I Mi Lunasa
The Trade is intensity and sweetness in one modern, workable package of an alternative blend of rock and jazz; melody and groove. Front-woman, Robin Graham, has an incredible voice that makes you want to hear more, more, more, but The Trade sound is so well crafted that it truly comes across as a perfect unit. Their newest release, I Mí Lúnasa is an enhanced, extended-play CD containing a rock video to their radio mix of 'August', lyric pages, a cool, trendy commercial, and access to the band's web site. The Trade style is unique enough to make them stand out a bit from the pack, and is likely to impact the national rock scene. Influences include U2, The Police, The Pretenders, Marillion, Kings X, The Jefferson Airplane, Missing Persons.
