Trae Pierce and the T-Stone Band (FUNK/BLUES/ROCK)

Trae Pierce can funk you up. A veteran of the stage, Trae has been touring with bands such as Sugarfoot’s Ohio Players, the Blind Boys of Alabama, Dr Hook, James Brown and more for over three decades. In addition to his time on the road, Trae has produced and recorded with hip-hop, rock and blues icons such as Flo-Rida, Phil Collins, Peter Gabriel, and Emmylou Harris. He has made appearances on national television and movies, and earned a shelf full of awards including four Grammys, three Doves, and a NAACP Image Award, and yet somehow this virtuoso bassist has managed to fly under the radar. That is about to change. Trae’s solo debut is a bass-driven masterpiece of funk, blues, and rock, featuring soulful hooks, powerful riffs, and the talk-box bass made famous by Trae himself.


Vanessa Collier (BLUES) is a captivating and multitalented blues vocalist, saxophonist, and songwriter, hailing from the world-renowned Berklee College of Music where she earned dual degrees in Performance and Music Production & Engineering. Prior to releasing her debut album in August 2014, Vanessa spent a year and a half touring in the U.S. and internationally with Grammy Award-winning, Blues Hall of Fame Artist Joe Louis Walker. Vanessa has also played alongside Annie Lennox, Kathy Mattea, Willie Nelson, and other notable artists.



Do yourself a favor and take a male vocalist who plays the keyboard, a female vocalist who plays the tambourine, a cello player, a mandolin or a guitar player, a little bit of Classical, Soul, Folk, Americana, and Love Filled Revival convicting lyrics. Put it in a blender; turn that blender on high for about 10 seconds to 90 minutes. Pour it into a bottle and label it AWESOME and you will get the sound of The War and Treaty.
