrays a band that has been together for over a decade. Starting from a group of musicians jamming in an attic bedroom in March 2008, they gained steam and recorded their debut, self titled album later on that year.
In two short years, they have grown to a level most independent bands strive for. It was not long ago they were only playing at house parties and dive bars. They quickly drew attention and started receiving radio play. In 2010, they performed at the SXSW festival in Austin Texas. Following this performance they were offered to open up for Blues Traveler at a sold-out show in Chicago, Illinois.
Their clean and crisp musical abilities combine elements of blues and rock and roll that keep up with the traditions of Clapton and Stevie Ray Vaughan. The talents of Mark Alletag’s saxophone, and female back-up singers add to their unique style.
I look forward to seeing how their career will keep growing as they continue to record and tour throughout the upcoming years. For more information on the band, visit their website or friend them on facebook.
