PICK FIVE WORDS TO DESCRIBE YOUR SOUND

I started Trance Farmers to honor the past and music’s roots. My great grandfather, Callie Veach was a luthier in West Virginia back in the 20s and 30s and hand built instruments for the country stars of the time. The old stories about him always really resonated with me and he was also the only “musical” person in my family that I knew of.  I wanted to translate the roots and richness of that tradition with a future spin. Upon that premise, some key words that i would use to describe my sound are:

Oil, Collage, Garage, Canteen, Chicken
