about

Dialect Trio play funky, energetic music that knows no bounds. International influences prevail without their mixture sounding like “world” music. Employing their back grounds and rooting in Blues, Rock and Funk to explore genres ranging from Afro-Beat to Chicha (psychedelic, surf inspired Cumbia from Peru), using a world of sounds and textures as they see fit, in no attempt to mimic traditional forms though with a great respect for the musical originators they emulate. Deceiving name aside, they have a formidably large sound, using live looping, percussion programming, and a roster of constantly changing guest horns and percussionist to bolster their interactive, synergetic playing as a trio of Drums, Bass and Electric Guitar.(Robby Astrove, Matt Mansfield, Russ Bledsoe)

This is their first full length release after releasing a 2 song EP in Summer of 2011 with production by Matt Mansfield under his moniker Piper Street Sound. The members of this band are not new to music, each with several other projects ongoing or prior to Dialect Trio forming. Matt plays bass with DubConscious and Flight Risk and Russ led The Green Hit and Neo-Griot while Robby has been playing with bands for the last 15 years, all the while kicking ass as a ranger and tree expert working with organizations like Concrete Jungle and Trees Atlanta. Dialect Trio grew as a project out of a shared desire to explore music together.
