A B O U T
With a name as wild and free as their sound, TRALA formed in Nashville by friends and fellow musicians Moriah Smallbone, Jesi Jones and Julie Odnoralov. In 2017, the group independently released its first single “Holy Collision” which ranked in Apple’s Top 40 Alternative chart and followed up with two additional singles, garnering a premiere with Ones To Watch for their song and corresponding video, “Gotcha.” After performing over 200 concerts throughout the US and Europe, TRALA has developed a strong sense of how to lead and inspire audiences through their music. A recent partnership with Convoy of Hope:Women has brought a new sense of purpose to their mission and creative work.
TRALA blends the throwback groove of Tears for Fears with organic pop progressions while the vocals of frontwoman Moriah Smallbone reach between the anthemic melodies of Brandon Flowers and percussive experimentation of Kimbra. Whether it’s a song that begs the question, “Where have all the good men gone?” (“W.H.A.T.”) or explores the mind of an abuse victim (“Reverie”), the group has managed to make social commentary catchy, tricking audiences into thinking and feeling more deeply. With the longtime support and refinement of Nashville based producer Konrad Snyder and British artist Matt Hales (Aqualung), the band is set to release music throughout the rest of 2019, kicking the summer off with the sassy and honest single, “Talk, Talk, Talk.” A full length album is in the works for 2020.
