No Evil From Me

by Traeder

Weaving together poetic, heartfelt lyrics with dark and bluesy vocals and sophisticated, melodic guitar playing, their music explores the contrasting themes of shadow and light, piercing even the darkest emotions with a ray of hope.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Good music weaves poetry for the mind, creating vivid images and raw emotions in the listener. The memory of a first kiss. The crushing darkness of loss. The tearful strength of fervent inspiration. Traeder mines such emotions in its music, striking deep into hearts and minds. This Saginaw, Michigan–based duo draws on their combined education (life and otherwise) to create a powerful brand of acoustic music. Weaving together poetic, heartfelt lyrics with dark and bluesy vocals and sophisticated, melodic guitar playing, Traeder’s music explores the contrasting themes of shadow and light, piercing even the darkest emotions with a ray of hope.

Singer/songwriter Carrie Treder has nurtured her passion for music since she was a little girl singing into her Fisher-Price microphone. “My parents were always telling me to stop singing at the dinner table,” Carrie says. She eventually traded in the toy version but never lost her sense of childlike wonder, and today she walks the line between infectious optimism and gritty soulfulness. (She also still sings at the dinner table.) After many years of performing in choir groups, as a soloist at her church, and whenever she found an open microphone, Carrie joined The GoodSpeed Band, a blues band, who she played with for a year. Carrie’s musical influences include Sarah McLachlan, KT Tunstall, Fiona Apple, and Missy Higgins. Like these artists, Carrie believes in putting her heart into every song. Hailing from Michigan, she has also lived in Ohio, Virginia and on a military base in the California desert.

A transplant from Indiana by way of North Dakota, nobody would ever accuse Dr. David Cline of not living life to the fullest. While guitar is his passion and he has been playing for almost 40 years, he has also worked as a dishwasher, grocery clerk, cashier, dock worker, grounds crew worker at a park, ethnographer (studier of human cultures), teacher of fifth graders (which comprise their own distinct, wild culture), educational researcher, curriculum consultant, technical school director of education and assistant professor. He currently works as an associate professor of elementary science education and learning theory. Yet, while he has increasingly focused on education and he holds a PhD, when it comes to his guitar playing, David is mainly self-taught. He developed his playing organically by absorbing ideas and styles from some of the world’s best players through concerts and recordings as well as countless hours of practice and performance, including stints as both a rock ’n’ roll lead guitarist and a bass player in an R&B band.

This debut album, No Evil From Me, will include an intriguing mix of tracks. From the bluesy “Stonewall,” to the inspirational “Prayer for the Light,” to the soulful “Fallen Angel,” No Evil From Me represents the band’s trademark duality.

Solid stuff
Great debut! Love the warm and personal feel. Folksy, with sass and heart. Don't usually listen to cds from start to finish (mix playlist addict), but did here. Love the singer's voice, cool lyrics and the guitar is solid. Sometimes and Jungle are my faves.
