“Gettin’ out of town, driving in your car

Pulling off the road, stoppin’ at a bar

Yeah, we’re headin’ out tonight, the mirror compass reads N

And it feels so free to be this direction again”

 

Those lines from Troll for Trout’s anthem, “Gettin’ Out of Town,” capture the spirit of the band’s colorful 25-year history – a legacy that’s earned the Michigan band a diehard following and spawned an impressive trove of acclaimed recordings. Michael Crittenden, founding member and chief songwriter, best sums it up this way: “Troll for Trout and our music has always been about a lifestyle.  It’s that excited feeling of leaving work early on a beautiful Friday afternoon and pointing your vehicle North where there’s no schedule.  It’s about camping, cottaging, fishing, canoeing, kayaking, hiking, cooking outside, cocktail hour with good friends, good conversation around a campfire, river paths, reflecting, reading, and relaxing.  It’s about finding and reconnecting with the peace that resides in all of us, but gets buried by the day to day grind.”
