People often talk about musicians needing to “pay their dues” before they deserve success. Truett has paid his many times over; enough to treat himself and ten friends to an all expenses paid trip straight to the top. Sweating it out night after night in blues bars around the South, screaming into the bright lights and cigarette smoke like the ghost of Howlin’ Wolf, soloing until his hands bled hour after hour, roadhouse after roadhouse, mile after mile.

“I never really liked that many rock bands, so I’m coming at this from a different place than most people. I think that’s why my music doesn’t sound just like anything else,” Truett said.

Is Truett a soul singer? He was raised on Bill Withers and Stevie Wonder and can croon a Sam Cooke song or shout his lungs out a la Jackie Wilson. Is Truett a guitar virtuoso? Hearing him play is like having Albert Collins throw his drink in your face and kick his muddy boot up on your table to solo at the height of his powers. Is what Truett does easy to define? Absolutely not. He’ll take you from the Mississippi Delta to Prince’s Minneapolis, Chicago blues to Bowery Punk, down through Outkast’s Atlanta and out the other side of the psychedelic rabbit hole. That explosive mix makes for a singular experience.

Years ago, when he was still just a boy, Truett was briefly kidnapped by Ron Pope and his band, The District. A child prodigy on guitar, Truett traveled around Georgia sitting in with the band (who had strict instructions from Truett’s mother to make sure he didn’t “drink, smoke, take drugs, or have sex”). That journey marked the beginning of a brotherhood that is finally bearing fruit with “Be Mine,” Truett’s debut single on Brooklyn Basement Records (co-written and produced by Pope). The song features Godzilla-sized guitar tone pummeling a larger than life riff, powered by an angular, sticky groove punctuated by Truett’s hell hound on my trail moan and mind bending guitar pyrotechnics.

Truett is more than the sum of his influences; what he does is unique and spectacular. His work is evocative of many things, but a carbon copy of nothing that came before. He’s classic and modern, new and old, absolutely stunning in his raw, unbridled authenticity.
Established in July, 2014, and revamped in June 2015 adding guitarist vocalist Glenn Citino, TouchFire was founded on one fundamental goal – to provide audiences with cover band authenticity, variety, showmanship and originality resulting in masterful performances. By blending the special talents, styles, and characters of each member, the band is doing just that. Coupled with each player’s own longtime experience and expertise, TouchFire is certain to rock the Atlanta area with performances seldom paralleled or matched by others.

This chemistry forms a diverse song agenda and energy-driven performance and great 3 part harmonies that distinctively sets them apart. Collectively, the members’ recordings, shows and accomplishments over the years reach from London to Los Angeles, including Florida, Georgia, Texas and more. The band’s home base is currently Woodstock, Georgia, (located in the northwest metro-Atlanta area).

While playing a variety of rock music ranging from the 70s and 80s to present day, the band is not restricted to cover band music and offers their own flavor of original compositions certain to please audiences of all ages. In short, it would be a disfavor to anyone who strays from listening and following this new and exciting pulse of music!
The truth is we're not like everybody else. We break a lot of rules and do things our own way. We're a big, rowdy modern electronically twisted rock duo that doesn't sound like anybody else even though they'd like us to say we're just like 21 Pilots, The Black Keys, Royal Blood or even The White Stripes. We're based in Atlanta, GA. We tour big cities and small towns in the Southeast and Midwest United States and treat them all the same because the only thing that matters are the people. We don't have "real jobs," because when we met in 2010 we decided that you can make what you love a job and that's what's "real." We have an album called "Illuminaughty," and we're super proud of it. We're in the studio working on our next release in between tour dates and we are confident it will be the best thing we've done thus far. We don't have an agenda. We just want you to have an experience.
