Trey Roque – Singer-Songwriter

SOUNDS LIKE – A soiree where Joni Mitchell, Bowie, Elvis Costello, Lou Reed and Lera Lynn swap stories through songs.

In any event, Trey’s DNA is hard-wired to the 45rpm-school of hitting ‘em hard and leaving ‘em wanting more. Just listen on Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer, YouTube – the whole shebang – and find out for yourself.

NEW MUSIC FOR 2019 – 2018 was a big year for Trey – with a star-crossed love affair and 161 songs to show for it. This means through 2019, Trey will be releasing (at least!) one song per week in demo form on YouTube, and will launch a double album of haunting ballads titled “Intimate Letters”.

SONGWRITING CLASSES – Music is to be shared, and there should be no secrets in making it. To this end, Trey’s been running songwriting workshops – helping beginners achieve their dream of writing a song.

2019 will also see his alternate YouTube channel “Trey’s Way” which truly opens the kimono on what songwriting really means. An open kimono?! That’s gotta be worth seeing, right?

BOOKING – If you run house concerts, a coffee shop, gallery or festival – drop him an email. Let's make a show!

Follow – And don't forget to Like this Facebook band page for news on new releases and shows. Subscribe to his YouTube channel and Spotify playlists. In the words of Geddy lee, “Tell your friends!”

BTW, it's R-O-Q-U-E, as in 'rock'.....

Got Moves? 

This guy won the Tiny Desk concert competition recently, and with good reason.

* A solid tune
* A voice like walnut butter pancakes
* Sweet moves – especially when on a mic



Sharp suit too :-)

More tunes after the first one.

The Real Secret of Charisma 

Here's a very 90s start to this post:
 

charisma |kəˈrɪzmə|

noun

1 compelling attractiveness or charm that can inspire devotion in others: she enchanted guests with her charisma.

2 ( pl. charismata |-ˌmətə| ) (also charism |ˈkarˌizəm|)a divinely conferred power or talent.

ORIGIN mid 17th cent. ( sense 2): via ecclesiastical Latin from Greek kharisma, from kharis ‘favor, grace.’


Charisma transcends cash, youth, slimness and education. In a world inundated with cliche, charisma is the rare sparkle of the…

Good News, Bad News 

Hey Roque-fans! We've a classic balls-up to report – which, in the spirit of marketing spin, we're seeing as a glass-half-full kinda type situation.

The cock-up? Take a look at this track listing on the CD:



Now listen to "side-B" of the CD version of Subject To Change. The first song is I Said Something. And the next?

That's right. Trey did the old switcheroo on the tracks Enchante! and Clutch Hitter's Song. Damn his eyes!

... Really, we mean it. Damn his eyes!

You know, when you look at a tree in the summertime…Read more

May Day Is For Lovers in Prague 

Thanks to a famous poem, it's traditional in the capital, if not the provinces, to go to a park (Petrin) and kiss under the cherry-tree blossom.

Well, when it comes to kissing lovely ladies in romantic settings, we are always up to our chores, so up the hill we troop....

Meanwhile, there was some quite nice classical ensemble playing. If anyone know the pieces they're playing,let us know in the comments.


Firsts of the Season 

Spring's come to Prague, and the kestrels are a-screetching. Which is music to their ears, if no one else's...



Actually, kestrels are close to Trey's heart. Maybe it's the imprinting from Ken Loach's fine movie, 'Kes', or maybe it's how these birds thrive in spite of Man's depredations. Hey – maybe it's simply that they're a good-lookin', graceful creature.

Meanwhile a first lonely swift cut across the courtyard today. Another noisy bird, sure, but a good omen for the tee-shirted weather to come.

Gimme Mello Cello  

SUBJECT TO CHANGE is not even cut into warm slices and sent out the door in a nice square box, and Trey is already working on the next LP.

That's right. This one is slated for release November 2015... So he ought to get kneading more of that tasty dough, right?

To this end, let’s give a Roquing welcome to Ranjana Epp, our journeywoman cellist!

Here’s a rough demo of our first rehearsal, for that old favourite, SUGARPLUM FAIRY. It’s a bit shaky, as Trey’d just cut his finger deep on a trashcan, and Rani…
