The War and Treaty
Michael and Tanya Trotter, who perform and record as The War and Treaty, make ecstatic, soulful music that draws on R&B, gospel, folk and Americana to create a sound that’s uniquely their own. Their stirring recordings and riveting live performances have inspired critics to rave about “the powerhouse R&B duo who sound as though they were born to sing together,” (Associated Press) and “the raw, rafters-raising power of their voices” (Los Angeles Times). In September, the duo received the Americana Music Association’s Award for Emerging Act of the Year. Recently signed to Rounder Records, they are working on their debut for the label.
