Trinity & Triage have released a new track today called “Tilting.” This melancholy sound of this song perfectly encapsulates the various changes going on in the lives of the band members. In particular, Ralph Feetham recently had a severe fire in his home that damaged the second floor. Fortunately due to the presence of smoke alarms and quick thinking, everyone is fine. The same cannot be said about some of the guitars. Ralph is busy trying to get things back in order and we wish him and his family all the best during the turmoil created by this horrific life event.
On this side of the fence, I have finally begun the remodeling process of the basement after waiting around a year for a waterproofing company to complete the repairs of their repairs after major mistakes made during the initial work.
There are quite a few songs started by the prolific Mr. Feetham waiting for work to be done. It’s a matter of time (and lots of money) at this point.
Have a listen to “Tilting” on our SoundCloud page and leave a comment. We would love to hear from you. There are also free Trinity & Triage stickers available. If you would like one, head on over to the Trinity & Triage Facebook page and send us a message with an address to ship it to. Thanks for listening. We greatly appreciate it!

Trinity & Triage Release New Track – “Travel By Whale”
“Travel By Whale” is the first new track to be released by Trinity & Triage since the debut self-titled album in 2014. The band has widely been labeled as a “progressive folk” trio. Trinity & Triage has also been embraced by the Prog Rock community and continues to pop up around the web on various blogs, forums, and music sites. The Overlook Hotel Records studio remains to be rebuilt, so progress on the new album has been slow. The good news is that things should pick up quickly this summer. Another positive note is that quite a bit of new material was already recorded and is in various stages of development.
In the interim, Deanna continues painting and working on various art projects, Ralph has recorded a large number of tracks as potential candidates for future Trinity & Triage songs, and I have been taking care of a baby boy who is now eight months old. I also have a studio to build this summer.
Having said all that, please have a listen to the new song and let us know what you think. We would love to hear from you.

Trinity & Triage released on Overlook Hotel Records
After a little over two years of work, the first collection of songs by Trinity & Triage was released on Overlook Hotel Records on January 1, 2014. Described as a progressive folk meets psychedelic/indie rock band, the origins of T&T began with songwriter, Ralph Feetham (Islington, London). Feetham’s unique style and sound on acoustic guitar drives a majority of the music behind this 11-song set.
Trinity & Triage also features the exquisite vocal work of Deanna Quijada. The wide dynamic range of the material is the perfect playground for Quijada’s vocal acrobatics. The first track on the collection is appropriately titled “Surreal.” “Surreal” hints at 60s and 70s rock with a modern sensibility. The track brings to mind bands like Badfinger and The Strawbs if fronted by the love child of Kate Bush, Yma Sumac, Diamanda Galas, and Nena Hagen.
For fans of Deanna Quijada’s cover art, here is the original painting.
Trinity & Triage contains a very interesting assemblage of instruments used to create the unique sound on this collection of recordings. Traditional instrumentation such as acoustic and electric guitars, bass guitar, drum kit, B3, and vocals are combined with Mellotron, clavichord, harmonium, sitar, and a colorful assortment of percussion instruments. “All At Sea” is a good example of many of the aforementioned items.
“We Won’t Say Goodbye” features Feetham’s tasty acoustic guitar work blended with B3, clavichord, Mellotron, and beautiful vocal harmonies. The dream-like ending leaves you reeling in nostalgia, introspection, longing, and hopeful that you will wake up with another chance to take in the warm rays of the sun.
The self-titled collection of songs also reveals a heavier side. Songs like “Cathedral” and “Those Who Leave” hint at shades of Deep Purple meets Gang Of Four.
“Three Sisters,” like “All At Sea,” draws from traditional folk music influences, yet with a unique approach that is all Trinity & Triage.
Three were the sisters And he wanted one for his bride The one who was pretty As ever, did first catch his eye
So she was A beautiful sight But a jungle-cat So gold were her eyes They scared him… So he passed her by
The next wasn’t pretty But he liked the way she did smile Like a surrender And bended her hands like a child But he wasn’t certain she was the best to be When he closed that door, he bolted it tightly
Like the deepest, darkest water Number three, a veil covered Did he swoon with love? Does rise the sun? How he loved the one Sweet as a sad song
Three were the sisters, But only were two who did want him One for his riches The other, just ‘cause he’d arrived But Melancholia could not so abide She closed the door, and turned out the light
(Open, give me what I like) Are we alone here? (Fall in love) Echoes to be Each to pass by Are we alone here? (I’ll be alone) Are we alone here?
Work on the first official video for “Surreal” from Trinity & Triage is currently underway. More on that later.
If you didn’t get enough T&T music, here is the single of “December’s Song” from Soundcloud. “December’s Song” was lyrically reconstructed based on one of the Boar’s Head Carols, “Tydynges I Bryng 3ow For to Tell,” author unknown. This obscure poem was discovered in a minstrel’s notebook from the 15th century, and no musical form of the carol has survived into modern times. It has been re-imagined by Trinity & Triage.
…and here is an exclusive you won’t find anywhere else. Every song from the Trinity & Triage album…all at once.
Thanks for listening! Keep sharing the music and links!
Vic, Jason, Mike, Mat, and I spent a year writing, recording, mixing, and throwing hammers around in a grand effort to bring you something special! Do you like your rock with synths? Perhaps you prefer your synths with guitars. Maybe you are like me and enjoy a very diverse array of musical styles, sometimes across the same album, or maybe even throughout the course of the same song.
What does it sound like? I’ve heard “future retro” thrown out there, but I have no idea what that means! Press the play button below and decide for yourself. Please share our link, “like” us on Facebook, follow our Twitter account, and enjoy some new music from Cambium!
Cambium is one of the latest projects I have been working on with some extremely talented friends of mine. We’ve spent the last year writing, tweaking, editing, mixing, and finally mastering our new album. “Let’s Send A Signal” will be released in just two short days on Overlook Hotel Records. Cambium merges hard rock, electro-rock, darkwave, post-punk, and indie rock into a highly melodic and powerful listening experience. I am very proud of our hard work and look forward to sharing it with everyone.
I have been extremely busy the last couple of years working on music. There are at least eight different recording projects in various stages of development. I recently produced and released The Replicon Project. It is a collection of eighteen songs inspired by Gary Numan.
The Replicon Project is a collaboration featuring musicians from the United States, Canada, Australia, England, France, and Scotland. The Replicon Project is available as a free download at BandCamp. Rather than paying us for the music, we would love for you to please consider making a donation to The National Autistic Society (UK).
Have a listen. I hope you enjoy the music. Thanks!
