I have had the pleasure of watching Truett Lollis play since 2013. A friend of mine had been saying for months “you have to come here this young guy play on Monday nights at Darwins.” Since that first night of hearing him work his magic on electric guitar and vocals I have been a fan.
Performing tonight with Truett Lollis were Jon Schwenke on Bass and John McKnight on Drums. Truett played songs from his upcoming Debut EP release with Brooklyn Basement Records. This was the first and only opportunity to hear these exclusive songs before they are released in 2016. One of my favorite moments was when Truett and the band flowed into a funky and soulful cover of Massive Attack’s 1972 hit be Thankful for What You’ve Got.

My first album was The Allman Brothers Greatest Hits, which I wore out!
What was your most recent addition to your music library?
Most recent album would be Gary Clark Jr The Story of Sonny Boy Slim
What was your first live music experience? Which venue and which artist(s)?
My first live experience, my dad took me to see the Allman Brothers at LakeWood amphitheater when I was 12. We sat in the 13th row dead center. Derek Trucks Band was the opener, that was the first time I had heard of him as well. Incredible experience!
If you could cover one album in your music library which would it be?
If I could cover one album it would probably be Gov’t Mules High & Mighty. That record has so much depth. Killer songs and they all have so much ass behind them ha.
What artist do you wish more people had in their music library?
I wish people had more Gary Clark Jr. records in their collection. That guy is killing it and everyone needs to know it!
