Come "Back to Oregon" 

An auditory obsession has been released

sound_albumreview-5359e5c719b75083.jpg

Trailer 31's debut album, "Back to Oregon," is the most basic definition of what makes music so great. Many people get stuck in a music rut, too stubborn to expand their horizons, while others thrive off of the newest sounds from the newest bands in the smallest towns. Whichever preference or position taken, "Back to Oregon" will call to the soul of anyone who has ever roamed too far from the goodness of home.

Trailer 31 is a local band with a modern folk sound. Joel Chadd plays guitar, banjo, and percussion. Standup bass, harmonica, and guitar are mastered by Jason Chinchen. Dustin Byers rounds off the band with his talent on banjo, percussion and the fiddle. The obvious talent of the trio can be felt across every track and the lyrics and music were written via mutual effort. Byers, also known as "Teach," and Chadd combined their experience and talent to design and execute all 10 original songs on the album.

Each track carries a message of a relatable, simpler life that can only be found in our beloved Oregon. The physical feelings and emotions that can be experienced from each plucked note on this album defy explanation. Appropriately enough, Trailer 31 has a saying for a tongue left tied: "Where words leave off, music begins."

For the sake of those virgin to their sound, for the sake of those who have been fans from the start and for the sake of music altogether, let us hope that this is just the beginning for Trailer 31. Bend music lovers may one day look back and brag about knowing of this small local group, destined to be a nationwide obsession.
