Time Changes Everything
Trent is from western Canada, and is a really good songwriter. And luckily for both of them, his younger brother Troy -- who lives in Nashville -- just happens to be an excellent singer. Together, they form the core of the Tavson Brothers Band. (Theirs is a true stranger-than-fiction, separated-at-birth story !) One of the things I enjoy about Trent's stuff is that while it's catchy, radio-friendly and full of strong, memorable hooks, there's usually something different and interesting happening melodically and/or rhythmically in his songs. From a producer's standpoint, working on his songs is very satisfying, because they don't all sound the same, and there are several directions in which you can go. - Steve Haggard Trent writes: I had never heard of the 'other Haggard' (Steve) until I pitched him a song for Bill Clark, who he was producing. Bill recorded the song, and I instantly took a liking to Steve because of his great sense for good music regardless if it was in or out of 'the box'... I eventually decided to do several songs with Steve to try him out. In the end, my brother Troy and I ended up recording 14 songs over a ½ year period because of Steve's awesome talent as a producer. The results were all radio-quality, and I'm getting ready to do even more songs this March (2004)... Steve has a natural ability to breathe magic into the music that he is presented with, creating great songs and still being true to the original version. His attention to detail and his genuine interest in good music instead of just whether a song fits the current mold, is an inspiration. I am a big fan of Steve's... You'll be able to hear his genius on our new Tavson Brothers Band CD, 'Time Changes Everything'. Steve, his lovely wife Gail, and the rest of the Wild Oats Records crew/musicians made me feel at home in Nashville, and produced a radio-quality recording which I'll always be proud to be a part of.
