Tin Silver serves up solos hot and often, never at the expense of the band's diverse, smart songwriting. Listen to Tin Silver and you will hear the beer halls and Baptist churches of West Texas, sun-drenched California, and a little New York thump. You'll hear soaring country soul, hill blues stomp boogie, and fiddle-centric folk music. You'll hear a quartet with a deep understanding of roots music and the hard-won musical chops to prove it.
The band writes collaboratively, with guitar/banjo/dobro player Alan Bowen bringing the bulk of the raw material, as well as the fluent bluegrass licks and blues solos he learned over years of dedicated study. Drummer Matthew Higgins, one half of Tin Silver's Texas contingent, contributes the tight, bright, intricate groove he developed while cutting his teeth on Bob Wills country-swing standards. Paired with Paul Prato's bottom filled electric and upright bass sound and punk-bred attack, Tin Silver's rhythm section has uncommon fire and dynamic range. Tricia Rojas, the band's other Lonestar State ex-pat, brings sweet violin and the aching, rafter-rattling vocals she developed singing in church choirs during her childhood.
