The War & Treaty: 9:00pm
Following their Australian live debut at Bluesfest 2019 where they were crowned the discovery act that year, is The War and Treaty, performing their first show in Sydney at the Factory Theatre.
While their back story is romantic and emotional, they have been paying music dues for a long time. Having both been gifted with incredible voices, the couple also have a natural talent for storytelling through song, a bluesy but joyful fusion of Southern soul, gospel, country, and rock-and-roll. Known for a live show nearly revival-like in intensity, the husband-and-wife team of Michael Trotter Jr. and Tanya Trotter endlessly create an exhilarating exchange of energy with their audience. Their latest album is entitled 'Hearts Town' which is also the Nashville duo’s adoring nickname for their ardently devoted fanbase. As their fanbase continues to expand exponentially, The War and Treaty feel more and more inspired by the Hearts Town community and its boundless potential for mutual uplift. “This is a place where everything that is broken can be fixed,” says Michael. “It’s a world where racism can be erased and where we don’t live in our selfishness, but instead always empathize with others. A world where we encourage one another and pick each other up, and we feed the hungry and we clothe the naked. Hearts Town is a place where you can come broken and open, regardless of your past, and find love just like we have.”
