Telling On Trixie is an up and coming New York City rock band created from such a partnership of opposites, the introverted guitarist and the extroverted lead singer who bring out the best in one another to create something bigger than themselves. On their self-titled, debut album, you can hear the seamless result of two very different people joining together to create music with skill and passion – and it’s music that is already substantially impacting listeners. In its first few weeks, the album has entered in to rotation in the top 5 add slots on stations nationwide, ranking as high as #2 on several stations’ College Music Journal Top 30 charts. Among the first to spin the album was Jonathan Clarke of Q104.3 in New York, KWSS FM in Phoenix and Mondo Blu in Spain. Several college, festival and club dates are scheduled to promote the release, including MidPoint Music Festival in September, 2007 and the Red Gorilla Music Showcase during SXSW week in 2008. This September, Budweiser named Telling on Trixie a Budweiser Premiere Band, featuring them on Budweiser.com. The debut music video for “Halfway Back to Sane” premiered this August featuring America’s Next Top Model vixen Jade Cole. Receiving an astonishing 9,000 views in its first couple weeks, the video is being broadcast on music video channels worldwide.
Derek Nicoletto and Brad Small’s partnership had its first experience in the band funk/jam based Trixie’s Itch. In 2006, they began in a new direction. Spotting the potential, Platinum-selling producer Jamie Siegel (Taking Back Sunday, Joss Stone, Lauryn Hill) spearheaded the debut album project.
After awarding “Angels Fall and “Orion’s Light” with Honorable Mentions, Billboard Magazine’s Songwriting Panel said of Telling on Trixie, “Interesting themes and catchy grooves…the talent is obvious.”
