American made music with combinations of blues, country, folk, and gospel. Honoring traditions and exploring new frontiers. The groove is set forth by D.B. Smythe on the cajon and accented by Sarah Lucylle’s refreshing washboard strokes. These two elements create a luring platform for the licks of Chris Shotliff’s guitar to dance upon. Their music has the ability to transport you while tightly enveloping you in the resonance of voice. Sourcing lyrics, chasing melodies, enhancing harmonies, and earthly rhythms are the essence of The Great Trumpet sound known as “Spirit Country.”
The Great Trumpet is in the process of completing their full-length debut, “Gatekeeper.” Their 2015 EP, “A New Day,” is available at
