Truett Lollis – (Guitar/Vocals) Born the only son of a railroad man in Cobb County, Georgia on Robert Johnson’s birthday; he grew up on a steady diet of southern rock and blues. Young Truett picked up a guitar at age 12 and was soon schooling his instructor on vintage blues licks from his major influences: Albert King, Freddie King, Johnny Winter, Stevie Ray Vaughn and the like. He is now the hottest young guitar slinger in Marietta, GA! Truett is only 22, but an “old soul” when it comes to blues. He writes and sings as well as he plays the guitar and has the distinctive ability to infuse his audience with the soulfulness that makes him an entertaining performer as well. He easily appeals to audiences, young and old.

Marietta GA’s premier blues band! Mixing Albert/Freddie King-SRV-Hendrix-Allman styles with pure Dixie-Fried blue-eyed rock/soul. Road tested funky rhythm section with young guitar prodigy out to rock the roadhouse! Old-school style rendered with youthful fervor served up with some soulful originals

Jody White – (Drums/Percussion) Jody is a veteran of the Atlanta Music scene, having worked with local groups The Fiasco and Taste. He was also the drum chair for Four Record’s artist Six to the Wheels before joining the Truett Lollis Trio in late 2010. In addition to blues, his interest in old school funk and R&B adds a unique flavor to the trio’s raw sound. Although he grew up with the standard John Bonham and Southern rock relics, he soon developed an interest in future-leaning jazz projects such as Robert Glasper and Snarky Puppy, which allows him to fill the sound spectrum to complement Truett’s unique flair on guitar.

Jonathan Norwood – (Bass/Vocals) Jonathan is classically trained, beginning on upright bass in the middle school orchestra. As he turned to electric bass, he was influenced by the jazz & R&B artists like Jaco Pastorius, Stanley Clarke and Nathan East, as well as the more melodic pop stylings of Paul McCartney. He turned to the blues when he met Truett Lollis and they formed an instant bond, quickly learning standard blues tunes and adding their own flair. They also discovered their voices harmonized well and they have become songwriting partners. Jonny attributes his unique style to his ability to listen to the other musicians.

Beau Hall The ego has landed. Mix Prince’s funk with the Stones’ rhythm and swagger, Stevie Ray Vaughan and B.B.King’s guitar slingery, and Douglas Adams word craftery. Somewhere in that group, you’ll find Beau screaming that he’s the best. It’s astonishing, really. He’ll yell above everyone that he’s the greatest. It’s like Ali, but without the punching and the blood. And the awards. And the respect. But OTHER than that – I’m just like Ali. If he was white. And played guitar. And didn’t seem to care about people being offended by my ego. Wait I mean a publicist is writing this – certainly not ME.

TURN THE MUSIC UP, and SHUT YOUR STINKING HOLE I AM ABOUT TO ROCK/FUNK/EMOTE/OPEN A VEIN for your mass consumption. I mean I do this for myself.
