Treephones is an artist’s artist and the “musical moniker” as it’s been written, of Stephen Trothen; though better described in our conversation. He’s putting out a beautiful concept album this Friday (May 7th) that you can listen to in any dimension and it will make you fall in love with music again.. PINK OBJECTS.
If you’ve become jaded with music, I offer this to you as an example of someone at least STRIVING for genius, even if unintentionally. Now that I’ve let my emotionality set the bar super high, let me conclude this album description by adding that it’s something that you can put on and enjoy and it will only ask of you what you give it, it will only give you what you ask of it and it’s really nice. You’ll hear us talking in this and it’ll feature some songs from the album. If you’d like to know more, simply click the ‘Play’ button for this podcast episode.. seriously.
Ontarian Stephen Trothen, is also a good friend whom I haven’t been in touch with until a few months ago, but have always kept a fondness for. We met as solo singer/songwriters in the late ‘00s during the death rattle of Myspace.. and I’m pretty sure I saw The Hangover with him. He’s as sweet a friend as his music is ear candy.
Songs: “Matches”, “A Boarding Pass”, “A Map” & “Seeds” are all by Treephones, and from the album PINK OBJECTS; go visit Treephones on Bandcamp:
PINK OBJECTS will also be available on popular streaming platforms, and I trust you with the search box.
