Greg Trooper
Greg Trooper
It’s not surprising to learn that artists from Steve Earle to Billy Bragg are Greg Trooper fans. Trooper, A New Jersey native now based in Brooklyn, excels at character studies, painting wonderful portraits of people living through good times and bad times. His matter-of-fact delivery – as both a singer and a songwriter – bring a sense of realism to the tales that he tells. His music lives at the intersection of Memphis soul, Greenwich Village folk and Texas troubadour. As a live performer he’s been described as articulate, quick-witted, extremely musical, outrageous, compassionate and kind.

His songs have been recorded by numerous artists including: Vince Gill, Steve Earle, Billy Bragg, Robert Earl Keen, Maura O’Connell, Lucy Kaplansky, Tom Russell and Walt and Tina Wilkins. On previous albums he’s had help with harmony vocals by the likes of Emmylou Harris and Rosanne Cash.

Trooper spends more than half the year on the road playing festivals, theaters, listening rooms and house concerts.

Greg Trooper’s thirteenth album, Live At The Rock Room, is a recording of a single performance in January 2015 in Austin, TX. It features standout Texas musicians Jack Saunders on upright bass and Chip Dolan on keyboards and accordion. This collection of 14 songs delivers a cross section of Trooper’s work over the years as well as the brand new heartbreaker “Broken Man”.

” ‘Everything’s A Miracle’ has all the markings of an instant classic” – Vin Scelsa (WFUV)

Incident On Willow Street is full of wry, wounded and streetwise tunes. Trooper’s windswept, Latin-tinged country ballad “This Shitty Deal” sticks to the ribs like no other complaint of a deluded cuckold you’ve ever heard. – Jewly Hight (Nashville Scene)

“Greg Trooper writes great songs, including one of my very favorite songs in the world, Little Sister. On top of all that, there’s his voice – an instrument I have coveted for 15 years.” – Steve Earle

“Greg Trooper has got to be on our list of our finest contemporary songwriters.” – Billy Bragg

Trooper’s lyrical manner is poignant and his singing is patient and evocative. – No Depression

Greg Trooper’s roots-rock can lean toward soul or country or Dylan, and it’s filled with yearning and promises – Jon Pareles (New York Times)
