La Jolla Music Society

An Evening with The War & Treaty

2022 Americana Music Awards’ Duo of the Year

Since forming in 2014, The War and Treaty have amassed a following as eclectic as their sound itself, a bluesy but joyful fusion of Southern soul, gospel, country, and rock-and-roll. Known for live shows that are revival-like in their intensity, the husband-and-wife team of Michael Trotter, Jr. and Tanya Blount-Trotter create an exhilarating exchange of energy with their audience, a dynamic they’ve brought to the stage in opening for the legendary Al Green and touring with the likes of Brandi Carlile and Jason Isbell. On their latest album, Hearts Town, The War and Treaty unfailingly harness the thrilling vitality of their live set, spotlighting their heart-on-sleeve storytelling with greater impact than ever before.

“Unbridled passion and torrid energy, never letting up, but spiraling higher and higher with a soul-searing musical power.”
