As The War and Treaty, Michael and Tanya Trotter serve up healing and pain robbing with
freewheeling joy on their new full-length album, "Healing Tide." Funky bass lines, keys, lap steel,
acoustic strings, and stripped-down percussion create a swampy Southern soul bed for the couple’s
transcendent vocals. A tour-de-force produced by Buddy Miller, the collection swaggers with
confidence only gained by artists who are wholly, proudly, themselves.
Michael is a wounded warrior who found his voice while serving in Iraq, when he was pulled from the
frontlines to write songs for the fallen. Tanya is a lifelong artist, drawn to singing’s power to take
another’s pain away. “You have to have a deep place of love within yourself to be vulnerable,” Tanya
says. “With The War and Treaty, we allow people to see two people that are not perfect. We get on
stage. We sweat. We’re overweight. We yell. We get ugly, we scream! My hair comes loose. We’re
vulnerable––naked––in front of people, and it’s a chain reaction. It allows them to be vulnerable, too.”
The War and Treaty’s music and stories bring tears and goosebumps, but ultimately, more is at work.
“I want people to feel like we care,” Michael says. “When you think about artists, you don’t think about
that.” He pauses and grins broadly. “But that’s the way I want the world to feel about The War and
Treaty.” Songwriter Courtney Marie Andrews opens the show.
